Universal Studios Japan introduces Super Nintendo World
At 10:10 a.m. on June 8, 2017, Universal Studios Japan held a
groundbreaking ceremony for Super Nintendo World™, the world’s first*
Nintendo-themed expansive entertainment areas featuring Nintendo’s
legendary worlds and characters.
Super Nintendo World will present the exciting world of Nintendo, which
originated in Japan and is now hugely popular around the world – and
which is expected to boost the attendance of Universal Studios Japan in
the years to come. The more than 60 Billion Yen Project is set to open
in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
An all-new Mario Kart attraction will be part of Super Nintendo
World and will bring the hugely popular Nintendo game to life in a way
that takes theme park entertainment to an entirely new level and goes
beyond what Nintendo fans and theme park fans have ever seen.
Super Nintendo World will bring the fun of Nintendo games to life within
an expansive, highly themed environment. Guests will enter a world of
excitement where they will feel as if they are playing inside their
favorite Nintendo games. The creative visionaries behind Nintendo’s
legendary worlds and characters are working together with the creative
teams behind Universal’s blockbuster theme park attractions. Universal
Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood have also announced that
they will also feature Nintendo-themed areas in the future.

worlds at other parks and themed areas around the world.
