Universal releases new image of Super Nintendo World

Universal Studios Japan in Osaka has released a new conceptual visual of its Super Nintendo World attraction, which is due to open next year, before the start of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in July.

Heralded as the world's first Nintendo-themed expansive entertainment area, the immersive and interactive park will make guests feel "as if they are playing inside their favourite Nintendo games" said Universal Studios.

Attractions will include Mario-Kart and Yoshi rides, Peach's Castle and Bowser's Castle. The multi-level world will also feature shops and a restaurant.

In September this year, Universal Parks & Resorts CEO Tom Williams revealed that guests at Super Nintendo World will use interactive wristbands that keep track of their scores on the rides, and interface with their game consoles.

Universal has promised that the Super Nintendo World experience will take theme park entertainment "to an entirely new level", and its expectations for the area are certainly ambitious, with the nationwide economic impact of the park forecast to be 11,700 billion yen (US$107.4bn, €97.5bn, £83.5bn) over the first 10 years, according to estimates by Kansai University.
