Super Nintendo World Japan To Open in February 2021

Universal Studios Japan in Osaka has announced that they will open their US$580 million Super Nintendo World theme park on 4 February 2021.

Super Nintendo World will be built on the existing Universal Studios Japan site, featuring Nintendo’s most popular games with rides, shops and walk-through activities.

According to Bloomberg, one of the first attractions will be a Mario Kart ride inside a recreation of Bowser’s Castle. Inspired by the games, visitors can even collect virtual coins by wearing a dedicated wristband as they explore the area and interact with park features via a Nintendo Switch console.

It was originally slated to open in summer 2020 but was delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
