Where many see an issue, Nintendo sees an opportunity. The popular Japanese game company has announced plans to convert one of their production facilities into a museum of sorts.

Announced on their corporate portal, Nintendo plans to take the Uji Orgura plant located just outside of Tokyo, Japan, and convert it into the Nintendo Gallery. Here, they will showcase a variety of Nintendo products that were developed over their many years in operation.

The Uji Orgura plant, which was built in 1969, used to work on everything from playing cards to customer electronic repairs. It was shut down in 2016 and operations were relocated to a new plant. The building has sat there since, inactive.

It was only after the City of Uji announced plans to redevelop the area that Nintendo saw the chance to convert it into a public attraction.

This also aligns with Nintendos recent efforts at developing real-life tourism locations. Just recently, the company launched a Super Nintendo World amusement park location in Osaka, and is actively developing two more of them in the United States.

Nintendo estimates that the gallery will be completed some time in early 2024. Ideally, the pandemic should be over by then, and travel restrictions wont be an issue.
