Super Nintendo World Japan Progress
Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan is set to open Fall 2020, and new footage has surfaced showing that construction is almost complete. Simply put, it looks like a video game come to life, with two attractions confirmed so far, a Yoshi-themed ride and then an indoor Mario Kart dark ride of sorts. Read more for a video and additional information.

The grand opening was initially planned for completion in time for the 2020 Summer Olympics, before that was delayed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Japan. Fortunately, it was all worth the wait, as no detail was spared, and the land includes spinning turtle shells, coin boxes, Bowser’s castle, as well as plenty of trees. So far, Universal has confirmed that a Super Nintendo World themed area is coming to the Epic Universe park for Universal Orlando Resort.
