It’s barely even opened (and no Australia has had the chance to head over), but Nintendo has already confirmed the first expansion for Super Nintendo World in Japan.
The first expansion will be a Donkey Kong themed area, which is set to open in 2024. This has been rumoured, through leaked plans for years, but this announcement comes officially from Nintendo.
They’ve said that the Donkey Kong area will feature a roller coaster, interactive experiences, Donkey Kong themed merchandise and food. Guests will also be able to walk through through the lush jungle where Donkey Kong and his friends live.
The promotional image that Nintendo has shown match leaked renders from the Donkey Kong portion of Super Nintendo World.
Hopefully next year will see travel open up and we can all get over to Super Nintendo World in the next year. If you’re needing a refresher, there’s a bunch of info and images about the theme park here.
