On June 2nd, gaming giant Nintendo announced the company will be converting one of its old factories into a museum. The Nintendo Gallery is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2024.
The old Nintendo Uji Ogura Plant in Kyoto will serve as the site of the new museum. The plant was built in 1969 but has been vacant since 2016.
“Nintendo has been discussing the possibility of building a gallery, as a way to share Nintendo’s product development history and philosophy with the public,” the company said in a press release. “To this end, the Nintendo Uji Ogura Plant will be renovated to accommodate the gallery, a decision reached after taking consideration of The City of Uji’s plan of re-developing the nearby Ogura Station area.”
The exact functionality and details of the museum experience have not been revealed at this time.
