A version of Super Nintendo World is coming to the U.S. sooner than you think! Universal has confirmed that all of its theme park resorts will be receiving a Super Nintendo World expansion. We have talked about the rapidly moving construction progress on Super Nintendo World in Universal Studios before, and today we have a video showing that the construction reached a BIG milestone!
While Universal has put the Epic Universe theme park project on hold indefinitely, a Super Nintendo World is still currently being build in Universal Studios Hollywood. If you’re a Nintendo fan, this means you won’t have to travel to Japan to see this exciting new theme park land.
Thanks to a YouTube video by park reporter Universal Core, who appears to have gotten this footage from Universal CityWalk Hollywood, an area of Universal Studios Hollywood in Los Angeles that is currently open while the theme park remains temporarily closed.
Take a look at the construction progress:
It is so exciting to see Super Nintendo World come to life at Universal Studios Hollywood! Universal has not yet revealed an opening date or estimated opening season for this new land. We would imagine that Universal would soon announce a time for the opening of the land now that such recognizable construction is visible to Guests from CityWalk, but they may be holding off due to the ongoing closure of the California theme park. We do know that Universal had made a lot of progress on the construction of the all-new VelociCoaster at Universal Orlando Resort before announcing the attraction. So, we will most likely be waiting a while for a date on this expansion.
Due to constraints on space at Universal Studios Hollywood, it is possible that this will be a condensed version of Super Nintendo World and only host the Mario Kart attraction, as the framework and large show building are clearly visible in the construction update video. It is unlikely for the new land to feature the Yoshi attraction. We will need to wait for Universal to give us more details on what to expect from the Super Nintendo area of the Hollywood theme park.
