Super Nintendo World Pits Visitors Against Bosses, Each Other
Some more Super Nintendo World updates are trickling in after the initial reveal a few days ago in Japan, courtesy of GamesIndustry.biz.
We reported on the park's Jump Bands and how they will let visitors interact with the park and each other in different ways. GI.biz provided further information about these interactions. Along with collecting digital coins, visitors will gather stamps and team up with other visitors to take on bosses. There will also be competitions of some kind between visitors.
Universal Creative CCO Thierry Coup also expanded on the original comment that the park is a living video game. Coup said:
You're not just playing the game; you're living the game, you're living the adventure. Nintendo's most iconic locations and experiences will be brought to life, including Mushroom Kingdom, Peach's Castle, an incredible Mario Kart ride, Bowser's Castle — and more.
Sorry Cinderella, but we'll have to cancel our castle visit with you; Bowser's calling.
While at least one of the U.S. Super Nintendo World parks will have some Donkey Kong-themed areas, it seems the Osaka park is heavily Mario focused. It's not too surprising, given the park's opening coincides with the Summer 2020 Olympics and how Mario famously closed the last Summer Olympics.
