Super Nintendo Land, Mario's thematic expansion for Universal Studios, is emerging as one of the most interesting and infused theme park theme attractions to date.
The park, which will be launched before the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as part of Universal Studios Japan in the city of Osaka, will feature portable wristbands called "Power Up Bands" that will sync with a smartphone app and track digital activities while you walk, according to Tokyo based Bloomberg Kurumi Mori reporter, which attended a press event on Tuesday local time detailing new elements of Super Nintendo World.
According to Mori, the bands will allow guests to collect digital coins and compete against other park goers. Thierry Coup, the creative director of Universal Creative (the design and research and development division of theme parks at Universal Parks & Resorts), made the series of announcements at the park's worldwide launch celebration, where he called Super Nintendo World "a life size ". videogame."
The mobile application will have a map above the game style to find attractions, and you can create a profile and unlock achievements. Currently not clear why I would collect these digital currencies beyond bragging rights, but you can imagine some kind of prizes to win, such as memories of Mario or other rewards with Nintendo themes. It could also be some kind of interactive component for games or games that you can play in the park.
According to Coup, Osaka will get the first Super Nintendo Land, followed by the Universal Parks complementary sites in the US. UU., In Hollywood, California and Orlando, Florida, as well as in Singapore. There is still no concrete calendar on when the park will arrive in the United States. We don't know much more about the expansion, besides the confirmation that there will indeed be a real world Mario Kart ride, because how could I open a Super Nintendo World without one of those?
While we wait for more information, enjoy this incredible CGI breakthrough that has kept us wanting to know more about Super Nintendo World for the past two and a half years.
