As promised recently, the first Nintendo related announcement for a Universal park wasn't far off, as Universal Studios Japan has announced the addition of Super Nintendo World. The new land is planned to be open before the Olympics are held in Japan in 2020. The project comes with a hefty price tag of 50 billion yen, or around $430 million - this is a very large expansion!

No details were given on just what attractions will be added, but Universal recently filed some interesting patents that make it look like the Mario Kart ride so many want to see built just may come to life - that and a coaster-like ride with passengers in what appear to be a Donkey Kong mine cart.
Nintendo themed lands are also going to be subsequently built at Universal's parks in California and Florida.
