Super Nintendo World

We won’t have to wait much longer for the next big update on Super Nintendo World. As teased by Universal’s official Twitter account, news is expected to drop today / tomorrow.

An update is expected at the following times:

Construction continues on Super Nintendo World in Japan. The theme park is still coming together, and a couple of new photos show the latest progress.

We have a photo above that gives another look at the layout – and it appears that Yoshi is now on place. There’s also another picture below offering a zoomed-out view of construction.

The buildup to Super Nintendo World continues. Construction has been in full swing leading up to the opening in time for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, and some new art has now apparently surfaced.

Xtrend Nikkei first posted the image online as part of a general article about Super Nintendo World. The piece has not been confirmed as official, though it matches previously-leaked photographs of the park’s model.

A number of new elements are shown in the supposed piece of art. These include the actual ride vehicles for Yoshi’s Adventure, augmented reality binoculars, and more. Orlando ParkStop was kind enough to label all of the important aspects, which you can see above.

Universal Parks & Resorts chairman and CEO Tom Williams has revealed new details about Super Nintendo World.

Speaking with Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s Jessica Jean Reif Cohen, Williams confirmed that the first park in Japan is set to open next spring. Mario Kart and Yoshi rides will be featured in the first phase. There are other aspects to the park, including Peach’s Castle, restaurants, merchandise, and more.

Earlier today, the Unofficial Universal Orlando Podcast shared photos of what appear to be concept models for Super Nintendo World. They were apparently dated from 2016. Orlando ParkStop believes the photos are legitimate based on what it has heard of upcoming plans.

Here are some of the highlights from the photos:

Super Nintendo World is already set to have locations in the United States and Japan. Today, it was announced that the theme park will also be opening in Singapore down the road.

Resorts World Sentosa will extend Universal Studios Singapore with the Super Nintendo World attraction as part of a S$9 billion expansion. New experiences at RWS will open every year starting in 2020, lasting until 2025. However, it’s not currently clear when Super Nintendo World will open in Singapore.

Super Nintendo World is going to be a long-term project for Nintendo and Universal. Originally announced in 2015, the theme park is planned to be ready for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

While it may not show much, the first building for Super Nintendo World has gone up at Universal Studios Japan. Currently the entrance to the area is being worked. You can see a couple of photos below as well as a closer look at construction in the attached video.
