TOKYO: 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.
