A few months ago many lost their tiny little minds when Universal Parks revealed that they were to partner with Nintendo on an upcoming project. At the time news was vague regarding exactly what fans would see, but it was widely rumoured a ‘Nintendo Land’ would pop up, much like the Simpsons section of the Orlando Universal park.
It looks like we were right! Not only that, but the new video featuring Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto and Universal Creative’s Mark Woodbury posted today reveals that Universal Orlando Resort wont be alone is welcoming Mario and friends, with Universal Studios Hollywood, and Universal Studios Japan also seeing Nintendo expansions. Wa-hoo!
We’re told the new areas, which are already underway and will open “over the next several years” will be “expansive, immersive and interactive” with “highly themed and authentic environments filled with multiple attractions, shops and restaurants”.
Universal promises “to bring the characters, action and adventure of Nintendo video games to life within Universal theme parks. And to do so in new and innovative ways that capture what makes them so special.”
So excited for this. Might have to make a return trip to Orlando when that warp-pipe pops up.
