Universal Studios Japan had planned to open its Nintendo-based theme park on February 4, but after a state of emergency was declared in several prefectures, it was pushed back indefinitely. As Reuters Japan is experiencing a third wave of coronavirus infections that have reached record levels, and Osaka, where the park is located, is a hotspot, reports.
Bloomberg reporter Takashi Mochizuki highlighted the announcement, which indicates that the opening will not be postponed until after the state of emergency has been lifted. Universal Studios first pushed back its scheduled opening date last summer, and the growing number of infections more than justifies waiting a little longer. For now, if you want to experience the “life-size living video game”, taking a Super Nintendo World walkthrough with Shigeru Miyamoto is the best, safest, and only way available.
