Super Nintendo World Is the Closest You'll Get to Stepping Into a Video Game

Despite what you may have seen in films like Tron or Jumanji, it’s impossible for humans to jump from their couches into a video game. Or, at least, it was. That’s the experience Universal and Nintendo are hoping to recreate with Super Nintendo World, the brand new themed land that opens at Universal Studios Hollywood in Los Angeles, CA on February 17. It’s the first of its kind in North America and the second in the world.

Ahead of the opening, io9 got a walkthrough tour of the new attraction. Located on the lower lot of the theme park, guests first walk through a familiar-looking green pipe and hear that unmistakable “Bwah, bwah, bwah” warp sound. You’ve just left Universal Studios and are in the Mushroom Kingdom, a fully immersive, 360-degree world filled with Super Mario everything. There are mushrooms, there are question mark blocks, there are Goombas, Koopas, pipes, Piranha Plants, and Thwomps as far as the eye can see. You emerge from Peach’s castle, where something’s been stolen from her—and, in the distance, you see Bowser’s castle, where you can race him and all of his friends.

Piranha plans? Pow blocks? This is Mario alright.

io9 was part of a group of journalists given a whirlwind walking tour of the still-under-construction land last week. So, unfortunately, we weren’t able to ride the land’s main attraction, Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge, but we did learn that’s only one of the many things you can do in Super Nintendo World, all of which get instantly cooler if you buy a $40 Power-Up Band.

With that band (which doubles as a Nintendo Amiibo and is available in six different designs), you can collect coins everywhere in the land. And we do mean “everywhere.” While coins will primarily be accrued on the Mario Kart ride and through various physical mini-games (more on those in a second) there are multiple nooks and crannies built into the land specifically for exploration. See a random arrow on the wall? Follow it and you might find a series of magic blocks and AR binoculars, similar to the ones elsewhere in the park. Curious why there’s an alcove to nowhere? Go in and a mysterious “M” on the wall will reveal why. Some question mark blocks give you one coin, others give you more, but all are only activated if you have a Power-Up Band. (If not, you get that familiar “thud” noise like when mini-Mario can’t break a block of bricks.)

The Thwomp challenge lets you flip tiles to defeat him.

The main story of the land is that a Golden Mushroom has been stolen from Princess Peach and it’s up to you, the guest, to try and get it back. To do so, you’ll have to acquire at least three of four available keys that you get by completing “key challenges,” which are short, Mario-themed interactive games. One involves defeating a Piranha Plant, another a Goomba, the third a Koopa Troopa, and finally, a Thwomp. Each will require you (and in some cases a few friends) to physically solve puzzles or play games against a timed clock and have both easy and hard modes, depending on your ability and previous progress. At the time of our visit, we were only able to do the Thwomp challenge, which demands you and your friends to communicate in order to change a huge screen of tiles all to the same color. It was manic, intense, and fun.

Each challenge will have its own individual queue and if you complete it, you get a key that will be registered by your Power Band, as well as the number of coins you got. If you don’t have a Power Band, you can play all the challenges, you just won’t be keeping score; score is kept in the Universal app as well as on interactive leaderboards in the land. (Your Power Band also keeps your score when you go home so you can come back and add to it.) Once you get three keys (though you don’t actually have to, because buying a Power Band isn’t a requirement) you can go into Bowser Jr.’s castle and compete in a mini-boss battle. Here, up to 12 people will jump and react to a 180-degree screen that tracks their movements and, if the group defeats Bowser Jr., Peach’s Golden Mushroom will be returned. Again, this challenge was not operating when we toured the land but even just standing in the space and looking at it, you could tell it’s easily the second coolest thing you could do, behind the Mario Kart ride.

As for that Mario Kart ride, lining up for it will take you up and around the outskirts of Super Nintendo World and ultimately through the entrance of Bowser’s Castle, the centerpiece of the entire space. Inside, you’ll walk through Bowser’s office, which is filled with Super Mario Bros. and Mario Kart Easter eggs. Some favorites include books such as “Don’t Bring Bananas to a Shell Fight,” “Shy Guy: Behind the Mask,” “The Art of Balloon Battle,” a multi-volume set called “The Saga of the Mushroom Kingdom,” and a miniature recreation of the ride’s virtual track. Those are just a few I noticed at first glance but you could seriously spend hours in the office section of the queue and keep finding new things.

Again, we weren’t able to ride the ride itself but the queue is breathtaking. We were also that told, once onboard, you’ll be fitted with a visor and glasses to fully enjoy the experience during which you can steer and throw shells as you race against all your favorite Mario characters. To be clear though, the ride simulates a race, it’s not an actual race. You just sit there and enjoy but, if you choose to do a little extra along the way, you can impact some of what happens and accrue more coins, which are tallied at the end and displayed to everyone on board. If you have a Power Band, it’ll then be added to your total.

Time to suit up, and look at those cool little details like Luigi’s vacuum.
Image: Hamilton Pytluk/Universal Studios Hollywood

Beyond the Mario Kart ride, four key challenges, and boss battle, Super Nintendo World has two character meet-and-greets section—one for Princess Peach and one for Mario and Luigi—as well as the table service restaurant called Toadstool Cafe (in which many, but not all, of the items include mushrooms) and a gift shop, 1-Up Factory, which also serves as the exit to Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge. For now, that’ll be filled almost exclusively with merchandise available at other shops around the park like Mario-themed hats, shirts, stuffed dolls, and more.

As a long-time Nintendo and Mario fan, what impressed me more than anything you could do in Super Nintendo World was just standing in it. Though you’re on the Universal Studios backlot, a few feet from Transformers: The Ride and right off the 101 highway, the land feels detached. With the Mario music blaring, walls built up just high enough to block most distractions, and the ever-moving, beautifully designed sets, you really do get that “I’m inside a Mario game” feeling. I wanted to put down my notebook and run around like I was six years old and high off of a killer session of Duck Hunt. Will a person who doesn’t know Link from Zelda or Chris Pratt from Bob Hoskins feel the same way? To an extent, it would be hard not to—the land is that physically engrossing—but big Nintendo and Mario fans are absolutely going to get more out of the experience than people who aren’t.

Pokey in the house!
Image: Hamilton Pytluk/Universal Studios Hollywood

Also, it is called Super “Nintendo” World, not Super “Mario” World, so there’s at least one little wink to another Nintendo franchise (Pikmin)—but that’s it, at least for now. Future expansions are possible, if not probable, but take lots of time and planning, especially when the entirety of Universal Studios Hollywood is already an elaborate puzzle piece, clicked into a space between the studio itself and several major highways. That means, for now, Super Nintendo World is all about Mario, Luigi, Peach, and the crew, with the aim to hopefully immerse fans in the iconic video game franchise.

However, it’s important to note, all of this was experienced in a land that was not overrun with people. There were no lines for hours on end. No virtual queues conquered or reservations needed. How Super Nintendo World will end up feeling once it’s a fully integrated part of Universal Studios Hollywood is something theme parks fans can debate in the future. Even at first glance, though, it being so far from the park entrance feels like a misstep, even if it was necessary. Either way, at this stage, weeks before opening, the positive intentions and attention to detail are undoubtedly there. The goal is to transport fans from Hollywood to the Mushroom Kingdom, and in that aim Super Nintendo World succeeds.

Super Nintendo World opens at Universal Studios Hollywood on February 17. It’ll be open to anyone in the park unless it reaches capacity, then reservations will be required. Click here for more info.

Citadel Becomes Second-Most Expensive Show Ever Amid Creative Overhaul

by Anthony Nash

Citadel, a planned Amazon Prime Video series from Anthony and Joe Russo, has been dealing with a huge overhaul, including an inflated budget, massive overturn, and more.

RELATED: The Electric State: Michelle Yeoh & More Join Russo Brothers’ Star-Studded Netflix Movie

According to a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter, the series has recently seen the exit of half of the creative team, and has already been sent into a round of “expensive reshoots.” The report notes that the seven-episode series — which was reportedly costing Amazon $160 million total — has now seen its budget raised by an additional $75 million, with the series on track to becoming the second-most expensive show ever made.

The report goes on to mention that the series began struggling early on, as the Russo brothers were less involved than previously thought due to their commitment to the Netflix film The Gray Man. Because of that, creative differences began to brew, with two competing cuts — one from the Russos and the other from writers Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec — with Amazon eventually choosing to continue with the Russos and letting Appelbaum go late last year.

Alongside Appelbaum, who was acting as showrunner, Brian Kirk, who had directed five out of the seven episodes of the series, also left. Currently, the series is continuing to undergo reshoots with the Russos at the helm.

The untitled series (w/t Godzilla and the Titans) is expected to be set within the world of Legendary’s MonsterVerse. It will reportedly explore “one family’s journey to uncover its buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch.”

The first two episodes will be directed by WandaVision director Matt Shankman, who will also serve as an executive producer. Co-creators Chris Black and Matt Fraction will executive produce with Black also serving as showrunner. Executive producers also include Safehouse Pictures’ Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell, and Toho Co. Ltd. Hiro Matsuoka and Takemasa Arita for Toho. Toho is the owner of the character Godzilla as well as having licensed the rights to Legendary for this upcoming project.

Following the success of Godzilla vs. Kong, which earned over $467 million at the worldwide box office, Legendary began expansion talks in the MonsterVerse through a series, with Apple immediately showing interest in the project. It didn’t take long for a deal to be struck between the streamer and Legendary, with the company already developing the next untitled film in the MonsterVerse in addition to this new series

by Maggie Dela Paz

FX has set the premiere date for the upcoming fourth and final season of Donald Glover’s acclaimed comedy-drama Atlanta. Two months after the third season concluded its 10-episode run, the series is now scheduled to make its return this coming September.

The date announcement was made through a newly released teaser, which you can check out below. The video shows the quartet’s return to Atlanta following their European trip in the last season.

The last season recently bagged two Emmy Award nominations including Outstanding Lead Actor for Donald Glover and Outstanding Directing for Hiro Murai, who’s nominated for his work on “New Jazz.”

Atlanta hails from creator, executive producer, and star Donald Glover. It tells the story of two cousins named Earn Marks and Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles, who work through the Atlanta music scene in order to better their lives and the lives of their families.

Joining Glover are Emmy nominees Brian Tyree Henry (Eternals) as Paper Boi, and Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2) as Vanessa, along with Oscar nominee LaKeith Stanfield (Jesus and the Black Messiah) as Darius Epps.

As for the second season, it earned multiple Emmy nominations, including for Outstanding Comedy Series.

Cool Stuff: The Simpsons Super7 Action Figure Line Brings In Bartman, Duffman, Krusty And Hank Scorpio

by Ethan Anderton

Super7 launched an amazing new line of "The Simpsons" action figures as part of the ULTIMATES collection. The first round includes Homer Simpsons in space, "Moe" Szyslak, the robot versions of Itchy & Scratchy, and the reviled Poochie. The second wave brings us another collection of fan favorites, including Bart Simpson's superhero alter ego Bartman, the beer mascot Duffman, the depressing TV star Krusty the Clown, and Hank Scorpio, the evil genius and owner of Globex Corporation. They all come with an incredible array of accessories that make them a must-have for any die-hard fans of "The Simpsons," including some lovable animal sidekicks. Check them all out below!


Everybody do the Bartman! The superhero disguise of the troublemaking member of the Simpsons clan comes with his trusty skateboard, a slingshot a Radioactive Man comic book, and a bonus figure of his loyal canine sidekick, Santa's Little Helper. What are the odds that we'll ever see Bartman joined by his sidekick, Houseboy, AKA Milhouse Van Houten.

Bartman debuted in the episode "Three Men and a Comic Book," as a last minute attempt to get a discount on a comic convention admission price by dressing as a superhero. Unfortunately, this disguise didn't get him a discount, but it did get him a whole line of comic books and appearances in "The Simpsons" video games. Pre-order Bartman right here.


Are you ready to get Duffed? Another superhero is coming in the second wave of "The Simpsons" action figures from Super7, and that's Duffman. The figure brings the Duff Beer mascot to life with a 7-pack of cold ones, a Duff #1 foam hand, and Santa's Little Helper as Suds McDuff. 

If this action figure somehow starts drinking all the beer in your house, you'll only have yourself to blame. Because you should know by now that Duffman gets carried away with his love of partying. Duffman had a dream once, but life... life is filed with compromises! Oh yeah! Pre-order Duffman right here.

Hank Scorpio

Hank Scorpio might look like a formidable villain, but he's pretty much the worst. That World's Best Boss mug certainly isn't indicative of his skills as a bad guy, but he's certainly warm and welcoming to the Simpsons when Homer gets a job at a new nuclear power plant. Scorpio comes with that signature mug, a flame-thrower and fuel pack, grenade, and remote control.

This is just one of several characters voiced by the legendary Albert Brooks over the years, and it makes us wish that these figures came with some kind of sound component that played their most memorable quotes, just like the Playmates figures from the early 2000s. Pre-order Hank Scorpio right here.

Krusty The Clown

Finally, get ready for some laughs with everyone's favorite comedian, Krusty the Clown. This figure has a couple incredible interchangeable heads, including one with a cigarette and a frustrated facial expression. Plus, Krusty comes with a box of his trademark cereal, a cream pie, his off-camera robe, and his monkey sidekick Mr. Teeny. There's even an interchangeable hand with both a coffee and cigarette. You can pre-order Krusty the Clown right here.

Now that Krusty the Clown has joined the collection, we're hoping that Sideshow Bob isn't far behind. Presumably he'll come with a head that depicts him laughing maniacally, but we'll have to wait and see what happens.

Human Resources Trailer: Hormone Monsters And Shame Wizards Assemble For The Big Mouth Spin-Off

by Joshua Meyer

The world of "Big Mouth" is about to get bigger. Netflix's Emmy-winning adult animated sitcom, which features the voices of Nick Kroll and John Mulaney, is going five seasons strong and already has a long-standing order for a sixth season. It's also got a spin-off, "Human Resources," on the way in March, and the first teaser has arrived.

Last summer brought details on the voice cast for "Human Resources," which includes Randall Park ("WandaVision"), Keke Palmer ("Hustlers"), "Saturday Night Live" cast member Aidy Bryant, and "Big Mouth" season 4 writer Brandon Kyle Goodman. Kroll and some other "Big Mouth" names will also lend their voices to "Human Resources," including series regular Maya Rudolph and recurring guest stars Jean Smart and Bobby Cannavale. Other big names attached to this spin-off include Rosie Perez, Henry Winkler, and Jemaine Clement.

David Thewlis will also return as Shame Wizard as the spin-off moves to the extradimensional home world of the Hormone Monsters, who have been stimulating the desires of cartoon middle schoolers on "Big Mouth" since 2017. Side note: if you're going to have a character called Shame Wizard, you might as well have David Thewlis voice him. The naming logic of these shows just plain rocks, not unlike Pete the Logic Rock, the new character Park is playing.

The teaser for "Human Resources" takes the form of a recruitment video. Check it out below.

Human Resources Teaser Trailer

"Human Resources" follows "the professional team of creatures who make humans ... human." The premise of this series seems like a twisted take on the premise in Pixar's "Inside Out." In the teaser, a deceptively smooth voice peels back the layers of humor, saying, "Understanding the human experience is an opportunity to discover new and innovative ways to make people more loving, logical, horny, humiliated, and beyond."

"Big Mouth" made headlines in summer 2020 when actress Jenny Slate decided to step away from the show in the wake of the George Floyd protests. She had been voicing a Black character named Missy, who was subsequently recast, with comedian and series writer Ayo Edebiri taking over the role. As forward-thinking as the creatives behind this fictional animated universe might be, however, "Human Resources" is still a show that is not above centering a set of private parts among the circular corporate logos in the above teaser.

"Human Resources" hits Netflix on March 18, 2021.

Peaky Blinders' Story Will Continue Into World War II And Beyond

by Jeremy Mathai

If you thought you had a handle on where exactly in history that the Birmingham-set gangster series "Peaky Blinders" would finally call it quits, think again. This comes directly by order of the Peaky Blinders themselves -- or, rather, series creator Steven Knight. The "Locke" and "Spencer" writer has previously made his intentions known for the Cillian Murphy-led crime drama to come to an end upon the outset of World War II. 

So far, the series has documented Tommy Shelby's (Murphy) rise to the top of London's violent family of gangs while also balancing his struggles with PTSD, stemming from his brutal experiences in World War I as a tunneler. Through Tommy and his far less emotionally buttoned-up brother, Arthur (Paul Anderson), much of the series has overtly dealt with the horrors of war and how taking a life (or many) changes a person. 

Thematically, it made sense that "Peaky Blinders" would take us from the aftermath of one World War to the beginning of the next, fated to leave irreparable scars on a whole new generation. However, just like the original hopes to end "Peaky Blinders" with seven total seasons, plans have once again changed. According to Knight, fans can expect to witness the Shelby family grapple with the beginning, and possibly even the aftermath, of World War II. In an interview with Empire, Knight spilled some details about the upcoming sixth season:

"It was always Britain between the wars -- how the lesson from one war was not learned and was repeated. It's also the end of empire: we enter the Second World War and by the end of it, there is no empire, really. But I ... have revised the scope of what it is. It will now go into and beyond the Second World War. Because I just think the energy that is out there in the world for this, I want to keep it going, and I want to see how this can progress beyond that."

Those who know their history will know that, unlike the continental United States, Britain witnessed the ravages of war firsthand in their own backyard. It's hard to imagine the petty in-fighting between Birmingham gangs amounting to much in the midst of the Blitz, but that's likely why last season introduced the threat of villainous fascist Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin). That's called thinking ahead!

"The End Of The Beginning"

Steven Knight goes on to lay out his writing process in figuring out exactly how to bring "Peaky Blinders" in for a landing. Thrillingly, it has already been announced that the story will not be ending with this final season. A feature film is in the works, scheduled to start production in 2023. That means fans can sit back and enjoy the journey that the upcoming sixth season takes us on, without worry that we'll never get to see these characters again. (Well, some of them are likely fated to die tragic and painful deaths. That's just the name of the game. But besides that, I mean!) Knight refers to season 6 (or series 6, as the proper folks across the pond call it) as "the end of the beginning."

As you may have gathered by now, Knight isn't a fan of pre-planning every step of the series ahead of time, preferring instead to let the story take him along its winding path. According to Knight, "I don't know what's gonna happen until I get to writing. The way I tend to work is not to plan, and I think if I did plan, I wouldn't be able to do it. Just sit at the keyboard and if you know the characters well enough, let 'em loose and see what they say to each other. Let the dialogue guide the plot."

Sort of sounds a little bit like Tommy Shelby, known for playing fast and loose with all his grand ambitions and pulling off several last-minute escapes, eh? The final ending of "Peaky Blinders" might be a long ways off, but season 6 is set to premiere in early 2022.

Vikings: Valhalla also stars Bradley Freegard (King Canute), Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson (Olaf Haraldsson), Caroline Henderson (Jarl Haakon), Laura Berlin (Emma of Normandy), David Oakes (Earl of Godwin), Louis Davison (Prince Edmund), Bosco Hogan (King Aethelred II), Asbjørn Krogh Nissen (Jarl Kåre), Pollyanna McIntosh (Aelfgifu of Northampton), and Soren Pilmark (King Sweyn Forkbeard).
