    After several delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it looks like the anticipated Mario-themed park at Universal Studios Japan, Super Nintendo World, will finally open its doors to the public next week. The official Nintendo Japan Twitter account made the announcement that the park will open on March 18:

    The tweet links to an official Universal Studios Japan press release that states that the number of visitors entering the area will be limited and that hygiene measures will be strengthened and wearing a mask will be mandatory.

    I'll take my kids there when Covid's behind us and air travel is possible again!
    Exciting but frustrating at the same time because it seems like air travel will take forever to recover.

    I'll go there when they are in Euro 3D Land. Can't travel half way across the 3D World.

    Not so soon I'm afraid. Construction has started but it's expected to open in 2025.

    The better question is, where's the Southern Hemisphere one?

    I'll wait for more parks to open up and then buy a pass for Super Nintendo All Stars + Super Nintendo World. Patient amusement parkers FTW.

    Anyway, this is opening a tad sooner than I expected. I was guessing they would try it around May, after more vaccines are rolled out. I guess they have to open up sometime though.

    I'm skipping this round. Leaks say Nintendo is already working on Super Nintendo Galaxy with improved visuals and better frame rate.

    Isn't this a bit early? I'm pretty sure this whole pandemic is still a bit too... Existent to open a theme park.
