The best footage yet of the Super Nintendo World expansion at Universal Studios Japan has emerged online, unveiling a detailed look at attractions including Bowser’s Castle and Yoshi.
The opening of Super Nintendo World has reportedly been indefinitely postponed due to the coronavirus crisis, but it will be worth the wait.
The highly-anticipated attraction based on the Super Mario video game series was originally meant to open in spring 2020 to coincide with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The video was shared on Twitter by user @29QuP2. It unveils the newly constructed Super Nintendo World, including Bowser’s Castle, Yoshi, Goombas, Koopas, and Piranha Plants.

Super Nintendo World will also feature state-of-the-art Super Mario Kart and Yoshi’s Adventure rides, shops and a restaurant, and Peach’s Castle.
