Although completely non-descript, Nintendo and Universal Studios recently announced a collaboration for new dedicated experiences and attractions based on beloved Nintendo games, characters, and worlds in the Universal theme parks.
It is expected that the new experiences will begin to appear and replace the Kid Zone section of the Universal Studios Florida theme park vs. an all new world but in a world where flying wizards and oversized gorillas all intermingle, you never know what could be on the way... storming Bowsers Castle? On a quest for Zelda's ocarina?
Although rumors swirl that Nintendo's presence could mean the end of Universal Orlando's Marvel attractions, that is definitely not the case. Reliable sources indicate that new Marvel attractions are planned for Universal's Islands of Adventure in the next 3-5 years, as their contract for Marvel rights is perpetual.
Look for Nintendo attractions to start to appear at Universal Studios Florida, Hollywood and Japan within the next few years.
