    Universal Studios Japan has been working on opening an exciting theme park for Nintendo fans, ever since December 2016. Now, that work is almost complete, as Super Nintendo World is set to open later this summer, in Japan. Currently, a "Global Kick Off Presentation" is being broadcast to media, offering new details about the park. One of the new pieces of information involves "Power Up Bands", which are wristbands that "will make you feel like a part of the game world", and will allow park-goers to compete with others by collecting digital coins. A mobile app will also be involved, and appears to include a rankings system, stamps, and an interactive map, as well.

    The briefing specifies exploration, challenge, and winning, and a slogan of "no limit!" which seems to indicate that Super Nintendo World will try to game-ify the theme park experience. Screenshots have been included, with details courtesy of Bloomberg JP. Nintendo of America also posted a trailer, which consists of a music video of fans running and dancing around multiple Mario-themed CGI setpieces. Super Nintendo World will open at Universal Studios Japan in summer 2020, with additional parks opening up at Universal Hollywood, Orlando, and Singapore later on.

    "music" video is a rather generous description.
    I'm not sure what the video is supposed to be for, it was completely fictional and uninformative. There was nothing to suggest it was about a theme park.

    The video seems to be marketing toward western consumers. Honestly 100 to 1 I bet if we gave my kid the choice between Mickey ears or Mario hats - my family would probably end up wearing the latter. The difference in price to travel there though is a different story. (I would assume anyway)

    EDIT:

    "with additional parks opening up at Universal Hollywood, Orlando, and Singapore later on."

    didn't read that at the end - kind of obvious that they would want to market it that way :P

    Never had a better time to drop it.

    Other than that, who guesses tickets will be in the multiple hundreds? Maybe a cool two G for puff-puff with Peach and Daisy? Ow8.

    Oh yeah, the lawsuit? Pretty ironic that they're best buds now.

    Well, I'm even more confused than before I saw the video. Is it like AR or VR? Or is everything just made out of foam? Is it a different park or part of the Universal park thingy? Why is a dude playing a switch in space? Do the magically formulating pipes appear in Antarctica? Does everyone get a Mario hat? Is it a seasonal thing? Is Charles Martinet gonna be there? Can I FINALLY ride a yoshi? Ahhhh Nintendo get your head in the game! Details! Details!

    ... I think the people in that video took too many mushrooms.

    If it's about a theme park, perhaps showing some rides would be interesting. This is like a video game trailer that just shows cutscenes: it looks all splashy, but you've got no idea what you'll get. ..

    The one thing I'm wondering, is it only Mario, or are other Nintendo franchises going to have representation?

    Maybe the worst trailer for anything I've ever seen in my life.

    Of course the park will be fun for kids, but this trailer...:hateit:

    Oh boy, the queues are going to be massive for at least a couple years. Let's hope they open the Singapore one soon so that the mainlanders don't crowd up the place too badly.

    Is it VR? From the video, it looks like VR. Is VR all the rage, nowadays? Because the video was kinda reckless, like the people standing near a carnivorous plant like that. Can we stomp Goombas and play ball with Chargin' Chuck in VR?

    It seems VR.

    I dislike VR.

    You like VR?

    Maybe it's the new Mario VR game.

    A VR spinoff.

    In VR...
