It’s been a long time coming but Super Nintendo World is almost here at Universal Studios Japan. The theme park, which as of right now is heavily themed to Super Mario, is scheduled to open at the Osaka location on February 4th, 2021.
The news comes alongside several new photos showcasing everything from an imposing Bowser statue to the Mario Kart ride itself.
There’s also a video clip which gets up close and personal with the new fixtures.
