Earlier today, Nintendo’s creative director Shigeru Miyamoto and Universal Creative president Mark Woodbury explained the vision of Nintendo coming to three Universal theme parks (in Orlando, Hollywood and Osaka, Japan). This video is an update for the announced partnership between both companies made last year.
According to a press release by Nintendo, the goal of both companies is “to bring the characters, action and adventure of Nintendo video games to life within Universal theme parks. And to do so in new and innovative ways that capture what makes them so special. All of the adventure, fun and whimsy you experience through a screen will now be all around you – in breathtakingly authentic ways.”
Though nothing is specific in terms of the attractions that will be shown at the parks, both Miyamoto and Woodbury said people can expect the upcoming attractions to be “expansive, immersive and interactive” with various attractions, restaurants and shops based on Nintendo’s intellectual properties, with something for everyone to experience no matter how old or how much people know about games. “Guests will feel as if they are playing inside their favorite games – this time in real life.” Will we finally see Super Mario World or the first stage of Super Mario Bros. in real life?
Universal Studios and Nintendo are already working on the planing and creative side of the attractions.
