After several months of delays, it’s finally time for Universal Studios Japan’s Super Nintendo World to open to the public! Overnight, Universal Studios Japan and Nintendo announced that next Thursday, March 18th will be the official grand opening.



The park was originally set for Spring 2020 ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Then, there were plans for the area to open on February 4th, but it was postponed due to COVID-19 yet again. Despite that, since January, it’s been open for invited guests, media, and special ticket holders.

Guests at Super Nintendo World will be required to follow strict health guidelines and the park will be capping the maximum number of people, along with issuing numbered tickets that have specific entry times.

It is worth noting that Japan’s borders are still closed to residents of most other countries amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, so only Japanese citizens will be able to attend the opening of Super Nintendo World at this time.
