You thought Nintendo was done for the year? Surprise! Today it announced a brand new Nintendo Direct, to reveal 15 minutes of new footage for Super Nintendo World, the .
Super Nintendo World will be its own unique section, as part of Universal Studios Japan, located in Osaka.
What do we know about the park so far? All is detailed in the above video but Super Nintendo World will be connected to these unique smart watch devices that work, not only like fitness trackers, but are connected to locations around the park, allowing you to take part in challenges — almost like a game within a game inside the park.
What to expect
Super Nintendo World features two major rides. One isthemed, called Koopa’s Challenge, and is an augmented reality enhanced roller coaster that uses Mario themed headset featuring lenses that allow users to see wild augmented reality visuals. The second ride is called Yoshi’s Adventure, which appears to be skewed towards younger park goers.
We expect the 15 minutes of footage to focus on those two rides, but we could learn more about the space itself: What it looks like, what the stores and restaurants will feature and more.
The Super Nintendo World Direct takes place at…

11pm GMT on December 18
