Universal Studios Japan broke ground on the Nintendo theme park back in June 2017, and we heard more about the experience of being inside a real-life video game earlier this year. There was even a music video for the attraction; a catchy tune from Galantis featuring Charli XCX.

The park will feature wearable, Nintendo character-themed wrist bands called “Power Up Bands” that work alongside a smartphone app, offering “interactive experiences” such as collecting digital coins, battling bosses, and competing with others. The app also includes an overhead map of the location, and visitors can create profiles and unlock achievements.
