Super Nintendo World Entrance Sign Lit for the First Time, More Figure Testing Underway at Universal Studios Hollywood

We’re now less than two months from the first Super Nintendo World outside of Japan opening to the world, and we can’t contain our excitement! So right before the holidays, we figured we’d stop on by to check out the latest happenings in the Mushroom Kingdom!

Scaffolds are back up around Bowser’s face to put the finishing touches on. The sign also appears to have been installed for Toadstool Cafe.

Closer to the land’s entrance, we heard them testing background music for Super Star Plaza! It’s the same music you hear at the land’s entrance in Japan.

As the day turned to twilight, we noticed something extra cool — the entrance sign is lit for the first time!

Obviously it can be a bit hard to tell when it’s not fully dark, but the sign is fully lit for testing, and the LED panels in the Warp Pipe were also being tested.
