Just less than a day after announcing Skull Island: Reign of Kong at Universal Orlando, Universal Parks & Resorts announces a partnership with Nintendo to bring the video game company’s most famous characters and games to life as major attractions. As far as gaming goes, nothing is more iconic and classic than the world of Nintendo, making this agreement a massive deal for Universal.
Bringing in outside intellectual properties has brought Universal Parks & Resorts a ton of success including the massively popular Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley, The Simpsons and so much more to both Orlando and Hollywood.
No future plans or projects have been announced at this point and there is no timetable for when a major attraction will see the light of day at any of the Universal Parks around the world. Furthermore, there was no information on whether or not Nintendo would be apart of Universal Studios Japan, Singapore or Beijing, which are licensed but not owned by Comcast NBCUniversal, but it would be incredibly stupid for Universal to not take advantage of Nintendo attractions in Asia, especially Japan.
With the reach of Nintendo through multiple generations at this point, Universal should have another huge victory in the future.
