Nintendo Announces Construction of Gallery in Kyoto

Nintendo Co., Ltd. will be turning a former production plant into an official gallery showcasing the history of their products since their founding in 1889.

The Nintendo Uji Ogura Plant, built in 1969 and closed in 2014, was a production plant for Nintendo’s signature Hanafuda cards and playing cards business, as well as a customer service center for product repairs. Nintendo has decided to renovate the facility and turn it into a gallery for their history. It currently has the name of “Nintendo Gallery”, where “Nintendo’s historical products will be showcased, and exhibits and experiences will be available”.

The press release has included a conceptual drawing:

Nintendo plans on completing the “Nintendo Gallery” within the 2023 Fiscal Year, which ends in March 2024.
