Nintendo’s made the first major announcement concerning their theme park partnership with Universal Studios since they revealed the deal a while back. Nintendo-themed areas will be built in Universal Studios Japan, Orlando and Hollywood.

That news came from a release and a video, the latter of which sits at the head of this post.

The press release includes a quick rundown of the news in bullet point form:

  • Nintendo-themed areas are coming to Universal Studios Japan, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.
  • These will be expansive, immersive and interactive. They will be highly themed and authentic environments filled with multiple attractions, shops and restaurants.
  • Guests will feel as if they are playing inside their favorite games – this time in real life.
  • 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.

Alright, Universal Studios, mark my family down for four tickets

I’m a sucker for theme parks, and that especially goes for Disney World. Mickey Mouse has been a staple in my life for as long as I can remember, and I still pick up random shirts and coffee mugs adorned with the ears whenever I see something I like.

While I’m not really into Nintendo merchandise, Mario and company have had a presence in my life going back as far as I can remember, too. Being able to take it all in in theme park form? Yes, that sounds fun. It especially sounds fun when I consider that there will be actual Nintendo-themed eateries, too.

We’re still a few years away from seeing these parks in real life. Start saving some vacation money now, friends.
