KYOTO, Japan and ORLANDO, Florida (May 7, 2015) – Nintendo and Universal Parks & Resorts today announced plans to bring the world of Nintendo to life at Universal theme parks – creating 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.

Is it like the Monster Hunter/Keroro event attractions, or is it something more permanent?

Because if it's the later, I'm hyped.

Needs a console marketshare roller coaster.

Seriously though, this is cool! Nintendo properties seem perfect for it.

Hell yea, I'm freaking happy I decided to work abroad. Glad to hear this.

Speaking of which, not the first time Nintendo and Universal work together. They used the backlot for the Wizard:
