Universal confirms Nintendo lands

Universal Parks & Resorts and Nintendo will bring the fun of Nintendo games to life with expansive, highly themed environments to three Universal theme parks around the globe. Guests will enter a world of excitement where it will feel as if they are playing inside their favorite Nintendo games. The creative visionaries behind Nintendo’s legendary worlds and characters are working together with the creative teams behind Universal’s blockbuster theme park attractions. Mark Woodbury, President of Universal Creative, and Shigeru Miyamoto with Nintendo, Creator of Mario, shared details of the goal to bring the characters, action and adventure of Nintendo video games to life within Universal theme parks. The new themed areas come as the result of a global partnership between Universal Parks & Resorts and Nintendo. Universal theme parks create incredibly popular family entertainment experiences for millions of people based on compelling characters, stories and innovative technology. Nintendo creates remarkable and imaginative worlds filled with captivating stories and beloved characters. Each Universal theme park will announce details of its specific Nintendo areas. The first such announcement will come soon.

Some of the most loved Nintendo characters and worlds are set to jump out of the computer screen and into the theme park when Universal unveils three new realms over the coming years at its properties in the USA and Japan.

Guests at Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Orlando (park to be confirmed) and Universal Studios Japan are promised themed environments filled with “iconic Nintendo excitement, gameplay, heroes and villains. Imagine the fun of stepping into a larger-than-life Nintendo adventure. Gigantic Piranha Plants spring to life. Question blocks, power-ups and more surround you. And Mario and all his friends are there to pull you into a brand-new world.”

Each Universal park will announce details of its specific Nintendo areas in due course, but each will include highly themed and authentic environments filled with multiple attractions, shops and restaurants.

“Guests will feel as if they are playing inside their favourite games,” we are told. “There will be something for everyone – regardless of their age or gaming experience level.”

Planning and creative work is apparently already well underway, and each area will open separately over the next few years.
