Earlier this month, Universal Studios Japan updated their mobile app with a new section for Super Nintendo World – which showcases the park’s story and map with new Super Mario artwork. Well, it appears like Mario and his Mushroom Kingdom friends might not be alone for long in the theme park…
Dataminers have reportedly discovered what appear to be unused Donkey Kong art assets within the mobile app, as well! The assets feature a fresh batch of artwork of both Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong, along with a Rambi symbol and other stickers.
You can take a closer look at the datamined images below:
Universal Japan's #SuperNintendoWorld mobile app was datamined and several Donkey Kong related stickers were found, all but confirming the existence of the rumored DK expansion.

Of course, we’ve already heard murmurs about a Donkey Kong expansion heading to Super Nintendo World in Japan, and this just appears to solidify those rumors! We’ll just have to wait and see what comes out of these assets in the future.
