After several postponements due to Covid-19, Universal Studios Japan’s brand-new area Super Nintendo World has finally opened on March 18. In order to enter the Osaka theme park’s new extension, you’ll have to get a special area ticket along with the usual entry pass for USJ.

Luckily, the timed entry tickets for the Super Nintendo World area are free, and you can get one via the park’s official smartphone app (iOS/Android) or at designated machines after entering Universal Studios Japan. You can even select your preferred entry time inside the app or at the machine.

But if you want to beat the queues that will no doubt form in front of every ride, opt for the Universal Express Pass Premium (from ¥18,700), the Universal Express Pass 7 (from ¥10,800) or the Universal Express Pass 4 (from ¥7,800). They each include entry to Super Nintendo World and work as a fastpass for a number of attractions, such as Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge and Yoshi’s Adventure. You can purchase your Universal Express Pass here (in Japanese only).

Whether you decide to shell out for a Universal Express Pass or not, remember that you will still need a Studio Pass (from ¥8,200, children aged 4-11 ¥5,400) in order to enter Universal Studios Japan.

For a virtual tour and more details on each attraction, check Super Nintendo World’s official website.
