When someone mentions Nintendo, what’s the first thing you think of? Mario in his blue overalls and red hat? Maybe it’s Kirby, Animal Crossing or your favorite Wii game. If your household is anything like mine, you have at least one person who plays Nintendo video games. If that’s the case, you are going to love this announcement! As they say, it’s a game changer (see what I did there?) Drum roll please . . . 

SUPER NINTENDO WORLD™, the innovative, immersive and highly-anticipated themed land, will open at Universal Studios Hollywood in 2023, and will be the first SUPER NINTENDO WORLD to debut in the United States. The immersive land will be a visual spectacle of vibrant colors and architectural ingenuity located within a newly expanded area of the theme park, featuring a groundbreaking ride and interactive areas, to be enjoyed by the whole family. Themed shopping and dining will enhance the entire experience.

As the countdown begins, Universal Studios Hollywood will unveil a takeover of its popular Feature Presentation retail store, which will be themed with SUPER NINTENDO WORLD decor and gear. At the store, guests will have a chance to buy their favorite merchandise such as Mario and Luigi themed apparel and iconic character hats. A selection of plush characters, including Yoshi, Mario, Bowser and Luigi in a variety of sizes, will also be among the many fun items available for purchase.

Here’s a fun fact about Nintendo – it was founded in 1889 (no, that’s not a typo), and originally produced handmade playing cards. Since then, the company, which is headquartered in Kyoto, Japan, has produced some of the most successful consoles and video games in the industry. SUPER NINTENDO WORLD will be a great celebration of all that Nintendo has become and I can’t wait to see what they do!
