Nintendo Reveals an Exciting New Trailer for Super Nintendo Land

The song is catchy, I'll be the first to admit.

We’ve reported in the past on Nintendo’s plan to venture out of the digital world and into the real one by opening up a theme park at Universal Studios Japan. Before, however, all we had were a few pictures taken from ground level at the construction, a vague trailer that consisted mostly of promises from the interested parties, and a few WIP illustrations of what they had planned.

Today, I’m not going to say we have a definitive, clear view of what the Super Nintendo world at Universal Studios Japan will look like, but we definitely have a better look – and a snappy new trailer that promises a world of fun and horror.



The trailer, outside having snappy music and showing people literally on the verge of death between synchronized dance moves, doesn’t actually communicate what kind of activities people can expect to enjoy at Super Nintendo World, but it does reveal the existence of a snappy wristband and a phone app, both of which you’ll presumably need to get the most out of the attractions.

There was an accompanying press event that coincided with the release of this trailer, and while it was in Japanese, we did learn a few things from translations. Apparently, you’ll use the app to “smack blocks” as you travel across the land, which will net you coins and stars, which will be displayed on a leaderboard somewhere on the park. We also learned that the boss will contain boss fights, which will involve cooperation with several guests in order to defeat.

There’s still a lot we don’t know about this park, but a more clear image is certainly coming to shape. I would guess it’s going to mix physical playgrounds with smartphone-based AR to create something like a Mario game in the real world – which could be a lot of fun!

A lot more fun than outrunning thwomps and avoiding fireballs, in any case.
