There had previously been ecstatic excitement over Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios in Japan. Now we finally get to be excited about getting our very own park here in the U.S.! While a specific date wasn’t announced, we are very excited to anticipate the park opening next year. The Universal Studios Hollywood land will feature one ride and several interactive areas, in addition to themed shopping and dining options. Universal has not disclosed the size of the expansion but said the site will be in the lower lot of the park, replacing several soundstages. The project follows a similar expansion completed last year at Universal Studios Japan.
Nintendo and Universal first announced their partnership back in May of 2015. Construction on the park began at Universal Studios Japan in June 2017, and they opened Super Nintendo World in March 2021, after several delays due to the pandemic. Many Universal Orlando fans are hopeful that Super Nintendo World will also be coming to Florida at some point. We are hopeful that Universal will make that announcement in the near future! However, it could depend on the success of Universal Hollywood. We will, of course, report back once Universal announces the opening date for Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Hollywood!
