The trademark filing makes it seem like its only a short matter of time before Super Nintendo World will officially make the jump to the United States, though when Hollywood and Orlando will play host to the Mushroom Kingdom still remains a mystery for the time being. Now we know what might be there thanks to a recent trademark filing.
This relates to the company's newfound partnership with Universal Parks & Resorts, that will see Nintendo-themed areas built at Universal Studios Japan, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.
It's a solid name, no doubt.
Nintendo has filed a new trademark application for something called Super Nintendo World, and from what it sounds like, it could be the name of the Nintendo/Universal theme park.
So far, Nintendo has kept details of what will be actually included within Super Nintendo World aside from some concept art that showed off a Super Mario themed multi-leveled structure, a Toad house, a Princess Peach-style castle and a Bowser gate. Nintendo just released a deluxe version of Mario Kart 8 on the Nintendo Switch, and the Mario Kart franchise traces its origins back to the Super NES. "Since we're really bringing the world to life I think Mario will feel like he finally came home!" And "other events with vehicles" could leave the door open for roller coasters or perhaps an F-Zero racing attraction.
Three theme parks are now planned in Hollywood, Orlando, and Osaka, so might a European theme park be next?
At present, Nintendo still plans to open Super Nintendo World locations at the Flordia, California, and Osaka branches of Universal Parks and Resorts.
