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.
