Recently, Jim Shull, the CEO of NBCUniversal, said that Super Nintendo World will be the “cornerstone” attraction for Universal theme parks around the world.

We know that Super Nintendo World expansions are coming to Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Studios Singapore, and Universal’s yet to be built Epic Universe at Universal Orlando Resort. These locations are of course in addition to Universal Studios Japan, which is home to the first Super Nintendo World.

You can see how quickly progress is moving on Super Nintendo World on the lower lot of Universal Studios Hollywood. All of the photos were taken today, June 15, 2021. You can see how big a footprint this will make on Universal Studios Hollywood when it opens!

Universal has yet to set an opening date for this Super Nintendo World expansion, but construction is moving quickly. Our best guess? The land could open in the spring of 2022 if construction keeps up this steady pace. But that is our own speculation. What do you think?

You can see a lot of the exterior structures and iconic green mountains beginning to take shape. As with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter lands that have come to Universal theme parks around the world, we anticipate this land to be nearly identical to its Universal Studios Japan theme park — but it could be missing one attraction.

The Mario Kart attraction is highly anticipated and will likely appear in each Super Nintendo World expansion, much like Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey does inside the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
