Universal Studios Japan, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood will all have Nintendo-themed areas.
Nintendo confirmed in a press release today that attractions inspired by some of the company’s most iconic games will be making their way to three Universal Studios and Resorts parks – in Japan, Orlando and Hollywood.
“The creative visionaries behind Nintendo’s legendary worlds and characters are working together with the creative teams behind Universal’s blockbuster theme park attractions,” the release reads. “Their goal: 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. All of the adventure, fun and whimsy you experience through a screen will now be all around you – in breathtakingly authentic ways.”
According to the announcement, the areas will be “expansive, immersive, and interactive,” with shops, restaurants, and “multiple attractions.”
“Guests will feel as if they are playing inside their favorite games – this time in real life,” the press release reads. “There will be something for everyone – regardless of their age or gaming experience level.”
“Planning and creative work on these areas is well underway; they will open separately over the next several years.”
