Universal Studios Japan No Limit Parade will feature Pokémon and Mario

The event, which has been cancelled numerous times finally has the go ahead and is shaping up to be a huge event

After a string of delays for the No Limit parade at Universal Studios Japan, a new date has finally been announced. The event will also include Pokémon and the world’s most famous plumber, Mario.

Super Mario Bros and Pokémon characters featured in the opening of Japan’s Super Nintendo World back in 2021. To mark an extension of that collaboration these characters are also going to hit the No Limit parade on March 1, 2023.

These fan favourite characters won’t be alone, various others will be featured such as characters from Hello Kitty, Sing!, Minions, Sesame Street, and The Peanuts gang. As with any parade, music will accompany the show, including a range from dance music to 1960s rock hits. During the parade route, the floats and characters will stop and live entertainers will invite viewers to dance with them. So if you have ever dreamed of dancing with Pikachu, this could be your chance.

Parade day floats

Characters from Super Mario Bros will debut in the world’s first Mario Kart-themed float — let’s hope it doesn’t drive over any loose banana peels. The float will feature Mario, Luigi, Toad, Koopa, Yoshi and Princess Peach. A group of dancers will also occupy the float to get the crowd excited during its parade stops.

As for the Pokèmon float, this will feature large Pokèmon balls and a ton of Pokèmon. These include a Charizard which can emit smoke and flap its wings, a dancing Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and other Pokèmon friends. The float will also emit bubbles and confetti galore to set the party mood.

This will mark the first daytime parade for the park since it had to halt shows due to Covid-19. The timing for a Mario themed float works well given the upcoming release of the Super Mario Bros movie.
