Universal Studios Japan delays Nintendo area opening due to state of emergency


Universal Studios Japan said on Thursday it would postpone the opening of its Super Nintendo World area from a scheduled date of Feb 4 until after the lifting of a state of emergency in the Osaka Prefecture.

On Wednesday Japan widened the emergency beyond Tokyo, the capital, to seven more prefectures, including Osaka, amid a steady rise in coronavirus infections. The emergency is set to run until Feb 7.

Universal Studios Japan is owned by Comcast Corp.
