Universal Orlando confirmed that the upcoming Super Nintendo World attraction has been delayed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Super Nintendo World was set to open in 2023, but the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has put a stop to that. Super Nintendo World in Japan is due to open later this year.
Universal Orlando said in a recent report that Epic Universe will not be meeting its 2023 opening date.
Jeff Shell, CEO of NBCUniversal noted
We are continually adjusting our cost base and capital, including pausing development of our Epic Universe project in Florida, for example, until the future becomes more certain.
Given the cultural force that is Nintendo and the obvious excitement with which Universal has been talking about the new addition, it’s safe to assume that Super Nintendo World will be just as much of an anchor to Universal Parks and Resorts’s future growth and development as the Boy Wizard has proven to be over the past decade.
