World’s first Super Nintendo World is launching at Universal Studios Japan in 2021

The world’s first Super Nintendo World, a ‘spectacular area themed around Nintendo’s characters and universes,’ is scheduled to open at Universal Studios Japan in spring 2021. The new area will bring with it themed attractions, restaurants, shops, and other initiatives such as the ‘asobi experience’.

In anticipation of the new zone and its big launch in 2021, a Mario Cafe and Store will open at the theme park’s Hollywood Area, separate from the Super Nintendo World next week. The Mario Cafe and Store will bring together restaurants and retail stores scattered around the world of Mario.

Mario and Luigi’s iconic green and red caps will stand as monuments to the characters over the doors of the new cafe and store, wall decorations will take inspiration from the legacy of the gaming franchise, while tables will be themed around the mushrooms abundant in the world of Mario.

Meanwhile a selection of themed foods, such as the “pancake sandwich” and “fruit cream soda” inspired by Mario and Luigi hats, as well as soft drinks in a special “Super Mushroom Drink Bottle” will be available to visitors. Merchandise such as Mario and Luigi caps and Princess Peach crowns will be available to visitors ahead of the Super Nintendo World’s opening next year.

Nintendo has stated it will be offering up more information on the Super Nintendo World in the coming weeks and months.
