Super Nintendo World

Super Nintendo World is looking like it will be an awesome nostalgic theme park. But fans looking forward to the attraction’s unveiling at Universal Studios Japan are in for a bit of bad news. Originally set to open this summer in time for the 2020 Olympics, the park’s launch has been delayed due to the ongoing pandemic.

We’re going to have to wait to explore Super Nintendo World in its entirety

Universal Studios Japan provided an update today confirming the attraction will not make its summer debut. It MAY open in the fall if the virus diminishes. The worst-case scenario is Super Nintendo World misses any 2020 launch window altogether and opens in 2021.

The good news is the area is looking like it is close to completion. For instance, we have confirmation of spinning coins and Yoshi chilling with some Goombas. Now, all we need are floating feathers that transform customers into flying Italian plumbers with capes. A man can dream, right?

Enthusiasts, are you even remotely surprised Super Nintendo World isn’t being unveiled this summer? What attractions are you hoping to see added to the setpiece? Let us know your answers to these questions in the comment field down below.
