This just in: Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa released a statement early today for plans on a Nintendo museum! The company plans to transform their Uji Ogura Plant in Kyoto into a gallery to showcase all the products they’ve released over the decades.
The Uji Orgura plant has operated as a product repairs customer service center as well as a manufacturing center for playing cards and Hanafuda cards.
Nintendo envisions this “Nintendo Gallery” (tentative name) to be complete within the 2023 fiscal year, which ends in March 2024. Although no specifics were outlined, the company intends to include “exhibits and experiences”.
This would be a wonderful opportunity for Nintendo to share its history and culture. The original NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) was launched over 30 years ago, and the company has sold over 790 million units and more than 5 billion video games world-wide. Nintendo headquarters is also located in Kyoto, Japan.
What would you like to see in this future “Nintendo Gallery”? Would this be a place on your travel bucket list? I know it’s on mine! Let us know your thoughts on our Discord!
