Super Nintendo World will open its doors in Japan next spring – Engadget

Nintendo’s theme park was already supposed to be open ahead of the Tokyo Summer Olympics, but like the games themselves, that plan was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, Super Nintendo World is set to open in the spring of 2021, again just before the re-scheduled Olympics, the gaming company has announced (via The Verge).

Super Nintendo World will be a “life-size, living video game,” according to Nintendo, with “state-of-the-art rides, interactive areas, shops and restaurants, all featuring Nintendo’s most popular characters and games.” You’ll get a “power up band” park pass that will let you access various experiences and, via a smartphone, battle bosses and collect coins.
