New Images Show That Super Nintendo World Japan Is Almost Complete

So, it looks like work as almost finished on the Super Nintendo World theme park in Osaka, Japan. We know this because and intrepid, and most likely unauthorised, photographer has managed to get above for a decent look into the brand new attraction.

Loading…

Of course, we've had a couple of preliminary looks at it before, but this new snap offers the best look so far at what we can expect the finished park to look like.

There are already some features that will set any Nintendo enthusiast's pulse racing.

We've got Bowser's Castle over in one corner and Peach's Castle in the opposing one.

Then there are a load of clouds and warp pipes, as well as a few sandy pyramids to check out. There are also Yoshi and Mario Kart themed rides knocking around, too.

It doesn't take up a lot of space, but it seems as if they've crammed a lot of Nintendo-inspired fun into quite a small footprint.

The latest picture has made its way online after being shared first by Instagrammer imaiko02, then by the Themeparx website.

Somewhere along the line someone has managed to fly a drone up there to get this sneak park of the park, which was supposed to open in time for this summer's Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Well, either they've used a drone or they're just really tall.

To be fair, it might still open in time for the event, because it has now been shunted into next year - like just about everything else - as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Oh well, at least it looks as if it will be worth the wait.

The latest word from the park is - understandably - pretty vague. The team behind it have said they are 'carefully considering a reopening date while monitoring the current situation'.

There's good news for those who don't quite fancy the trip to Osaka, though. Universal has announced that they plan to bring similar Super Nintendo World attractions to their parks in Hollywood, Orlando and Singapore.

OK, that's still pretty far if you're in the UK, but at least you've got the choice.

The Florida version will be part of the new Epic Universe park, which is the fourth such park at the Universal Orlando Resort.

It will nestle in beside Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure and Volcano Bay, and is scheduled to open in 2023.

There's been no official confirmation, but it is thought that Universal will look to have its version of Super Nintendo World in the park by the time the ribbon is cut.
