On the list of place to go once it’s safe to gather in groups with strangers again is Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan. It looks about as amazing as it could possibly look, complete with buildings made with N64 polygonal style. Here’s more from Kotaku:
The park, now due to open next Spring, is looking like a dream come true. A photo published by The Sankei News last month shows that things are pretty much finished, at least externally. Guests enter the park through the area in the bottom left of the photo (Peach’s castle, visible more clearly in another photo), and will find themselves standing in a space that takes in some of the most iconic Mario locations imaginable, from Toad Houses to general platforming stages to an ice level.
There are coin blocks everywhere—for a reason—and the rear of the park is dominated by the Mario Kart ride, and an enormous rendering of Bowser’s Castle, complete with N64-style polygonal styling.
