Universal Studios Japan has delayed the opening of Super Nintendo World that was set for February 4th, 2021, as a new state of emergency was issued to the Osaka Prefecture due to the ongoing pandemic.

The opening date will be decided and announced after the state of emergency is lifted.

This is the 2nd time Super Nintendo World has been delayed due to the pandemic, as the land was originally supposed to open in Summer 2020.

In addition to Super Nintendo World’s delay, the park will significantly limit the number of visitors during the state of emergency and will cooperate with the policies of the government and local governments – but the park will remain open at this time.

Universal had just restarted their promotion campaign recently, showing some previews around the land and attractions. The land had been in “soft opening” mode for limited guests since December 2020.

The multi-layered land, with familiar landmarks such as Bowser’s Castle, Peach’s Castle, Toad’s House, and the familiar look of a Super Mario Bros game level, will feature several attractions – headlined by Mario Kart: Koopa’s Challenge.

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