Universal Parks and Resorts Announces Partnership with Nintendo
You thought one big Universal announcement was enough for this week? Think again.
In a post on the Universal Parks Blog, Tom Schroder had the following to say about the partnership.
“Universal Parks and Resorts have announced plans to bring the world of Nintendo to life at Universal theme parks. Together, these two storytelling giants will create spectacular, dedicated experiences based on Nintendo’s wildly popular games, characters and worlds.
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.
Universal theme parks offer incredibly popular, innovative themed family entertainment experiences based on compelling stories and characters – using powerful storytelling and innovative technology. Nintendo has created remarkable and imaginative worlds filled with captivating stories and beloved characters.
Now, for the first time, those stories and characters will be brought to life in entirely new ways—only at Universal theme parks. The immersive 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.”
This is an exciting development for Universal Parks and Resorts, as they continue to charge forward with new attractions and experiences at their parks.
The possibilities are endless. Nintendo has created some of the most recognizable video game characters of all time, including StarFox, Kirby, Donkey Kong, Mario, and of course the entire Pokemon Universe.
