This guy knows a thing or two about Nintendo
Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Hollywood finally opens its doors on Feb. 17th, 2023, which is just over a month away. We already know excitement for the park is at an all-time high, as park-goers crashed the ticket pre-order website as soon as it opened. Those who are lucky enough to get in on day-one are no doubt in for a treat, and it’s one that’s been carefully crafted by Nintendo’s greatest.
According to a Comicbook.com interview with Universal Creative VP Jon Corfino, the park team worked very closely with none other than Shigeru Miyamoto during the entire process. Miyamoto didn’t just put his stamp of approval on certain ideas; he was deeply involved in the park’s creation.
“The partnership with Nintendo was absolutely fantastic. Miyamoto-san was a part of this every step of the way. It’s really been a pleasure. I’ve been working on this project for five or six years now, at least. He goes back to the very beginning along with the folks at the creative studio that helped develop and design this. So, it’s been a tremendous collaborative project.”
