Super Nintendo World Theme Park Could Give You Real-Life 'Mario Kart'

It was revealed yesterday (via My Nintendo News) that Nintendo filed a trademark application for Super Nintendo World; as Uproxx notes, the text reveals a bunch of fun stuff the attraction could be getting, like Hugh Jackman's beloved real-life Mario Kart. The likely name for the park was unearthed in a trademark filing by ComicBook.com.

Super Nintendo World could therefore be the name of one of the amusement park attractions that the home of Kyoto is implementing in partnership with Universal Parks & Resorts, meant to open at Universal Studios Japan, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood. Officially, the language says, "arrangement of kart racing". The video is more of a concept but gives you an idea of what could be.

Unless Nintendo plans on reviving F-Zero in the most freaky way possible, this particular piece of the filing seems to refer to Nintendo's desire to implement a go-kart version of Mario Kart at Super Nintendo World. The company has sent in paperwork in the USA for a "Super Nintendo World" trademark. We're about to get a chance to do some Mario-style kart-racing. Or perhaps a dirt bike stunt show with people dressed in Excitebike uniforms?

Given that Universal just built new hotel properties in Orlando the latter is probably limited to Hollywood or Japan only, but then again Super Nintendo World is only slated to drop in 2020 in Japan, with an undisclosed date for the US.

It seems that Nintendo wants to go into the theme park business. 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.
