Today Universal Studios Japan announced the opening date of its new Super Nintendo World attraction.
The gates to the world of Mario will open on Thursday, February 4.
At a later date the park will reveal more info on how to apply for the preview event, which has not been detailed.
in the meanwhile, we get a trailer and some new images, which you can check out below.
The attraction was announced all the way back in 2016 and was supposed to open in time for the 2020 Olympics. Unfortunately, the COVID pandemic threw a wrench into Nintendo and Universal Studios Japan’s plans.
That being said, I guess they’re still making the deadline, considering that the Tokyo Olympic games have also been delayed to 2021.
Before you make travel plans (when Japan will reopen its borders at some point down the line), though, do keep in mind that Universal Studios Japan isn’t in Tokyo (as some erroneously believe). It’s in Osaka, which isn’t exactly around the corner from the Japanese capital. Tokyo is home to the two Disney parks named after the city, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea.
