Super Nintendo World Will Have Moving Coins and a Walking Yoshi

With the reopening of Universal Studios Japan, new videos and pictures of the upcoming Super Nintendo World area that is still being built have come out. They reveal that several of the Mario level backdrop parts will move, including Yoshi and the coins. [Thanks, HappyYell on Youtube!]

Check out the backdrop in motion below:

The back of the Super Nintendo World area is meant to simulate a Mario level similar to those in Super Mario 3D Land and Super Mario 3D World, with a flagpole on the top of the hill. Apart from Yoshi, the coins also spin like they would in those games, and it seems that the clouds will move back and forth. It’s also possible that the Koopa Troopa and Goomba will move like Yoshi does.

The entire area is themed after three areas of the Mario franchise–Princess Peach’s Castle, Bowser’s Castle, and a Mario stage. It’ll house two attractions at first, based on Mario Kart and Yoshi, before expanding to portray other Nintendo franchises. After this area opens in Universal Studios Japan, the next park to open up a Super Nintendo World area will be Universal’s Epic Universe in Orlando.
