New attraction details emerge for Universal Studios' Super Nintendo World

The trademark filing makes it seem like its only a short matter of time before Super Nintendo World will officially make the jump to the United States, though when Hollywood and Orlando will play host to the Mushroom Kingdom still remains a mystery for the time being. While a US Trademark itself isn't a solid confirmation of anything, the Trademark was filed with the basis "1 (b)", which translated from legalese to English means "Intent to use". It was unlikely Nintendo and Universal would name the park after WiiU game Nintendo Land, but it would have also fit. The company has sent in paperwork in the USA for a "Super Nintendo World" trademark.

What do you think would be a good ride for Super Nintendo World, Ranters? The trademark filings hint at some of the attractions that will deliver on that promise.

"Organization, management or arrangement of kart racing" and "motorcycle events and other events with vehicles".

This could mean any number of things. If that doesn't scream, "OH MY GOD WE'RE GETTING MARIO KART IRL", we're not sure what does.

5 dead, 44 injured in Chicago shootings over holiday weekend
Numerous weekend's shootings were clustered on Monday, with 28 people shot between Friday and Sunday, the Trib notes. Sunday in a Lawndale neighborhood drive-by shooting that also left a 16-year-old girl wounded on the Southwest Side.


Assuming Nintendo doesn't plan to go back to the "Diddy Kong Racing" well, there's only one franchise that fits this bill: "Mario Kart". A real life dirt bike stunt show would certainly hit the mark there. Let those imaginations flow.

Given that Universal just built new hotel properties in Orlando the latter is probably limited to Hollywood or Japan only, but then again Super Nintendo World is only slated to drop in 2020 in Japan, with an undisclosed date for the US.

Three theme parks are now planned in Hollywood, Orlando, and Osaka, so might a European theme park be next?
