No, it’s not a movie.
Nintendo announced that their classic characters will be joining the other attractions at Universal Theme Parks. According to the official press release, “The immersive experiences will include major attractions at Universal’s theme parks and will feature Nintendo’s most famous characters and games.”
According to Universal they will be creating “spectacular, dedicated experiences based on Nintendo’s wildly popular games, characters and worlds.” So does this mean we get a Nintendo World at Universal?
Unfortunately I think this is probably going to be the replacement for ‘Marvel Super Hero Island” in Orlando’s Island of Adventures. Ever since Disney acquired the rights to Marvel there has been speculation about the future status of the attraction.
There have been rumors that the two companies have been discussing the future of the Island, but nothing concrete. All we know is that Disney seems to have trouble using the world ‘Marvel’ when it comes to anything related to Disney World. And that Disney World is the only one currently missing ‘Marvel’ (to my knowledge) attractions.Just think how much fun some of the games could translate into Squirtle Water Slide, A Mario Kart Racetrack, what about a Metroid Space Battle? The possibilities are endless, and they may even give Disney World a pause for thought.
