Super Nintendo World revealed for Universal Studios Japan, new artwork shows Mario’s Mushroom Kingdom come to life

in Entertainment, Theme Parks, Universal Studios Japan

Just two weeks after Universal Studios announced the worlds of Nintendo will be coming to theme parks worldwide, even more details have emerged regarding this groundbreaking partnership.

Super Nintendo World is the name of the themed area that will first open at Universal Studios Japan, announced to debut by summer 2020 in time for the Tokyo Olympics. It will later be followed by more Nintendo attractions to open at Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood.

According to a Universal press release, Super Nintendo World will feature “state-of-the-art rides, interactive areas, shops and restaurants, all featuring Nintendo’s most popular characters and games.”

The massive area will cost more than $430 million dollars to build in Japan.

Concept art for Japan features the Mushroom Kingdom of the Super Mario Bros series. Seen in the artwork are Princess Peach, Toad, Yoshi, green pipes, mountains, Thwomps, question blocks, and even Bowser’s Castle.




The area is being developed mainly using the park’s current parking area and part of an area designated for future expansion.

    Oh wow! This so exciting! It’s like all of the Nintendo fans’ dreams come true! I can’t wait to see those anime characters right of they come to Orlando and Hollywood after the land debut at Japan!

    I’m just annoyed that it’s less ‘Nintendo World’ and more ‘Mario World’. It may make me a heretic, but I’ve never liked Mario and have no vested interest in any of the games. There’s a LOT more to Nintendo than Mario (Zelda anyone?) and it’s just disappointing to hear ‘Nintendo’ and find out it’s just one specific title that’s being pursued (especially when it’s one you don’t care about).
