We’re just under one month away from the grand opening of Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan! And while we have seen quite a bit already thanks to Shigeru Miyamoto’s 15-minute tour of the land, now we have a sneak peek at some of the popcorn buckets thanks to the land’s new dedicated website! There’s two planned right now—a Mario Kart bucket, and a light-up Star bucket!

Mario Kart Popcorn Bucket


Featuring a winking Mario aboard his iconic kart, this new popcorn bucket also features a special Super Nintendo World lanyard with various characters and items from the beloved Mario Kart series.
