It was also revealed that this area will be designed to look like a jungle. Themed food and drinks will be available in the new area, similar to the rest of Super Nintendo World. Consumers can currently purchase Mario, Peach, Luigi, and Bowser themed food and drinks through the park. Additionally, Universal Studios Japan has revealed that once the Donkey Kong area is complete, Super Nintendo World will be 1.7 times larger.

Super Nintendo World officially opened in March 2021 after facing numerous delays due to COVID-19. The park features various Mario themed attractions and currently has a website where people can view the attractions through a 3D tour. It also includes a list of stores and available food items consumers can purchase.

The Donkey Kong extension in Super Nintendo World will open sometime in 2024. More information regarding the attractions will arrive sometime in the future.
