Popular console gaming company Nintendo announced that it will be building a museum tentatively called the Nintendo Gallery which will house its historic products. The museum will replace the old Uji Ogura manufacturing plant and customer service center in Kyoto which is no longer in use. The Nintendo Gallery will showcase nostalgic Nintendo products from over the years and invite guests to engage with exhibits and experiences.
The Nintendo Gallery is designed to highlight the gaming company's history and philosophy in a tangible way. Early renders of the museum suggest a modern design for the space that retains the defining characteristics of the original plant. The museum will be constructed as an integrated element of the planned redevelopment of the area around Ogura Station. The Nintendo Gallery is slated to finish in March 2024.
