Universal Shares New Hints of Nintendo Plans for Theme Parks

Back in May of 2015 Universal Parks announced that they would be partnering with Nintendo for several theme park developments, but things have been quiet on the plans since.  Now that a year and a half has passed, Universal has some additional details and updates on what we will be seeing in the parks.

Through Universal's official blog and the video embedded above, a fair amount of details were released.  However, if you're looking for specifics of what will be added and when, well, you'll have to wait a bit longer.

Universal is saying that Nintendo themed lands will be built at Universal Studios Hollywood, Japan, and at the Universal Orlando Resort (assumed to be in Universal Studios Florida).  The lands are described as "expansive, immersive and interactive," highly themed and containing "multiple attractions, shops and restaurants."  So from that we can be sure that we won't just be seeing a new ride at each park, this is for sure totally new themed sections based on the world of Nintendo.

The additions will be aimed at all sections of the public, not just kids or adults, and be attractive regardless of gaming experience.  The expansions at each park will open independently of each other, and the blog post mentions that the announcement of the full details of the first will come sooner than later.  I can't wait!
