This article is about the real-life Nintendo theme park. For the Wii U game, see Nintendo Land.

Super Nintendo World is a Nintendo-themed area at several Universal Studios theme parks. It consists of a series of attractions, shops, diners, and photo opportunities with various characters.

The original area is located in Universal Studios Japan, and opened on March 18th, 2021. A second Super Nintendo World in Universal Studios Hollywood opened on February 17th, 2023, and future parks are planned for Orlando and Singapore.

Despite primarily focusing on the Mario series, the park features a number of cameos and references to other Nintendo series, such as Pikmin.

Pick out Pikmin[edit]

Pick out Pikmin is the name of a stamp in the Universal Hollywood App. It is one of many stamps one can earn from exploring Super Nintendo World and each earns the player coins (which function as their score). To obtain Pick out Pikmin, one must first find a vantage point near the entrance to Bowser Jr. Shadow Showdown where they can use a pair of augmented reality binoculars. There are several secret spots that will cause the screen to "zoom in" and play an animation. One such spot can be found near a hill above the 1-Up Factory sign, said by the app to be Mt. Beanpole. It will zoom in to reveal an animation involving Pikmin. In it, a Red Pikmin watches a Blue Pikmin carrying a fruit, who trips and drops it onto a Yellow Pikmin.[2]. This awards the player the stamp and 65 coins.

Shopping Bags[edit]
