  1. They updated the Universal Studios Japan app to include the interactive content relating to Super Nintendo World (likely for the pass holder previews in a week or two)

    No need for screenshots, I encourage everyone to just enjoy the video:



    Also, get the official Universal Studios Japan app to explore the newly available Super Nintendo World section, which will be used for navigating the area to find activities (such as mini games and meet and greets), viewing rankings, connecting the Power Up Band, and viewing items (such as coins) that you’ve collected: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/universal-studios-japan/id532097000

  7. They’re going to be doing timed ticket entries. They already have to do that over in The Wizarding World due to its popularity.

    The land seems very small, I wonder how they will manage the crowds?

    I'm not 100% sure but I think this is a current aerial view of Super Nintendo World:



    Also this past week Universal shared a wider version of the promotional image that they have been using for years:



    For comparison here are the older versions:





    The wider image is also on display now in a new advertisement at Umeda Station in Osaka, which is the busiest railway station in western Japan:

    More photos inside the queue and station for Mario Kart: Koopa's Challenge plus the ride's augmented reality headset:





























    Paraphrased translation of the article describing the augmented reality aspect of the ride:

    Guests get into the vehicle, grab the steering wheel, drift and spin, and race with Mario and Luigi. During the race, you can also throw the shells you got from the item box at the enemy, which is a familiar part in the game. The result of the race is that you may win or lose, and you can enjoy a new experience every time you ride.

    In addition, one of the features of this attraction is that you can board the cart while wearing a headset that resembles Mario's hat. According to attraction executive producer Thomas Galati, the headset is "designed and developed to bring the world of Mario Kart to the real world," through AR (Augmented Reality), projection mapping, screen projection video, all kinds of world-leading video technology and special effects such as steam, and the famous scenes of successive games reproduced on the course as a set on the stage are elaborately combined, stories and characters appear in the real world, and it is an attraction where you can enjoy the world view of "Mario Kart".
