It could be that this is the start of something mysterious. It could also be that Nintendo never really meant for this area to be a “bonus level” of sorts, only a part of the park that’ll be delivered once the Super Mario Land bit gets a sustained test run.
At the moment, the app for the amusement park refers to the amusement park as Super Nintendo World, most of the time. Every once in a while, though, the app refers to the user’s location as “Super Mario Land.”
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.

It’s entirely possible that Nintendo is saving this expansion for a point at which they’re able to release a new Donkey Kong game for Nintendo Switch in the future. Even NEWER than what we saw in December of 2020, that is to say. This would coincide with the 40th anniversary of the original Donkey Kong game, released in arcades all the way back in the year 1981!
Datamined details from the Universal Japan Super Nintendo World mobile app showed Donkey Kong elements that hadn’t yet been enabled for in-world play. Achievements, puzzle pieces, and a full family portrait (with Donkey Kong and the Mario Family) could be seen.
