PHOTOS: Super Nintendo World “Technical Rehearsal” Held Ahead of Annual Passholder Previews at Universal Studios Japan

The other day, we got a huge sneak peek inside Super Nintendo World, the immersive new experience coming to Universal Studios Japan from Mario’s creator and Nintendo executive Shigeru Miyamoto. But while the expansion won’t be open to the public until February 4th of next year, the first Guests have already made their visits to the Mushroom Kingdom! According to several Tweets, an invite-only “technical rehearsal” was held at the park today!


Several Tweets from Guests visiting Universal Studios Japan revealed that the Super Nintendo World sign was once again uncovered, the long-present fence has been removed, and a sign was up informing Guests that a “Technical Rehearsal” was underway in the land. Annual Passholder lottery previews begin December 23rd.

The sign informs Guests that entry is by invitation only, with a special entry QR code required for access to Super Nintendo World. There are also guidelines in the “area guide” Guests are requested to obey. And most importantly, as it’s highlighted in a red box, Guests are asked to not post any photos or videos of the Super Nintendo World interior until its grand opening on February 4th, 2021.

We can see a few neat things on the outside already, like these lamp posts shaped lilke ? Blocks!

Lottery winner Annual Passholder previews for Super Nintendo World begin December 23rd, and the land opens to the public on February 4th, 2021! Are you excited about Super Nintendo World? Be sure to stay tuned to Universal Parks News Today for the latest coverage, including on opening day!
