Super Mario Comes to Universal Studios
Soon you'll be able to experience your favorite Nintendo series in person.
According to an official release:
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.
After seeing what they did with The Simpsons and Harry Potter, it's pretty cool to think about what kind of authentic experience Nintendo fans will be able to enjoy.
I for one am looking forward to dodging barrels thrown at me by a large ape, rescuing princesses, jumping on turtles' heads, and eating mushrooms that make me grow into Shaq-sized proportions.
