Make room for Mario, Princess Peach and probably a lot of Pokemon the next time you visit a Universal theme-park. Nintendo and Universal Parks & Resorts today announced plans to bring the world of Nintendo to life at Universal theme parks across the world. The company hopes to create, “spectacular, dedicated experiences based on Nintendo’s wildly popular games, characters and worlds,” according to the company’s announcements earlier this morning.
The agreement brings two icons of entertainment together and represents a significant partnership for Nintendo as it expands the reach and popularity of its characters and intellectual property.
The two companies stopped short of outlining any exact plans that will hit the park over the next few years. The new experiences will include “major attractions” at Universal’s theme parks and will feature “Nintendo’s most famous characters and games,”. More details will be announced in the future, as the Nintendo and Universal creative teams work to create specific concepts. We imagine that Kirby would be hanging out in the food-court.
