Japan's Nintendo Co Ltd confirmed on Tuesday that a "Donkey Kong" themed expansion to their "Super Nintendo World" in Universal Studios Japan in Osaka will open in 2024.
A "Super Mario" themed area opened at the park this year in a major expansion of Nintendo's efforts to enlarge operations on its business beyond console games. The opening was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nintendo said that the "guests will be able to take a walk on the wild side through the lush jungles where Donkey Kong and his friends live."
The area of expansion will include a roller coaster and interactive experiences and increase the size of its themed area by 70%.
