Nintendo officially announced the news related to the opening of their first theme park area, we will finally get to visit Super Nintendo World in spring 2021!
Nintendo’s theme park was supposed to be open this year at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka, ahead of the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Still, the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic forced them to move the grand opening to the next year. After all, Olympic Games were also postponed for summer 2021, so you will have the chance to visit Japan next summer and enjoy the most prestigious sports events and competitions in Tokyo, together with having a wild fund in this long-expected theme park.
Super Nintendo World will be in Osaka
Nintendo announced that their Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka will be a “living video game with state-of-the-art rides, interactive areas, shops restaurants and all will be featuring Nintendo’s most popular characters and games”. The visitors will use smart wristbands that could be paired with a mobile app, and they will be able to participate in the virtual coin-collecting game and battle bosses.
Nintendo and Universal Studios already revealed some of the rides that fans can expect to see in Osaka:
- Incredibly realistic Mario Kart (well, we certainly expected that, didn’t we)
- Traveling through Mario’s world riding on the dinosaur Yoshi’s back
- Many adventures around the park using the smart wristbands
- Punchable question-mark blocks
