Last night, we broke the news that Universal Studios Japan posted a new video highlighting what to expect from the forthcoming Super Nintendo World, which is currently in production and set to open sometime in 2020, before the Olympic Games take place in Tokyo. Today, the video fun continued, as the studio posted a new video, this time showcasing the groundbreaking of production on the fun new addition to the park.
In the video, which was posted on Twitter, we see a dude in a Mario costume running across a world similar to that within the game, where he takes the time to jump over Goombas, hit blocks to bring up coins, and eventually come to a stop right in front of the Super Nintendo World stand. It's here that three Nintendo executives come out to discuss the groundbreaking of the exhibit – including Mario creator himself, Shigeru Miyamoto!
Miyamoto discussed the exhibit, noting, "Here, Nintendo games will come to life. Guests will be able to enter a world of excitement where they will feel as if they are playing inside Nintendo video games.
"We have been collaborating on many ideas for the world. I am very excited to step into Super Nintendo World and experience its immersiveness. We hope you look forward to it."
The group then counted down and did a victory pose to commerce the building of Super Nintendo World, which is sure to get fans very excited for what's to come.
We've noted in our previous story that Super Nintendo World will feature a number of cool items, like a Mario Kart competitive ride, as well as castles that can be explored (including Princess Peach's and Bowser's), as well as shops, restaurants and other interactive areas. More than likely, Nintendo will also have a few game systems on hand, in case video gamers are feeling a little homesick.
Look for more details on Super Nintendo World's production over the next few months. And don't be surprised if we begin making travel plans to Japan for 2020. For work research, of course…
