New Trademark Hints That Super Nintendo World May Be Coming to America

The video game company is bringing a themed amusement park to Universal Studios around the world, and we're finally learning some details about it.

The trademark application also refers to a series of more generic requests such as hotels, character performances, and media rights which seemingly pertain to the usage of certain Nintendo properties in these new venues.

Nintendo has filed a trademark for Super Nintendo World with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The filing lists a bunch of general theme park features that are predictable but still exciting to see-things like apparel, Halloween costumes, gaming consoles, toys, and other merchandise.

Among other things, the application covers "amusement park shows and special events at an amusement park", as well as the "organisation, management, or arrangement of kart racing", which could be a reference to Nintendo's plans for a real-life Mario Kart experience.


The Japanese attraction is supposed to open in the Universal Studios park by 2020, to be done before the Japanese Olympics.

These hints and clues do wonders for the imagination, but don't expect to be zooming through a Rainbow Road Rollercoaster any time soon.

A few months back, we reported that Nintendo was jumping into the theme park business with Super Nintendo World, a joint venture with Universal Studios Japan.

Nintendo has previously teased the plans for their attractions and suggesting the idea of feeling like you are stepping inside a world created for their hit franchises. The likely name for the park was unearthed in a trademark filing by ComicBook.com. Let us know in the comments!
