PHOTOS: Another Look at Super Nintendo World Construction in Universal Studios Hollywood

Super Nintendo World opened earlier this year at Universal Studios Japan, but Californians still have to wait to jump into this video game land. Construction began on Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Hollywood in August 2020, and was confirmed in December 2020. Since Universal Studios Hollywood reopened, we’ve been able to catch glimpses of construction on the land.


There aren’t many obvious changes to the top level of Super Nintendo World since our last visit. However, the blue crane on the left side is no longer reaching up to the tallest tower.


Some temporary tents to protect crew from the Californian heat have been erected. That being said, we couldn’t see any crew members today.

Most construction materials have moved from beneath the shaded area to the tent location. Some mesh orange screening is also up around a circular area in the center.

Super Nintendo World is expected to open in 2022 at Universal Studios Hollywood. For a peek at what we can expect, take a look at our video tour from Universal Studios Japan.
