Universal Studios Japan has announced they will expand Super Nintendo World to include a new area themed after Donkey Kong – set to open in 2024.
The area will feature a roller coaster, interactive experiences, and themed merchandise and food. Guests will be able to take a walk through the lush jungles where Donkey Kong and his friends live.
Nintendo’s Donkey Kong franchise started with an arcade game in 1981 and quickly captured the hearts of fans around the world. Since then, the Donkey Kong game series has continually delivered more games on Nintendo video game systems.
With the addition of the Donkey Kong area, Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan will increase in size by approximately 70% and will be expanded adjacent to the Mario world-themed area with Peach Castle and Bowser Castle.
