Universal Parks News Today has shared a new video that offers our first-ever walk-through of the upcoming Super Nintendo World theme park.

What’s going on?

Universal Parks News Today shared a number of videos on YouTube that show off the park. One of those videos is a 12-minute walk-through of the park, displaying all the massive elements of the location.

  • You see locations like the entrance — which is similar to the tubes in Mario — as well as Bowser’s Castle and Yoshi’s Snack Island.
  • Aspects of the park resemble Disneyland, only they’re painted over with the design of the Super Mario video games. Take a look below.

When does the park open?

Universal Studios Japan announced back in November that Monday that the Super Nintendo World would open on Feb. 4, 2021, as I wrote about for the Deseret News. A video announcement about the opening date was made no longer public since the opening date has been changed.

But, more recently, the park announced there would be a delay due to the pandemic.

  • “After careful consideration of all aspects of the current situation, Universal Studios Japan is postponing the grand opening of its new ‘Super Nintendo World’ until after the state of emergency for Osaka prefecture, issued yesterday, is lifted,” the statement reads, per ComicBook.com. “Also during the state of emergency we will set additional capacity limitations in accordance with the government and the local authorities’ guidelines.”

According to The Verge, the original opening date announcement was announced earlier than expected. Nintendo originally suggested the project would be pushed back until the spring due to the coronavirus pandemic.

  • Leaked photos of the park popped up in 2019, according to a report from the Deseret News.
