Today’s Nintendo Direct will dive into the Super Nintendo World theme park

Not much has been shown of Japan’s Super Nintendo World but that’s about to change thanks to today’s Nintendo Direct.

What little has been shown of Universal Studios, Japan’s newest addition has Nintendo fans giddy with excitement with full-size versions of Bowser’s Keep, Peach’s Castle, and Yoshi’s Island for attendees to explore. You can even throw some bananas and red shells at your friends while whizzing around the Mario Kart track.

While Nintendo has already said that the showcase today won’t show off any of the rides, it will explore the theme park areas in much more detail than it ever has before.

The Nintendo Direct kicks at 6 PM tonight and you can watch it here.
