Gaming enthusiasts, rejoice. Universal Studios Japan is opening its very own Super Nintendo World right before the 2020 Summer Olympics in Osaka.
The company gave an inside look at the upcoming theme park in a new website and promotional video featuring a new track by Swedish duo Galantis and singer Charli XCX called We Are Born To Play.
Universal Studios Japan explains that the theme park will “blend the physical world with the world of the video game,” allowing visitors to feel like they are actually “playing inside their favorite Nintendo video games.”
According to its press release, visitors will be given wearable “power-up bands” to participate in the virtual experience inspired by Mario’s Mushroom Kingdom Universe. The interactive accessories let fans collect digital coins similarly to the way Mario does in the games.
Have a look at the teaser video for Super Nintendo World below.
