Universal Studios has just announced Super Nintendo World, a uniquely Nintendo themed attraction which is on course to arrive at Universal Studios Japan in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Two other Super Nintendo Worlds have already been confirmed for Orlando and Hollywood. Super Nintendo World will consist of “expansive and multilevel environments” starring state of the art rides, interactive areas, shops, and restaurants, all featuring Nintendo’s most beloved characters.
The projected development cost is expected to exceed 50 billion Yen, and will primarily be developed using the existing parking area as well as an area specially dedicated to the project. Just over a week ago, Nintendo posted a YouTube video with Representative Director of Nintendo Shigeru Miyamoto and Mark Woodbury of Universal Creative sharing their views on the project launch:
“We are constantly amazed at how the park developers are bringing the essence of our games to life in the real world. Together we are building it with an eye for what guests will actually experience…We are working very hard to create attractions that can be equally enjoyable to anybody regardless of age.”
Super Nintendo World will feature characters, themes and worlds from the Super Mario series, all recreated with the utmost precision and quality to allow guests to fully immerse themselves in a multisensory Nintendo experience.
