Universal outlines its plans for Nintendo-themed lands
November 29, 2016, 8:28 AM ·
Universal Parks & Resorts today outlined the new Nintendo-themed lands it will be bringing to three of its theme park resorts in the next few years.
Nintendo lands will be coming to Universal Studios Japan, Universal Orlando, and Universal Studios Hollywood, the company announced today. (That means the tiny Universal Studios Singapore, which lacks expansion space, again will be left out, as it was for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.) In a video posted by the company, Universal Creative President Mark Woodbury and Nintendo's legendary game creator Shigeru Miyamoto talked about the companies' partnership and the process of developing plans for the parks.
Like a video game, you have to experience the video multiple times, not just to see what the two creators are saying, but also to examine the background for details that might make their way into the lands.
Universal's Nintendo lands will be interactive, with multiple attractions, shops, and restaurants, Universal said. "You’ll feel as if you’re playing inside your favorite games – in real life," Universal said in a press release. And, consistent with a good gaming platform, "There will be something for everyone—regardless of their age or gaming experience level."
Universal promises individual announcements from each resort detailing its Nintendo land, coming "soon."
