Nintendo will build Super Nintendo World Park at the Universal Studios in Japan. The themed area would be open when Tokyo hosts the 2020 Summer Olympic Games.

The company is constructing similar theme parks in Hollywood and Orlando in the U.S., which Nintendo announced in 2015 and the three locations in November. The three Super Nintendo World Parks would feature the most popular Nintendo games and characters, interactive areas, state-of-the-art rides, restaurants and shops, Engadget reports.

Super Mario Is Main Attraction

It means Super Mario will definitely be in the three Super Nintendo World Parks, along with Luigi, mascots Parch and Toads as well as the castles of Princess Peach and Bowser on both sides of the park. Shigeru Miyamoto, the creative fellow of Nintendo, assured that the characters and attractions would be developed at the highest level of quality by Nintendo and Universal Studios.

Super Nintendo World Park in Japan would be located at the land of Universal Studios currently used as parking space and areas for future expansion. The project is expected to cost more than 50 billion yen, or $433 million. The venture is expected to create more than one million jobs in Japan within 10 years of its opening.
