Super Nintendo World just opened on February 4, 2021. That’s the good news. The bad news is that it’s only in Universal Studios Japan at the moment. Even without COVID-19 mucking things up, traveling all the way to Japan to visit a theme park is beyond the means of most people. Fortunately, Universal Parks News Today is here to give us a short guided tour to a place we in the USA will never see. At least, not for a long while yet.
It’s-a Me! Super Nintendo World!
You can tell that the designers went all out to make you feel like you’re actually in the Mushroom Kingdom. Everything from the spinning golden coins, to the animated Piranha Plants swaying around, to the animated Goombas going for a back and forth stroll just screams “Mario!”. Heck, the question mark boxes even light up and make sound effects when you hit them. In short, Super Nintendo World is every Nintendo fan’s dream.
It’s too bad that our virtual tour guide didn’t go into the exhibits (levels?) in Super Nintendo World. I wouldn’t have minded getting a look at the inside of Bowser’s castle, or finding out just what was in that that One-Up Factory. Even just a look at the inside of Kinopio’s Cafe (Toad’s Cafe for us Americans) would’ve been nice. Sadly, all those would’ve likely extended the time of that video considerably. It might’ve also spoiled the surprise for when/if they finally bring Super Nintendo World over here to the USA. We’ll just have to be content with this to keep the hype up.
Super Nintendo World looks like every Nintendo fan’s hopes and dreams packed together into one theme park. I’m not kidding, it really does look that good. I really hope Universal Studios does bring this to the USA, eventually. That said though, it’d probably take a while unless COVID-19 magically disappears on us.
