As expected, Nintendo has released a video showing the upcoming Super Nintendo World theme park at Universal Studios Japan. The new attraction will open its doors to the public on February 4, offering fans access to what Nintendo describes as a ‘highly themed and interactive’ park with games and adventures.
Nintendo revealed earlier this week that it will be opening a special Super Nintendo World Direct theme park on Friday, and that time has finally come. Late yesterday, the company showed off the new destination in a live stream, giving the public their first major look at the project.
As we planned, the new theme park is built according to Nintendo’s greatest characters and destinations, with Mario in front and middle. There was a massive amount of innovation in the Super Nintendo Universe, including the construction of a giant green warp tunnel that would take visitors to the lobby of Peach’s Castle.
The business has re-created locations from its Super Mario series to the smallest details, including artwork that transforms into different images and music. Guests will also experience Mt. Beanpole with a flag on the bottom, a Goombas tower, Yoshi shifting around the level, spinning coins, and other aspects of the Mushroom Kingdom.
Of course, concerns remain about the launch—namely, that Nintendo is continuing with the grand opening on 4 February, which means that it will have to deal with the pandemic and related issues. It is uncertain what precautions will be taken to help keep everyone safe and how many people will be willing to visit a theme park before the vaccine is available.
