Yah-Hoo!!!

Super Nintendo World will officially open its doors later this month. Announced way back in 2015, the park will finally open in just ten days and invite visitors within its walls for the first time. With floating golden coins, the mean grimace of nearby Goomba, and the life-sized statues of Bowser, it’s sure to be a hit.

Originally scheduled to open on the run-up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, the coronavirus pandemic resulted in several delays. However, players will now be able to transport themselves to the worlds of some of their favourite video game characters on March 18, 2021.

Back in December 2020, “Mario’s Dad” Shigeru Miyamoto gave Nintendo fans their first proper look that the park. Highlighting its impressive detail and interactive nature, Miyamoto revealed the wristbands that will allow players to collect digital coins during their visit. Nintendo also revealed a Mario Kart ride, which incorporates AR elements.

Of course, this comes as bittersweet news to those still under lockdown, making a trip to Osaka, Japan – where the park is based – impossible. However, with environments ripped straight from a Super Mario game, this gamer’s paradise certainly looks worth the wait.

Super Nintendo World promises to be a colourful, nostalgic, and fun family experience when it opens its doors on March 18. Hopefully, with the eventual easing of travel restrictions, gamers around the world will soon be able to visit the lands of everyone’s favourite plumber.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
