It’s been a rocky start for Super Nintendo World. We can’t deny that it looks spectacular and we’d previously seen some (now removed) footage of Yoshi’s Adventure Ride, but Covid-19’s left the Japanese theme park’s opening indefinitely delayed.
Now the embargo has lifted, we’ve gotten a further look at Mario Kart: Koopa’s Challenge, an Augmented Reality experience that took six years to develop. Presented by Gio at Independent Guides, this video (above) offers an in-depth analysis of the footage we shared earlier in the month from Universal Park News Today.
Starting with a tour of Bowser’s Castle and pre-show rooms, it gives a clear outline of how Koopa’s Challenge works. Admittedly, this is hard to fully gauge without using an AR visor directly, but the analysis includes AR footage too.
Presented along a set path, visitors can expect familiar track archetypes, including a haunted mansion and “underwater” areas. Naturally, no Mario Kart experience is complete without Rainbow Road, and we’re pleased to say that’s also present.
It’s a great insight into this upcoming ride, and we’re looking forward to trying it out ourselves, once the pandemic subsides. If you can’t wait to visit, there’s always a Minecraft version in the meantime.
