Nintendo get into the theme park business?

May 7, 2015, 5:01 AM

Ars Technica has posted an article on Nintendo's return to profit... Once you get through all the stuff on Wii and DS performance, you get to this spot of news:

Continuing with this expansion out from its core video games market, Nintendo today dropped in some exciting news alongside its financial report, announcing a partnership with Universal Parks & Resorts to create Nintendo-themed attractions at Universal's parks. Universal currently has theme parks in Los Angeles and Orlando in the US, Osaka in Japan, and in Singapore, with new parks on the way in Moscow and Beijing. While there isn't much detail on the partnership at the moment—more information is promised in the future—colour me extremely excited and hopeful for Mario- and Yoshi-based rollercoasters, Mushroom-based foodstuffs, and hundreds of wild Pikachu freely roaming the park to play with at will.

Any thoughts?

Looks like someone from TPA certainly had the right idea!
