Universal Studios Japan has announced (Japanese only) it will postpone the opening date of its new area Super Nintendo World, which was originally scheduled to open on February 4. The decision was made after Osaka was added to the list of prefectures under a state of emergency on January 13.
For the time being, USJ will operate with limited visitor numbers between January 17 and February 7, the current official end date for the state of emergency. If you’ve already purchased tickets with entry dates between February 4 to 28, you’ll be able to use them any time between March 1 and June 30.
Meanwhile, if you purchased a Universal Express Pass, a ticket to the Universal VIP Tour Super Nintendo World, a Universal VIP Experience or an exchange ticket for the Power Up Band for the dates between February 4 and 28 you’ll receive a full refund. For more information, see here (Japanese only). Anyone with tickets valid between now and February 3 may also be entitled to a refund; see here.
No new opening date for Super Nintendo World has been announced, but it’s expected a decision will be made after the state of emergency has been lifted in Osaka.
