New images showing the construction of the Super Nintendo World theme park at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka have been published online.
Super Nintendo World will house a range of themed attractions, shops and restaurants. Universal Parks & Resorts CEO Tom Williams recently said it will initially include two rides, Super Mario Kart and Yoshi’s Adventures.

It will also feature an interactive element involving magnetic bracelets that guests can use to interact with the land’s environment.
Visitors will be able to track “scores” gained through interactions and rides, said Williams, and this scorekeeping will interface “with your game console so you can build on it and come back again”.
Following the Japan opening, Super Nintendo World is scheduled to come to Universal’s Orlando, Hollywood and Singapore parks, although a timeline for openings outside of Japan hasn’t been announced.
Nintendo Switch sales have surpassed 10 million units in Europe, the platform holder said this month.
