Super Nintendo World Opens in 2020 at Universal Studios Japan

Universal Studios Japan has announced that the anticipated “Super Nintendo World” aims to open before the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. There’s no official date yet. “Super Nintendo World” is the world’s first area based on beloved Nintendo characters.

Super Nintendo World Opens with 2 Attractions

Peach’s Castle and Bowser’s Castle are two icons that’ll appear in the area alongside two attractions. Yoshi and Mario Kart attractions will open with Super Nintendo World using the world’s latest technology. There are also restaurants and shops for guests to enjoy.

There’s not much more information shared about what these attractions are specifically. Either way, this is incredibly exciting and this beloved franchise will without a doubt draw even more crowds to Universal Studios Japan in Osaka.

Universal Studios Japan was the 5th most attended theme park in the world in 2018, which makes it the most visited Universal Park in the world.

I expect the crowds for the opening of this new area to reach park capacity, especially since it looks like it’ll open in the summer.

Are You Excited!?

I’m a massive Nintendo Fan and I’m quite looking forward to the opening of Super Nintendo World. I have no idea what to expect (except large crowds) but that makes it all the more exciting when we finally get to step foot into a world that so many of us grew up with.

My fondest memories are having my father wake me up asking me to play Super Mario Bros. with him on my NES when I was 5-years-old. This touches on nostalgia heavily and I’m OK with that. With such a global brand, it’s about time something like this was done. I’m optimistic that it’ll be excellent.
