Not just for Japan

Nintendo has revealed a few more details on its ongoing partnership with Universal theme parks: namely that its upcoming attractions are coming to America. The two companies previously announced a partnership last May, and this past March it was revealed that the promised Nintendo-themed attractions would be coming to Universal Studios Japan in Osaka. Now Nintendo has confirmed that its Mario-themed areas will also be featured at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.

Unfortunately, there are still few details available on what these areas will be like. Nintendo describes them as “expansive, immersive, and interactive. They will be highly themed and authentic environments filled with multiple attractions, shops, and restaurants.” We also don’t know when you’ll be able to explore these areas, but Nintendo says that creative work is already under way, and all three will “open separately over the next several years.”

If you can’t wait that long for some real-life Nintendo action, you could always try to grab tickets to the upcoming Legend of Zelda-themed escape room.
