Nintendo fans assemble, the wait is finally over!
Nintendo has finally announced that it’s opening the first theme park, Super Nintendo World, in Osaka at Universal Studios Japan next spring.
It was originally intended to open prior to Tokyo's 2020 Summer Olympics, but it was delayed as well as the Games because of the pandemic.
Next week, Nintendo also has plans to open a separate themed cafe as well as a store at the Hollywood area of the Universal Studio Japan.
Check out, how it’s going to look like:
Mario and Luigi-themed cakes and pancakes will be served at the cafe. Also, there will be a tropical bottle with a Super Mushroom drink and moustachioed fruit cream sodas:
And yes, there will be Nintendo-themed goodies and stuff for sale too:
The store and cafe will be open for the public from 16th October.
Super Nintendo World is going to be Nintendo’s biggest stunt to license its IP beyond the consoles and screens. Visitors will have smart wristbands that connect with a mobile app so that they can participate in a coin-collecting metagame. The park will also have traditional attractions including the Mario Kart ride.
Nintendo also has plans to open similar themed-parks at the Hollywood, Orlando, and Singapore parks.
