The official website for Super Nintendo World is now live and takes users on a tour of the park’s attractions.
If you want to visit the Super Nintendo World attraction at Universal Studios in Japan, your plans are most likely on hold due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19. Fortunately, the theme park’s official website – which launched yesterday – includes a spectacular overview of the site and its attractions. It’s beautifully executed and goes a little way to replicating a visit.
Scrolling through the website takes visitors on a virtual tour of Super Nintendo World’s main concourse, highlighting the location of the park’s two mains rides: Bowser’s Castle and Yoshi’s Adventure. It also takes you past the Kinopio’s Cafe eatery and the obligatory gift shop.
Other locations to look out for include a Mario Motors store and some intriguing tunnels. Visitors can collect virtual keys and coins as they explore the park by wearing an NFC wristband.
Last month, a collection of new images were released, and legendary Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto hosted a Super Nintendo World Direct showing the park from ground level.
Super Nintendo World opens on February 4 to limited numbers of guests to ensure social distancing.
