Plus a first-look at the park's wristbands and how they work.

Nintendo has debuted a new music video from Charli XCX to show off Super Nintendo World, the upcoming theme park at Universal Studios Japan. The song, below, mixes in elements from the Super Mario soundtrack and shows attendees enjoying (and parkouring around) a CGI mock-up of the park's attractions.

The park is due to open during Japanese summer (from roughly June to September) 2020. It will open with two rides, but should grow from there, as Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge has.

The video shows no actual footage of the still-under-construction park, but captures the Nintendo spirit and aesthetic.

Bloomberg reporter Kurumi Mori tweeted details from a Universal Studios Japan presentation about Super Nintendo World, which showed off the park's "live video game" aspirations. Attendees will be able to take part in Mario Kart-like races, and compete to earn the most coins around the park thanks to "power up bands" that will sync with their phones. These bands can be seen around several wrists in the video above.

So far, there are no announced plans for Super Nintendo Worlds outside of Japan.
