While it was recently announced that the Orlando version of Super Nintendo World won’t open until 2025, Japan’s opening is right around the corner. Universal Studios Japan announced plans to kick off the festivities and open doors to the public on March 18, following a round of delays that postponed its initial plans for late July of 2020.
While the Greater Tokyo area recently extended its State of Emergency declaration, Osaka is among the prefectures in which the emergency measures were lifted on March 1. The first phase of Universal’s Super Nintendo World area will include rides based on Mario Kart and Yoshi, as well as the previously detailed interactive elements that let visitors earn points through wearable magnetic Powerup Bands.
If you missed it, we recently had the opportunity to check out Super Nintendo World early, so be sure to give the report a look if you haven’t.
