Recreating an 80s fever dream.
Universal Studio’s collaboration with Nintendo on a new Mario-themed play area is almost done, and we have the pics to prove it.
A Japanese photographer captured a shot of the park during its construction and posted it on his Instagram (imaiko02).
Can you spot the iconic World 1-1 stage bits? And the pyramids from Super Mario 3? And Princess Peach’s castle at the east and Bowser’s Fortress at the southwest? Japan’s Nintendo fans are going to be very happy campers when it’s ready for the public.
This section of the park was set to open in Summer 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, its current status is “TBA”.
