A great week for the great ape.
Super Nintendo World will expand with Kong.
Nintendo and Universal Studios Japan have announced that they will be expanding the existing Super Nintendo World to include a Donkey Kong theme world. No specific names were planned for the sights, although a “roller coaster, interactive experiences and themed goods and food” are promised with guests “who can take a walk on the wild side”.
The new world is slated to open in 2024 and will expand the Nintendo area at USJ by around 70% when completed. After some delays caused by the pandemic, Super Nintendo World itself opened to the public earlier this year. A North American version of the world is still planned for 2025 at Universal Studios Orlando.
