Take a virtual visit to Universal Studios’ Super Nintendo World

The majority of us most likely won’t have the ability to take a trip to Japan for the opening of Universal Studios Japan’s Super Nintendo World, however there’s a 2nd alternative for taking a look at the amusement park: a digital walkthrough readily available on the Super Nintendo World site.

Sure, absolutely nothing will be as wonderful as the genuine thing, however the interactive map is our finest take a look at the park yet. On the website, visitors are able to fly through the park, checking out different rides, like the Mario Kart Koopa’s Challenge and a Yoshi ride, called Yoshi’s Adventure. Everything is rendered in 3D, with looks at the different interactive elements at the park down to the food and gift shops.

You can see a full overhead view on the map below.

Nintendo shared details on its food and shopping options last year, however there are plenty more photos available now, including this burger with a very cute Mario hat. There’s also a mushroom pizza bowl with a dough cap, and a Question Block tiramisu. It’s a theme park, so you can also expect souvenir popcorn buckets — both in Mario Kart and Superstar styles.

We’ve also got a great appearance at the Power Up Bands that will partner with a smartphone app. Naturally, they’re also very cute, and designed to collect points as players “play” their way though the park. Alongside these bands, visitors to the park will also be able to meet Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and toads — and according to the site, people with Power Up Bands may have “more fun.” I don’t know what that means, however I am thrilled to — one day — discover.

Till then, it’s simply me constantly scrolling through the digital walkthrough.
