Super Nintendo World Trademark Hints at Mario Kart Racing Ride

The Nintendo rides are expected to open in Universal Studios Japan in 2020, with little else known about either of the American counterparts. "You'll feel as if you're playing inside your favorite games - in real life", according to the Orlando Sentinel. This filing is made all the more interesting by Nintendo's recent legal dispute with the proprietor of a Japanese businessman who offers people the chance to engage in real-life Mario Kart races in the streets of Tokyo. But Super Nintendo World sounds like a good fit for the new section of the Universal parks.

The trademark entered the Trademark Reporting and Monitoring System on May 27, and contains a thick paragraph of different applications that Nintendo plans to use for Super Nintendo World.

The broad scope of the patent would allow for everything from Mario-themed mushroom burgers to an in-park games arcade, which would certainly help introduce multiplayer-centric titles like Splatoon 2 and ARMS to a wider audience, or perhaps introduce a new generation to the classics.

It seems that Nintendo wants to go into the theme park business. It's entirely possible that last application refers to an ARG experience that can only be played within Super Nintendo World. However, one newly uncovered trademark has been discovered showing that Nintendo has recently filed for the "Super Nintendo World" trademark in the United States.

Nintendo has previously teased the plans for their attractions and suggesting the idea of feeling like you are stepping inside a world created for their hit franchises.
