Imagine the fun of stepping into a larger-than-life Nintendo adventure. Gigantic Piranha Plants spring to life. Question blocks, power-ups and more surround you. And Mario and all his friends are there to pull you into a brand-new world.
You will enter a realm filled with iconic Nintendo excitement, gameplay, heroes and villains. And it is coming to three Universal theme parks around the globe.
Nintendo is working together with the creative teams behind Universal's blockbuster theme park attractions. Their goal: to bring the characters, action and adventure of Nintendo video games to life within Universal theme parks. And to do so in new ways that capture what makes them so special:
Nintendo-themed areas are coming to Universal Studios Japan, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood. These will be expansive and interactive. They will be highly themed and authentic environments filled with multiple attractions, shops and restaurants.
Nintendo says that 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.
The new themed areas come as the result of a partnership between Universal Parks & Resorts and Nintendo.
Each Universal theme park will announce details of its specific Nintendo areas, and Nintendo promised that the first such announcement will come soon.
