Universal Studios Japan’s Super Nintendo World area officially opened in March 2021. The park initially planned to open the area at the end of July 2020, in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, but delayed the opening to prevent large gatherings, as a response to Covid-19. According to NHK, the park has invested more than 6 billion yen (about 56 million USD) in the new area to increase the number of visitors to a record level. Construction began in 2017.
The first phase of the Super Nintendo World zone has opened with two games titled “Mario Kart: Koopa’s Challenge” and “Yoshi’s Adventure”. Visitors to the attractions are given Magnetic Power-ups that allow visitors to interact with the attractions, such as touching the”? Block” in real life. The wristbands can track scores (including park-wide leaderboards), coins, and stars from various games, and they can interact with the “game console.”
The effort is part of a larger Nintendo-themed initiative that Universal is adding to its theme parks.
Super Nintendo World opened at the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park in February. Attractions include Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge, Toadstool Cafe, 1-Up Factory, character meet and greets, and features interact using the Power-Up Band.
Universal Studios’ Epic Universal theme park in Orlando is expected to open in early 2025. Epic Universal is expected to include Super Nintendo World.
