Universal Studios Japan Super Nintendo World first look long video

It’s been a long road for Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan, from announcement to construction to recent opening delay. But fans have been salivating over every detail, every step of the way, because the ability to walk around in Mario and co.’s world is something we’ve all always wanted. And while that wait may continue, an extraordinary new video has emerged showcasing much of the park from a distance, with all of its dynamic parts in action. Turtle shells go gliding. Coins go for a spin. Piranha Plant dances along in its pipe. Bowser’s Castle is large and in charge! It’s all there, and it’s all beautiful.

Have a look at what Super Nintendo World has become!

It genuinely looks like they just transposed the Super Mario games into real life at Universal Studios Japan. The attention to detail is really delightful. We can only assume other Universal Studios parks will offer a similar degree of fidelity when Super Nintendo World arrives at those locations.

This Tokyo location was supposed to open this year in time for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, but the Olympics was delayed due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The opening of Super Nintendo World itself was subsequently delayed. But it’ll all be worth the wait in the end! Make sure to show this to all your friends — to show them what a better world looks like.
