A year ago, Super Nintendo World in Japan opened its doors to the public after several setbacks and delays related to the pandemic.
To mark the one year anniversary, the park held a special celebration event this week. There was a marching band playing the original Super Mario Bros. theme and JL Bonnier – the CEO of Universal Studios Japan – appeared to thank everyone for their support. Of course, Mario and Luigi were there too.
When the park originally opened, Mario’s creator Shigeru Miyamoto was also in attendance. You can find a summary in the following article:
As part of the year-long celebrations, parkgoers can purchase a Limited Edition First Anniversary sticker now through March 31. The Power Up Band and USJ App also offer special stamps.
This latest milestone follows news earlier this month that a Super Nintendo World would open its doors in Hollywood in 2023. It was also announced late last year that Japan’s park would receive a Donkey Kong expansion, scheduled to open in 2024.
