Seems to have the worst secret finally Confirmed-Super Nintendo World has acquired a Donkey Kong-themed “extension” and is scheduled to open in 2024.

According to an official Nintendo press release, this new area will allow park guests to walk through the “lush” jungle where Donkey Kong and his friends live. There are roller coasters, interactive experiences, and lots of themed merchandise and food.

The same PR mentions how the addition of a new Donkey Kong area would increase the size of the Super Nintendo World by about 70%.

Here’s what Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto had to say about the new expansion:

“I am very pleased to be able to follow the world of Mario to the world of Donkey Kong. I look forward to creating a thrilling Donkey Kong experience with the amazing team of Universal. It will take some time to complete. It will take, but it will be a unique area for all guests, not just those who are familiar with Donkey Kong games. “

This latest announcement follows the cast and release date of the Super Mario Anime movie at Nintendo Direct last week. Are you excited about Donkey Kong getting his theme area at Super Nintendo World Japan? Please leave a comment below.
