Universal Studios's new Super Nintendo World attraction gets an official trailer, showing off what we can expect from the exotic new park.

Super Nintendo World looks like tons of fun, and the park is currently in development at three Universal Studios theme parks in Osaka Japan, Hollywood, California, and Orlando, Florida.

Based on images dug up by devout Twitter users, we're able to highlight some of the major rides that Super Nintendo World may offer, with possibilities like: a Donkey Kong themed cart rollercoaster ride, an on-rails Mario Kart ride, a watersled ride that hints the park will have a water-themed attraction, and a strange stand-up ride that may have users shooting Mario's iconic fireballs out of their hands at a digital screen.


"We're going to be able to create an entire Nintendo world, and as we continue to develop it, that world became more immersive and more evolved and more colorful and more exciting...and more interactive," said Universal Studios Creative President Mark Woodbury

"When you're transported in that world, you feel as if you've just walked into your game platform...and I think that's going to be a really exciting time."

Based on what we've seen so far, Woodbury and Nintendo have clearly achieved their goal.

Super Nintendo World is set to open by the 2020 World Olympics.
