Nintendo has a storied and rich history both inside the video games industry as well as outside of it. With so many iconic characters and IP, it makes sense to expand beyond one medium. They have done just that with the Super Nintendo World theme park in Japan. Following that, the US is now getting its own Nintendo theme park.
Yesterday was the 10th of March, known by some as MAR10 day. As part of this annual celebration many of Nintendo's best Mario titles have been put on sale. Additionally, Nintendo offered an update on the US launch of its Super Nintendo World theme park, revealing that it is planned to open in Hollywood in 2023.
Making the announcement, the official Universal Studios Hollywood Twitter account said “#SuperNintendoWorld is opening in 2023 at Universal Studios Hollywood! Level up with exclusive merch at the Feature Presentation store, opening soon.”
As mentioned, a Japanese Super Nintendo World was opened back in February / March 2021 offering an AR Mario Kart game; a Yoshi themed ride, and a few other attractions. While not as big as some theme parks (especially as it is merely a section within Universal Studios parks), Super Nintendo World does offer a number of interesting rides with unique gimmicks. It will be interesting to see how big the US version of Super Nintendo World will be.
Currently, Super Nintendo World has been confirmed to be opening in two more locations: Universal Studios Singapore and Universal Studios Orlando. Hopefully these two follow shortly after the launch of the Hollywood branch.
