Nintendo Bringing Its Brand of Fun to Universal Parks & Resorts

Nintendo-themed fun is coming to Universal parks in Hollywood, Orlando, and Osaka.

In an announcement today, Nintendo gave more details about its forthcoming themed attractions for Universal Parks & Resorts. The announcement was light on the specific details, but Nintendo's vision will be played out at three Universal properties: Universal Studios Japan, Universal Orlando Resort, and Universal Studios Hollywood. In its press release Nintendo says that the attractions will be "expansive, immersive and interactive", aimed at bringing your favorite games to life.

Nintendo looks to be bringing some of its game design ideas to its attractions.

"We are working very hard to create attractions that can be equally enjoyable to anybody, regardless of age," said Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto in the video announcement. "We are constantly amazed how the park developers are bringing the essence of our games to life in the real world. Together we are building it with an eye for what guests will actually experience."

The attractions will be rolling out at all three parks "over the next several years."

"Imagine the fun of stepping into a larger-than-life Nintendo adventure," Nintendo said in the press release. "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. You will enter an entire realm filled with iconic Nintendo excitement, gameplay, heroes and villains."

Miyamoto looks jazzed to be bringing the Mushroom Kingdom and other Nintendo worlds to life, so we look forward to seeing what Nintendo and Universal come up with.
