Get ready to immerse yourself in this interactive video game theme park by Nintendo!
“Rides, shops and restaurants, all featuring Nintendo’s most popular characters and games.”
Over the years, Nintendo has been one of the pioneers for gaming innovation as seen from their gadgets and games that we’ve come to love like Nintendo Switch, DS, Wii, Super Smash Bros, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and more. And it looks like they’re taking their creativity to a whole new level by introducing the Super Nintendo World Theme Park in partnership with Universal Studios Japan.
According to Nintendo, it will have two opening rides–one themed after Super Mario Kart, and another Omni-mover ride called Yoshi’s Adventures. Besides that, Super Nintendo World will also be having Nintendo-themed interactive areas, shops, and restaurants. Yes, you heard it right, folks. You can now live out your gaming dreams in this life-size video game amusement park soon to open in time for the 2020 Olympics held in Tokyo. Better make that booking now, eh?

And to hype things further, Nintendo released a music video collab with Galantis and Charli XCX showing what Super Nintendo World Theme Park would look like in CGI. With the theme, “We’re born to play,” we’re greeted by the iconic soundtrack of Super Mario remixed by Galantis and sung by Charlie XCX.

And if you look closely in the video above, park-goers have a magnetic wrist band on them. According to Bloomberg reporter Kurumi Mori, it acts as a tracker synced with an app for when attendees want to participate in Mario Kart-like races. And they will have to run around the park earning gold coins and compete with other players.
