Universal Studios Japan has declared that Super Nintendo World won't be opening one month from now as arranged.

Universal Studios Japan stated it will reveal the new official opening date after the state of emergency is lifted.

Super Nintendo World was set to open at Universal Studios Japan on February 4, but that opening has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

I've reached the point of feeling relieved when places come to terms with the fact that they can't be open right now. Also during the state of emergency, we will set additional capacity limitations in accordance with the government and the local authorities' guidelines.

The park is basically open until 7 p.m.in line with the state of emergency, but it will significantly limit the number of visitors further from Sunday, the operator said.

We sincerely apologize to all the guests and stakeholders who are looking forward to the opening of "Super Nintendo World" for their concern. We will announce the grand opening date soon after the lift of the state of emergency.

The state of emergency now covers eight of Japan's 10 most populous prefectures and over half of the nation's population.

Nintendo Co's long-awaited foray into amusement parks was originally set to open in July previous year ahead of the Tokyo Olympic Games.

Featuring a real-life Bowser's Castle and an interactive Mario Kart ride, the attraction, part of the existing Universal Studio's theme park in the western city of Osaka, had been expected to draw huge crowds.
