Back in April we reported that construction of Universal Studios Japan’s Super Nintendo World had begun. Now, a new photo from Twitter user @LCASTUDIOS_USJ show a much more familiar facade.

The green pipes and pirahna plants of the Mushroom Kingdom are present and correct, as well as the brick walls of the iconic Super Mario Bros. castles.

The Super Nintendo World attraction at Universal Studios Japan, which is situated in Osaka, will be opening to the public sometime before the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. It is also scheduled to pop up at the Orlando and Hollywood parks at a later time. We’ll be sure to bring more coverage as construction continues!

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
