Super Nintendo World Will Be Opening in Japan in 2021
A Mario-themed café will be arriving next week to get fans excited.
Initially scheduled to open alongside the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Nintendo‘s theme park was inevitably pushed back due to the ongoing pandemic. Now, the gaming company has announced that Super Nintendo World will be ready to accept visitors in Spring 2021 just ahead of the rescheduled Games.
According to the company, the upcoming park will be a “life-size, living video game” and will feature “state-of-the-art rides, interactive areas, shops and restaurants, all featuring Nintendo’s most popular characters and games,” Engadget reports. Visitors will be able to enjoy the new landmark with a park pass and collect coins through an accompanying smartphone app.
Ahead of Super Nintendo World, Universal Studios Japan is set to open a Super Mario-themed café on October 16. The location will be offering branded food and merch for Mario fans, including Luigi hat-shaped pancake sandwiches, a super mushroom drink, tees, pouches and more.
