Mario Cafe & Store to open prior to the rest of the world on Hollywood Boulevard
Its-a official! Super Nintendo World will be opening in Spring 2021 at Universal Studios Japan after a COVID-19 delay saw the theme park postpone its opening from earlier this year. The press release announcing the new opening window also revealed that a new Mario-themed cafe and shop will be opening on Hollywood Boulevard in the Hollywood area of the park.
The Mario Cafe & Store will have food and drink based on the plumber and pals, asking "Whose Cap?" do people prefer (personally, I like the Peach crown!). The Mario cap dessert will have a strawberry shortcake flavor, while the Luigi cap has a Grape Cheesecake flavor. The drinks for the boys are the same flavor, with Peach having a peach flavored drink and the Mushroom cup for those who just want soft drink.
The merchandise sold in the shop is also based on the same "Whose Cap?" motif, with exclusive prints that can only be found at the USJ store.
Universal Studios Japan opened up again on June 19, but is still reducing attendance, with only domestic tourists allowed to enter (not that tourists from abroad are allowed in the country at the moment). Super Nintendo World was scheduled to open before the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, and still might now they have been delayed to Summer 2021.
