Back in 2021, Universal Studios Japan announced a very exciting new attraction in the form of a parade called the “No Limit! Parade”. The “innovative” parade would feature globally popular characters from Super Mario Bros., Pokémon, Illumination’s Minions and Sing, Peanuts, Sesame Street, and Hello Kitty.
The new parade would also mark the first appearance of Super Mario Bros. characters following the SUPER NINTENDO WORLD opening in Universal Studios Japan, as well as the start of the Pokémon collaboration with the theme park since the long-term partnership with The Pokémon Company was recently announced.
However, as of today, Universal has publicly halted the parade.
This delay was revealed from the official Twitter account of Universal Studios Japan:
The “NO LIMIT! Parade”, which was being prepared for the opening in the fall of 2022, will be postponed to the opening in 2023 again due to various reasons. We will inform you about the opening time as soon as it is decided. (Translated)
