The world of Nintendo is coming to Universal theme parks

Universal and Nintendo have just delivered some bombshell news. Nintendo themed attractions will be built at all three Universal theme parks around the world, in Osaka, Japan, Hollywood, California and Orlando, Florida.

Nintendo is working collaboratively with Universal’s park designers to help create the attractions, that will be targeted at all ages, so older visitors can get their nostalgia fix, while youngsters can begin to learn about Nintendo’s illustrious history.

And besides, what Nintendo themed park would be complete without everyone’s favourite Italian plumber?

The attractions are said to be opening separately over the next several years, with each individual park announcing its Nintendo plans soon.
