Nintendo and Universal Parks & Resorts shared some new details today on the early insights on their upcoming collaboration. Last year, Nintendo and Universal revealed a partnership that would bring Nintendo-themed attractions to Universal theme parks. You can also check out a new video released on the historic collaboration below.
The new video features footage of Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto and Universal Creative’s Mark Woodbury on the upcoming attractions for Universal Parks & Resorts. The effort will bring in larger-than-life Nintendo attractions to the parks. This includes Nintendo-themed areas at Universal Studios Japan, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.
According to Universal Studios, these areas will be expansive, immersive and interactive. They will include highly themed and authentic environments that will offer multiple attractions, shops and restaurants. The hope is that attendees will feel like they are inside their favorite games. The new video offers a hint of what fans can potentially expect from these upcoming Nintendo areas and attractions.
Currently, these attractions and areas are still in their planning and creative stages. These areas will open at the Universal parks over the course of the next several years. The first announcement on specific Nintendo areas for each Universal theme park will be coming soon.
