Getting to immerse yourself into your favorite movies or TV shows are just one of the joys of being in an amusement park. Of course, those same parks continue to expand as more and more new content is released. But for Universal Studios, they are now venturing into something that requires a bit more interaction. The entertainment park has just announced that Super Nintendo World is scheduled to open in 2023 in the US.
And yes, it’s a very broad date, but we at least have an idea of when to mark out calendars so that we can hit question mark blocks, jump on koopas, or throw blue turtle shells. However, there is no official word yet on what guests will be able to do in this portion of the park. Though based on the Universal Studios Japan, we have an idea that it would be somewhat similar in entertainment.
Universal has expanded their brand with IPs like the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Which of course, featured plenty of breathtaking rollercoasters and tasty Butterbeer. So one could imagine what the this portion of the park would be like as it takes gameplay to a whole new level.
SUPER NINTENDO WORLD opened first at Universal Studios Japan to rave consumer and critical reviews in 2021. The U.S. debut of SUPER NINTENDO WORLD at Universal Studios Hollywood will transport theme park guests and Nintendo fans into the world of Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach to become part of their compelling universe.
SUPER NINTENDO WORLD was conceived in partnership with Nintendo and the visionaries at Universal Creative to deliver exhilarating entertainment with innovative technological achievements inspired by characters and video games that have appealed to generations of Nintendo fans for over 40 years.
The immersive land will be a visual spectacle of vibrant colors and architectural ingenuity located within a newly expanded area of the theme park, featuring a groundbreaking ride and interactive areas, to be enjoyed by the whole family. Themed shopping and dining will enhance the entire experience.
To mark the occasion as the countdown begins to the land’s exciting debut, Universal Studios Hollywood will unveil a takeover of its popular Feature Presentation retail store with SUPER NINTENDO WORLD theming, opening soon. Located just inside the theme park’s main entrance, guests will have a chance to share their excitement for the land’s 2023 arrival by gearing up with merchandise such as Mario and Luigi themed apparel and iconic character hats. A selection of plush characters, including Yoshi, Mario Bowser and Luigi in a variety of sizes, will also be among the many fun items available for purchase.
