Universal Studios Japan seems to have been recently completed (albeit closed indefinitely due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation), and the rolling green hills of its Mario backdrop bear a striking similarity to a new facade delivered to Universal Studios in Hollywood — suggesting, if not outright revealing, that a Nintendo park is being built in Southern California as well.



Universal Studios Hollywood hasn’t officially announced the construction or planning of a Super Nintendo World at their park, but that’s in line with the company’s modus operandi as of late — they rarely announce new features or attractions until they’re ready, and building seems to be moving forward. Construction could actually be caught by the Transformers: The Ride 3D lot back in March before the park closed, so this is just extra confirmation.

Given the ongoing global pandemic, it’s unclear when Universal Hollywood will have its Super Nintendo World parks open to the public, although construction for it appears to be continuing unabated by COVID-19. Universal Orlando announced earlier this month that their own version of Super Nintendo World (as part of a new Epic Universe theme park) is currently delayed indefinitely due to the pandemic. Stay wired for more info from the parks and their construction coming soon.
