Much like it has with the forthcoming Switch console, Nintendo continues to drip-feed information about its accord with Universal Parks & Resorts.
Today the gaming giant revealed it is bringing character-based attractions to three parks in Orlando, Hollywood and Osaka, Japan.
“We are constantly amazed how the park developers are bringing the essence of our games to life in the real world,” said Nintendo godfather Shigeru Miyamoto in a YouTube posted on Tuesday.
“Together, we are building it with an eye for what guests will actually experience.
"We are working very hard to create attractions that can be equally enjoyable to anybody regardless of age. Since we’re really bringing the world to life, I think Mario will feel like he can finally come home."
“We’re going to be able to create an entire Nintendo World,” added Mark Woodbury of Universal Creative, "and as we continued to develop that world became more immersive and more involved and more colorful and more exciting and more interactive.”
Miyamoto has promised more information in the coming weeks and months, although there’s still no specifics on the attractions and the opening dates at the parks in question.
