New video footage has emerged of Super Nintendo World California and the progress being made on its construction.
While Super Nintendo World in Japan finally got to open its gates earlier this year, the Universal Studios attraction won’t be coming to California for a while yet. However, thanks to the YouTube channel, Jsland, we now have a visual construction update that shows us the park’s outline.
The video doesn’t have much to offer in terms of actual Nintendo content. However, the footage does give us a glimpse of the park’s framework and structure. The construction site also features some rolling hill backdrops, which are made up of bricked tiles. The entrance also appears to comprise of a massive archway and a warp pipe, which serves as the main gate into Super Nintendo World.
California’s take on Super Nintendo World might differ slightly from its Japanese counterpart. However, the park could feature many of the same attractions, including a Mario Kart AR track, a Yoshi themed ride and various themed restaurants and eateries. It’ll be interesting to see if Super Nintendo World California gets any additional attractions, as most of the Japanese park is dominated by the Super Mario franchise (seriously, I keep accidentally calling it Super Mario World).
Recently, we learned that Universal Orlando’s take on Super Nintendo World is set to open in 2025. The California version of the Mushroom Kingdom has yet to be given an official opening date, but it looks like steady progress is being made.
As the world’s pandemic situation begins to ease, we might see both Orlando and California’s progress with the attraction increase, meaning we could be visiting Mario and his pals sooner than you’d think.
If you can’t wait to step foot in the Mushroom Kingdom, you can always visit the Super Nintendo World site for a virtual tour!
