All the way back in 2015, Universal announced that it was teaming up with Nintendo to bring a Super Nintendo World to the theme parks. This land is set to be part of not only Universal Studios Japan, but also of both the Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood. All projects were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Super Nintendo World finally opened at Universal Studios Japan in March 2021.
Suer Nintendo World at the Universal Orlando Resort is going to be part of the massive Epic Universe expansion happening at the Florida theme park, but construction has not fully begun yet. However, things at Universal Studios Hollywood are moving along and rides are beginning to take shape at theNintendo World area of the theme park.
In an exciting new move, Universal Studios Hollywood has debuted some awesome new merchandise celebrating Mario, Yoshi, and other popular characters who are central to Super Nintendo. Universal Hollywood shared a couple of pictures of some of the merch on its Instagram page.
Wahoo! For a limited time, level up with exclusive SUPER NINTENDO WORLD merchandise to celebrate the land coming to Universal Studios Hollywood next! NOW AVAILABLE at the Universal Studio Store in the park!
Popular Instagrammer and YouTuber The Cali Bae/Five Fires shared even more pictures of all the merchandise available at the Universal Studios store inside the Southern California theme park.
WOW! Now available at Universal Studio Store when you walk into the theme park!
It is important to note that Universal stated in its Instagram post that all of the new merchandise will only be available for a limited time — although they gave no date for when the exciting new items will disappear.
No opening date for Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Hollywood has been announced at this time, but hopefully, all of this brand-new merchandise seems like the signal that an opening date announcement may not be too far away! No matter what, Universal is clearly finding a way to use this new merchandise to hype Guests for the land’s upcoming debut.
