This is in 2017 that the Super Nintendo World amusement park bearing the image of Super Mario is officialized by Nintendo. After more than three years of work, waiting, teasing, it’s official. Super Nintendo World is ready and it will open on February 4, 2021 in Japan. At the start of the year, we learned that Nintendo’s idea was to offer this park, a real living video game, life-size.
This summer, despite the health crisis which made the work and progress of the project quite delicate, Nintendo unveiled a first video to discover a glimpse of this amusement park which promises to be truly incredible. Today, it’s official, the Kyoto firm announces in partnership with Universal Studios Japan that the park will open in Osaka (Japan) on February 4, 2021. The opening of the park was originally scheduled for June 2020.
Super Nintendo World in 2021
Present directly in the Universal Studios Japan park, this extension will have cost the tidy sum of 484.5 million euros. It is a world allowing to discover a large part of the heroes of the Nintendo universe. New photos have been uploaded by The Sankei News site allowing us to have an aerial view of the park.
We can discover Princess Peach’s castle, Bowser’s castle, Toad’s mushroom house. A “Mario Motors” garage, with a multitude of references to the Mario universe. Carnivorous plants, mythical trees, the famous Goomba (small brown mushrooms), in short, a fabulous tribute.
Among the attractions, we learn that the park will offer an augmented reality course. The peculiarity of the latter is that players will have to use their Nintendo Switch to complete this course and collect the famous coins by visiting the different parts of the park. Of course, just like in the real Super Mario Bros. game, players who make it to the end of the course with all the coins will earn bonuses!
But the most incredible of this amusement park will be the Mario Kart rollercoaster. A brand new circuit designed for the park which will make you pilot in Bowser’s castle using a VR headset for better immersion. Suffice to say that it really makes you want!
