With Super Nintendo World originally set to open its doors to the public tomorrow, 4th February, a whole boatload of footage and press impressions from media outlets across Japan has now found its way online.
YouTube channel Universal Parks News Today has uploaded a staggering 21 videos today showing off various aspects of the park. From tours of its various areas and point-of-view recordings of its rides to a look at the café and a Pikmin hunt, the channel certainly has you covered if you want to be spoiled silly with details on what you can expect.
Naturally, if you're hoping to one day visit the park yourself when it does eventually open fully, you might want to steer clear of ruining the surprise. If you just want to see what all the fuss is about, though, we'll share a couple of particularly intriguing videos for you below, or you can watch them all over at Universal Parks News Today's channel:
We're sure you'll agree that everything looks stunning. Now, if only we could actually go!

Looks awesome, I wished they would also build one in Europe.
I’ve been planning to go to Japan with my daughter for years - going after covid. She’s 16 now & has loved Nintendo since age 3 when I played through ocarina of time with her on my lap. No question we’re going to Super Nintendo world!
Do wish that Mario Kart was a bit faster, especially considering it's based on a rcaing game.
I'm looking forward to a video that's not behind the headset, it would make it easier to see what is 'real'.
The AR tech seems quite impressive, however. Boom-Boom/Pom-Pom in particular were held quite stable in the airship prop.
I have to wonder if the MK Home Circuit team involved any of the same people as the ride, as the concept seems surprisingly similar.
That said, I was expecting a 'fast' sequence like in Disney's Test Track or Radiator Springs rides. It seems weird to be in a car on a race-themed ride and not have a speedy portion.
Looks great. Love the mario kart bill board posters
I’m genuinely excited to go sometime. We’ll do the Florida one, when that is built, but I’ve said to my Wife that we need to do Japan too. I’m 38, but I genuinely will be like a big kid here.
I’ll definitely pick up some Merchandise & I can’t wait to try the Food & ride the Rides. I’ve already said to my Wife I’ll be going for a Mario Power Up Band. I have to. He’s the main man! He’s my go to guy on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe & Super Mario Party.
The queue looks incredible. I think this is a "ride it to appreciate it" attraction. The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman is my favorite ride on earth... and it DOES NOT look good in YouTube videos. So my only option is to go to Japan to experience this 🤣.
Yeah I was expecting and hoping for the ride to be in the same vein of Cars Land's Radiator Springs Racers or something. That ride has slow and fast parts since its a based on racing. I will admit I'm surprised that the Mario Kart ride feels more in the vein of the Toy Story Midway Mania! ride. Very unexpected.
I'm not knocking it before I try it. I'm sure its great in its own way but I'm taken aback some about the direction they went with it. Will be a long time though before I get to try to the Hollywood version here to see for myself. Still though slightly bummed its not a fast ride but a slow interaction ride like Toy Story Midway Mania.
Looks like a lot of nothing.
And that AR game looks terrible, unfortunately.
Pretty upset it's only tracks from MK8DX and not tracks that are beloved like Waluigi Pinball and Coconut Mall.
I was expecting it to be like Spiderman or Transformers, but with AR. This looks... interesting?
The Mario Kart ride looks like any other motion based ride from Disney and Universal Studios. Maybe the AR might make the difference, but this seems a bit underwhelming. At least the park's aesthetic and merch look great.
Just watched the first video and I'm confused if all that walk is just to get to go to the MK attraction?
That looks to like an eternity of wait in a normal day.
So they're back on board with the Koopalings as Bowser's kids. As it should be.
On the positive side, the Twisted Manor scene looks really great along with the animatronic Piranha Plants in the sewer!
The actual Mario Kart ride looks as though it's targeted for 5 year olds. While I appreciate they need to cater for a family audience I was hoping for an immersive state of the art experience like Spiderman or Transformers. I remember being similarly disappointed when Disney first opened The 7 Dwarves Mine Train in Florida when for years they already had the much better ride Thunder Mountain. After visiting DisneySea in Tokyo be warned the ride queues are massive in Japan, so best to split up and use single-rider.
The attention to detail is amazing. Hope to get there one day.
