Universal Studios Japan Delays Opening of Super Nintendo World


We have some sad news to report today. The highly anticipated Super Nintendo World that was coming to Universal Studios Japan, in Osaka,  had apparently been delayed.

According to the NHK News site, The new expansion that cost about ¥60 billion ($560 million) will not be opening this summer as originally planned. The opening has been delayed to “avoid congestion” and prevent new infections during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Originally headed for opening late July, 2020, it has now been delayed and no new date has been given.

The area is almost complete, but now they are waiting.

This comes after news that the Epic Universe addition for Universal Orlando has also been delayed for an unspecified amount of time. The Epic Universe expansion was to contain an even larger version of Super Nintendo World.

Hopefully it can all get back on track soon.

What do you think? Comment and let us know.

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 2017-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids!
