VIDEO: Moving Coins, Shells, Mushrooms, Piranha Plants, and More Bring Super Nintendo World to Life at Universal Studios Japan

It’s-a me, Super Nintendo World!

We’ve been eagerly covering updates on the construction going on at Super Nintendo World in Universal Studios Japan as it continues leveling up. In one of the latest updates, we got to see Bowser’s Castle light up, question blocks glowing, and a Thwomp! We’ve even gotten to see Yoshi running around along the upper levels of the land. Now, we have an expansive view of the land, including moving coins, green Koopa shells, super mushrooms, Piranha Plants, and more coming to life at Super Nintendo World:

As you can see in the video, all of these elements move along an axis or within their designated spaces, offering the land a rich sense of kinetic energy.

The ¥60 billion ($559.5 million) expansion will feature an exciting and highly interactive environment where beloved experiences centered around the Super Mario characters will come to life. The land is expected to feature a Mario Kart E-ticket as well as a family-friendly Yoshi attraction.

Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan was initially slated for a Summer 2020 opening, ahead of the now-delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympics. But due to the park’s current recovery from its extended COVID-19 closure, Universal Studios Japan has decided that it’s in the interest of Guest safety to delay the opening. No new target date was given.
