Super Nintendo World Image Teases Mario Themed Construction in Japan, Planned to Arrive Spring 2020

Super Nintendo World is still under construction as shown in a new Tweet showing off a Mario themed section of the park.

Universal Studios Japan’s upcoming theme park, Super Nintendo World looks to be making progress in development as a new image on Twitter shows a part of the theme park with notable Mario references.

Back in 2016, Nintendo showed off concept art for Super Nintendo World, a Nintendo themed park that will be opening at Universal Studios Japan. The below Tweet specifies that this section of the park is being constructed behind the JAWS ride. It also shows off the Mario themed flag, the iconic question mark box, what looks like moving cloud platforms, and a POW block. All of this alongside the colorful and recognizable platforms the Mario games are known for.

This is, of course, only one of the various themed attractions that are heading to Universal Studios Japan. While we’re not in the loop on what else will be available at this specific park, this tease certainly looks exciting. I personally can’t wait to see what other classic references the Super Nintendo World theme park introduces.

The below video shows off the general idea and feel of the park, but around the 0:20 mark, we see Mario himself jumping up a platform incredibly similar to the images posted above on Twitter. As the camera cuts to a shot of Mario climbing the flag at the top of the platform, we get to see behind him, and perhaps this will be what will be available at the park itself.

Keep your eyes out for Peach’s Palace, a bunch of Piranha plants, themed buildings, and a castle.

The Tweet also confirms that Super Nintendo World should be opening in Spring 2020. If you’re concerned that you’ll have to get a flight over to Japan to experience it, back in 2016, Nintendo revealed plans to introduce Universal Studios theme parks around the world, including Orlando, Hollywood, and Osaka.
