Get A Peek Inside Super Nintendo World Theme Park With This Interactive Website
You may not be able to travel to Japan to go to the park itself, but this interactive site is the next best thing.
The Nintendo-focused theme park, Super Nintendo World, is opening soon at Universal Studios Japan. Ahead of that, Nintendo has released an interactive flythrough website for the park that lets you take a virtual trip through the attraction and get a glimpse at what's on offer.
Scroll through the interactive website and you'll find all manner of exciting attractions like real-life Mario Kart and what looks like a tea cups-style ride with Yoshi as the vehicle. Super Nintendo World also has various Mario-themed dining opportunities and merch stores, of course. Some of the food looks very delicious and unique, including a Mario burger and a tiramisu dessert made out of ? mark boxes from the Mario franchise. You can see some images in the gallery below.
Super Nintendo World opens at Universal Studios Japan on February 4. You must pre-book in advance to secure a ticket to the park, and you can do that at Universal's website.
Japan's borders are currently closed to tourists due to COVID-19, so this virtual flythrough website is going to have to suffice for now for those who live outside of Japan. Similar attractions are opening at Universal's parks in Florida and California, but they aren't ready yet.
Before this, Nintendo released a lengthy video showing Mario's creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, touring Super Nintendo World in Japan and talking about its various attractions. You can check out that video below.
Nintendo is currently riding high with the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo's latest data shows that more than 68 million Switch consoles have been sold, and this doesn't count holiday sales yet. Despite the launch of the newer PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, the Switch is expected to be the top-selling home console for 2020 and 2021.
