The most awaited theme park is coming to life as we expect it to open next year, February 4.
Super Nintendo World is about to be opened to the world by next year on the 4th of February 2021. This will be located at Osaka, Japan theme park on that date, which is also quite earlier than expected. The company is aiming to open during the spring of the year.
Super Nintendo World: Here’s what to expect
There will be a lot of excitement that awaits Nintendo fans all over the world. One of those things will be the themed cafe and merchandise where you can buy Super Mario items and souvenirs. Aside from this, they have explicitly announced the upcoming Mario Kart-themed rollercoaster, which can be found inside a reconstructed Bowser’s castle. This is by using AR and projection mapping technology that is just like the Mario Cap.
According to Bloomberg sources, Super Nintendo World noted that they set the park to be further expanded with a Donkey Kong-themed area:

Currently, Nintendo is working with health administration officials to secure the safety and health of the consumers as the pandemic is still unleashed. It has been noted that they will only give 50% capacity to the theme park as of the moment. The country also has avoided the lockdown unlike other Asian countries and only relying upon mask-wearing and contact tracing.
The Nintendo firm based in Kyoto has said that their operating profit from the first half of the year of fiscality, which ended last September, has soared to as high as 209% to 291.4 billion yen ($2.8 billion) in comparison with the same period in the preceding year. Sales have risen up by about 73% to 769.5 billion yen ($7.4 billion), according to CNN.
This success has presented how, even months within the pandemic, people still have been demanding countless more Switch game consoles in packs. Nintendo has sold around 12.5 million of these devices starting from April all the way to September, with an increase of 81% compared to the preceding year.
“The strong momentum of selling has been going on even after the season of summer sales.” This has been noted by Nintendo in a presentation for investors.
