Universal Studios Japan reportedly plans to postpone the opening of its Nintendo theme park, Super Nintendo World.
According to anonymous sources “familiar with the matter” linking the news to the Business Times, owner Comcast is expected to confirm the delay later this week and declare that the delay is due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
While the park was expected to open before the Tokyo 2020 Olympics scheduled for this summer, the pandemic has seen the event postponed. However, not all bad news; Construction of the park is said to be “almost complete” and Comcast still hopes to launch the park later in 2020.
As Connor reported earlier this year, photos of the park’s construction began showing up last year, showing familiar pieces of Mario’s landscape such as Bowser Castle and a giant hill dotted with question mark blocks and a sign post. goal. Since then, we’ve also seen an aerial shot of the park.
«You can see many blocks to hit the head, Goombas to trample and pipes to deform. Actually, you probably won’t do any of those things in Super Nintendo World, but you can see some of the real attractions you’ll enjoy if you squint enough, “Jordan wrote of the park at the time.
While we wait for official confirmation anyway, here is the official trailer for the park again. Enjoy!
