First Look At Super Nintendo World Set To Open On 4 February

Universal Studios Japan has announced its Super Nintendo Land will be opening on 4 February.

The eagerly anticipated Nintendo zone will be opening at the Osaka theme park in a little over two months - and ahead of its original planned opening of Spring 2021.

Announcing its planned opening, Universal Studios Japan said: "Team up with friends to battle rivals and power up. We are born to play! Immerse yourself with thrills the whole family can enjoy at SUPER NINTENDO WORLD.

One of the zone's highlight is set to be a Mario Kart themed rollercoaster which will send thrill seekers around Bowser's Castle and uses augmented reality and projection mapping technology.

You'll also get to wear a pretty cool helmet shaped like Mario's hat - what more could you ask for?

The Universal Studios Japan site tells visitors: "Race your way to victory! Iconic Mario Kart courses have been brought to life with cutting-edge technology.

"Challenge enemies with shells! Aim for the finish line with Mario and Peach! The world's first interactive Mario Kart theme park ride will leave you with a rush of adrenaline!"
