Nintendo has joined hands with Universal Studios Theme Parks to create expansive new venues featuring some of their most popular characters in three Universal Studios Parks in Japan and the United States. Nintendo-themed areas will be making their way to Universal Studios Japan, Universal Orlando, and Universal Studios Hollywood, each offering an immersive park experience based on core characters from some of the most popular games by the multinational video game company.

With an array of themed attractions, shops, and restaurants, the park promises the areas to be exciting, interactive areas that will make guests of all ages feel as though they've stepped into the world of their favorite Nintendo games. The specifics are still unknown, and for the moment Nintendo fans are left wondering whether they'll see characters like Mario, Link, Kirby, and Pikachu at the parks.
