Nintendo and Universal Parks & Resorts have announce plans to bring the world of Nintendo to life at Universal theme parks.

The announcement does not say which Universal Studio locations will feature Nintendo properties only that the two companies are now working together.

More details will be provided at a future time says the two companies.

Guess Iwata wasn’t kidding when they said they would be licensing out their properties more.

    I always thought that Nintendo should do theme parks, but Universal is not the right fit for them. Outside of Harry Potter and the Simpsons, the rest of their parks is almost exclusively aimed at adults, I mean their Halloween Horror Nights are full of blood and gore and I dont like to think that soon it might include a zombie Mario.
