CityWalk at Universal Studios Hollywood is getting a Super Nintendo World shop ahead of the land’s early 2023 opening.
Without offering other details, Universal Hollywood’s official Twitter account posted this Thursday morning:

Super Nintendo World merchandise has already been sold inside the theme park at Feature Presentation and the Upper Lot’s Studios Store, but this addition would allow CityWalk visitors to buy Nintendo swag without a theme park ticket.
Any Nintendo-branded store is a rare sight, especially in the U.S. Nintendo New York, a two-story retail outlet at Rockefeller Plaza, is the only one of its kind in North America.
Super Nintendo World is still officially scheduled to open in early 2023. Universal has not indicated whether the land could open sooner for previews, but animatronics throughout the land have recently begun testing.
