With this pandemic that kept us indoors most of the time this year, many of us are just itching to travel once again. Now Nintendo fans have an even bigger reason to want to travel overseas because of the upcoming Super Nintendo World theme park!
This new zone at Universal Studios Japan will open on February 4, 2021. They are now teasing the Mario Kart rollercoaster housed in a life-sized Bowser’s Castle. Made interactive with AR headsets shaped like Mario’s iconic cap, this ride is also a competing game against other “players” on the same ride.
Bloomberg got a first peek at the Super Nintendo World and the Mario Kart rollercoaster. They also revealed an upcoming Donkey Kong attraction in the area.
