If you are one of those gamers who like to plan ahead then get your planner out right now as it looks like Super Nintendo World will be coming at us sometime before the Summer of 2020. At least to the Universal Parks in Japan as it has been announced that the aim is to get the addition built, staffed, and open before the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Only a short three to four year wait and such but it's still better than just saying "it's coming" over and over. Especially for all of those huge into Nintendo who want to head to the park and experience it all sooner rather than later. Now you will have your chance so get booking now as I'm guessing that is going to be one crazy month out there in Japan given that this is not the only major thing going on for the Summer.
To go along with this announced, we also have a bit of concept art on what the developers out there are looking to bring to the park itself. At least in terms of Super Mario as that is all that is shown here even though it is claimed to be a Super Nintendo World and not just a Super Mario World. Although I going to guess that other classic franchise will be thrown into the sides of restaurants, shops, and possibly shows with the Mario brothers getting all the solid rides and attractions. I mean, Mario Kart just seems like it would be a no brainer here although we can hope for a Donkey Kong Country mine cart roller coaster of sort can't we? It makes just about as much sense as well. So would a nice horror attraction featuring Metroid but I'm not the one making the plans here.
Here's the most recent update on what is going on with Super Nintendo World for you to look at though. The bulk of it all goes into number of jobs being created and the fact that they are looking to drop about $450 million USD for this addition into the Universal Park here. I know I'd be looking at a fun way to bring in an obstacle course that plays out like a version of Zelda or even Super Mario if I was in charge of Super Nintendo World but for now I'll hope they see my words on this little site. Gamers know what they want sometimes…
Super Nintendo World is coming to Universal Studios Japan and will be the first such opening in the world, featuring globally renowned characters and game worlds from Nintendo. Super Nintendo World is targeted to open in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
