Behind where the Nintendo World is being built in USJ, there are two towers, not even on the USJ property, from what I can make out. But they appear to be both themed to what I can only assume is a "distant compliment" to the land now being built in USJ. They just look so "Nintendo World"-like.

Any idea what these two towers are? They stick out so much in
overhead shots of the new area being built. Just curious. :smile:


It's a garbage incinerator plant by Architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser.

^ Wow. What a way to get attention, huh? The whole place looks pretty cool, on it's outside.
Good for them to do something about a drab building like that. :smile:

Only in Japan would a garbage incinerator be a tourist attraction.

First leaks for Mario Kart.

I was getting all excited until...

The queue for the ride will include a tutorial segment for the augmented reality glasses that are rumored to be part of the ride. These glasses will allow the guests to see different effects during the race and they are believed to be a major part of the Super Nintendo World experience.

^ Think of it like they're making you do exercises, before you ride a coaster. =) I love Japan.

^That's not his point. His point is that you're going to have to wear some sort of glasses on the ride. We were all really hoping for an ACTUAL ride.
