Kirby Super Star Gourmet Race – SNES
I’m personally not all that familiar with Kirby in relation to some of the other Nintendo properties, and still this music gets stuck in my head from time to time. He may not be as well known as Mario or Donkey Kong, but Kirby is certainly a popular character and his games definitely feature some memorable music.
Where it would fit: There have also been rumors of a Kirby-themed restaurant. This music would fit nicely in there with a title like “Gourmet Race.” Plus, a Kirby restaurant is kind of a brilliant move.
Super Smash Bros. Hyrule Castle – Nintendo 64
Again, I’ve chosen the “Super Smash Bros.” version of the main theme from pretty much all of the Zelda games, because it just feels a bit stronger than the original. This theme is one of the most iconic and well-recognized in all of video game music and it would be a shame if we didn’t hear it in the park. Now, it just needs a place to go.
Where it would fit: Rumor has it that there will also be a Hyrule section of the land. If this is true, I’m not sure what kind of attraction we would get, but a lot of people would sure be excited for it.
Mario Kart 64 Rainbow Road – Nintendo 64
And finally, if we’re going to get an attraction that brings a bunch of our favorite characters together, it’s going to be Mario Kart. And if we are going to get a Mario Kart attraction, it’s going to have to feature the course that is probably the most memorable and iconic: Rainbow Road. There are plenty of options to choose from in regard to Rainbow Road music, with the course being featured in every Mario Kart game ever made. This one is just a personal favorite.
Where it would fit: The Mario Kart attraction is rumored to transport guests to different courses throughout the ride. My guess is Rainbow Road will be the spectacularly colorful finish to this attraction.
The first edition of Super Nintendo World is not set to open until 2020 in Universal Studios Japan. Universal Studios Florida and Hollywood will get their versions of the new land after that. Unfortunately, that means we have quite a bit of time to wait for these new lands.
On the bright side, that gives us plenty of time to discuss and speculate as to what amazing Nintendo music we might hear. These are just a handful of my personal favorites that would fit perfectly with what we might be getting, but there are hundreds of other options out there. What Nintendo music would you like to hear in Super Nintendo World?
