Super Nintendo World Direct Will Look at the Attractions

People will get a chance to see Super Nintendo World safely on December 18, 2020. Nintendo announced a Super Nintendo World Direct. At 3pm PT/6pm ET, there will be a presentation focusing only on things people will get to see next year in this new area of the Universal Studios Japan park.

Nintendo already has the YouTube video link up, so people can set reminders to watch. The Super Nintendo World Direct will be 15 minutes long and only focus on that area’s highlights.


We already have some idea of what might be shown during the video. The official website for Super Mario World listed two attractions. One is a Mario Kart-themed ride called Mario Kart: Koopa’s Challenge, and the other will have you look for treasure with Captain Toad while riding in a Yoshi cart. People will also wear Power Up Bands and take part in different tasks and earn virtual coins and keys.

This comes ahead of the location’s debut. Initially, it was supposed to open in Summer 2020, but the launch was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. A Mario Cafe and Store did open in October 2020. 

Super Nintendo World will be a part of Universal Studios Japan in Osaka, Japan. It will open on February 4, 2021.
