Expected to be completed in March 2024, the Nintendo Gallery will be opened in an old card factory.
On Jun 2, Nintendo’s representative director and president Shuntaro Furukawa announced that they will be opening a new gallery at its Nintendo Uji Ogura Plant, named Nintendo Gallery.
The gallery is expected to be completed in March 2024, and will showcase Nintendo’s products launched over the years. It will also include various exhibits and experiences, sharing Nintendo’s product development history and philosophy with the public.
Since the launch of the Nintendo Entertainment System 50 years ago, Nintendo has created various franchises that have become famous worldwide, such as Mario, The Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing. In total, Nintendo has sold more than five billion video games and over 790 million hardware units globally.
Built in 1969, the Nintendo Uji Ogura Plant was initially known as the Uji Plant until 1988. It used to manufacture both playing cards and hanafuda cards (a style of Japanese playing cards), and also operated as a customer service center for product repairs.
After these functions were transferred to the current Uji Plant in November 2016, there had been discussions on how to use the Uji Ogura Plant. In consideration of the city of Uji’s plan of re-developing the nearby Ogura Station area, it was finally decided that the plant will undergo renovation for the gallery.
