Universal Studios Japan has officially confirmed that Super Nintendo World has been delayed.

In the released statement, which accompanies the park’s efforts to enforce safety guidelines against the COVID-19 pandemic, Universal plans on releasing an opening timeframe around this Fall.

The delay should come to no surprise as the effects of the pandemic are being felt far and wide, especially in the travel industry.

From the release:

Regarding “SUPER NINTENDO WORLD,” which aims to open before the Tokyo Olympics, we are considering introducing it in line with the future increase in the number of customers and will announce the opening time around this fall.

Universal had just started their promotion campaign earlier this year, calling 2020 the “Year of Super Nintendo World”.

Super Nintendo World will open across all Universal Parks, including Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Orlando, and Universal Studios Singapore.
