p. 42 - Super Nintendo World opening February 4th, 2021!

Recommended Posts

^ Yes, especially Japan. I've seen people sit down ready for Fantasmic at TDS almost 4 hours before and people show up almost an hour early just to try the lottery for show tickets for night-time or theater shows at both the Japanese Disney parks.

Here are a few photos that ran in a variety of Japanese newspapers last month.  The new Opening Date is Spring 2021

I feel like it looks very 'Men in Black' ish.

Yes, I'd like to see that, too, but I can also understand why they would like to keep things under wraps and build the anticipation a bit more.

Super Nintendo Land, has been delayed due to the state of emergency in the Osaka prefecture. It was due to open on the 4th of February and they will decide on a new date once this has been lifted.

It was inevitable.

 

I think the Tokyo Olympics will end up getting axed this year too. I feel bad for Japan as I know they would have been great hosts and would have been prepared for it unlike other countries in the past. I don't know if they will push each host city's date back four years and let Tokyo host in 2024, but if not then the Olympic committee needs to give the next open Olympics to Tokyo. I know Tokyo isn't Osaka but I think the Olympic tourism would have trickled more people in Osaka and USJ. Not that USJ needs any more people to visit, they are plenty crowded already.

I think they're still hoping to host it, hence the state of emergencies being used around Japan. I also don't see it happening but with all the money already invested and jobs promised they'll try everything they can before it gets cancelled. There is insurance but there have been estimates that a cancellation could cost Japan up to $50 billion.

 

Even taking the next slot or next open slot causes a lot of issues in terms of maintaining everything, having to redo all the logistics and planning especially since the next open slot is 2032, but it's hard to gather how much a delay would cost until a date is decided and after the games have finally happened. One of the reasons it's still called Tokyo 2020 is because of the cost of re-branding, merchandising etc.
