Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan is to open in early 2021. The site will be the first theme park area in the world to be centred exclusively on the characters and worlds of Nintendo.

Super Nintendo World will be home to Mario Kart and Yoshi-themed rides and attractions. Visitors can immerse themselves in a colourful and interactive area, where they wear a wristband known as a Power Up Band. Armed with the wristband, guests can hit blocks, jump, collect virtual coins and more, in an interactive experience designed to bring Super Mario games to the real world.

The Hollywood Area of Universal Studios Japan will feature the world’s first Mario Café & Store. Diners can tuck into exclusive Mario-themed food, such as Super Mario pancake sandwiches washed down with cream sodas. Nintendo fans can also shop for merchandise in an immersive and authentic retail space, where they will find a full line-up of Mario merchandise featuring original designs from Universal Studios Japan.

An official date for the opening of Super Nintendo World has yet to be announced.
