Universal Studios Japan is all set to hold the grand opening of the first Super Nintendo World on February 4. The location will bring to life a highly themed and immersive land featuring legendary worlds, characters and adventures where guests will be able to play inside their favourite Nintendo games. The grand opening of Super Nintendo World will mark the beginning off a year-long twentieth anniversary celebration.
The attraction will feature Mario Kart- and Yoshi-themed rides, as well as restaurants, shops and other experiences that can only be found at Universal Studios Japan. The colourful and interactive area will offer a new theme park experience that will allow guests to immerse themselves in the world by wearing a Power-Up Band, a technology to help bring gameplay to life and allow guests to keep score.
Guests with a Power-Up Band will also be allowed to collect virtual coins and more to bring the experience of playing Super Mario games to the real world. Thomas Geraghty, Director, Innovation and Global Executive Producer, Mario Kart said in a statement that Universal Creative has partnered with Nintendo to bring a real-life racing adventure to Universal Studios Japan with Mario Kart: Koopa’s Challenge that will take guests through the Mario Kart universe to experience never-ending excitement and thrills.
