First Concept-Arts for Universal Studios Japan Super Nintendo World Attractions !

We have to wait until 2020 for the grand opening at Universal Studios Japan of the awaited Super Nintendo World which will give Nintendo die-hards a live-action taste of the places inhabited by Mario, Link, Zelda, Kirby and more… but fans got their first glimpse of what Super Nintendo World might look like, courtesy of several concept art images released on Twitter with permission by Gary Snyder, an adviser on Western media and culture.

So, let's have a look at these would we, as the same attractions will most probably be part of Super Nintendo World when it will come after the opening in Japan to Universal Studios Hollywood and Orlando.

Let's start by the Nintendo "king", Super Mario, with the rendering below showing the Mario Kart ride, as well as two others renderings, including one showing the whole inside of the ride! Some say that the guests will wear during the ride augmented reality glasses, but so far nothing has been confirmed, so take this for now as a rumor.

The next rendering shows the Donkey Kong ride, the coaster and a playground.

Super Nintendo World will include two castles related to famous Nintendo games, and here is two digital renderings for these.

A last rendering seems to be related to a theatre attraction with a female character, i'm not a specialist about Nintendo games to be honest but it seems to be Zelda?

Finally, last week a map of Super Nintendo World was leaked but keep in mind that there might be some changes since it was done if it is an early concept map, and in fact this is the map for the Orlando version of Super Nintendo World, and by what we can see on it Super Nintendo World will be constructed between Simpsons land and E.T. Adventure, taking over most of Woody Woodpecker’s Kid’s Zone including Curious George Play Area, Woody Woodpecker’s Nuthouse Coaster, Fievel’s Playland, Animal Actors Studio and the A Day in the Park with Barney show.

We'll probably learn more about the rides soon and D&M will let you know. In the meantime, i repost below the Super Nintendo World "trailer" released for the groundbreaking event.

I have a feeling it's fake.

Why would plans be made for Orlando first and the layout concept is mission the Springfield Expansion around the Simpsons ride which it would surely have if it was official.

Also yes the second Castle is the Legend of Zelda based as that's Princess Zelda haha.

Actually this is the Floridian variant. japan does not (of least used to) have the ET attraction. It is a USF exclusive. Plus, the Springfield segment is a bit of a giveaway that this is indeed the FLORIDA version, not Japan. But I'm sure they are both very similar.

This is actually just a proof of concept which literally means it was used to sell the idea, nothing more. When it's complete it'll have a totally different look and layout.

Who ever said these were the first plans that were made? These are simply the first plans that were leaked, nothing more.

I hope I don't sound like a curmudgeon, but these plans look dreadful to me. Thank God they're not going into any didn't park!
