Mario Kart Set To Be Brought To Life At Super Nintendo World Attraction

Mario Kart Set To Be Brought To Life At Super Nintendo World Attraction

It's tough to decide which Nintendo game I love the most: Goldeneye or Mario Kart.

For the category of best game to play with your mates, Mario Kart is the absolute clear frontrunner. Everyone had their favourite characters and wholeheartedly believed that theirs was secretly the fastest. I always picked Toad, cause, well...he was fast.

But imagine if you could play the game in real life. And I don't mean the cool version in Tokyo where you can roam the streets in character outfits and go-karts.

Nintendo recently revealed that it would be getting its own attraction, dubbed Super Nintendo World, attached to the Universal Studios in Osaka, Japan.

Now, a trademark has also been issued in the US, making it look likely that the Universal theme parks in Hollywood and Orlando could get the Mario upgrade too.

You will finally get to line up with your mates and throw bananas and blue shells of doom. Well, we actually have no idea how they'll incorporate the concept of weapons from the game. But time will tell.

But Mario Kart won't be the only inclusion in Super Nintendo World. Nintendo owns NES, Nintendo 64, Gamecube, Wii and the newly released Switch. So any of the massive games to have come from those consoles could be made into an attraction.

In a statement last year, Nintendo said: "Super Nintendo World will be comprised of expansive and multilevel environments filled with unprecedented state-of-the-art rides, interactive areas, shops and restaurants, all featuring Nintendo's most popular characters and games."

The Japanese theme park is expected to be ready by 2020 but it's not known when the American ones will be completed.
