Good news gamers! Nintendo is planning to extend their valuable intellectual property by teaming up with the Universal Studious to bring the biggest gaming franchises into the real world. Nintendo's plan is to bring some new theme park attractions to the Universal Studios Japan.

The Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood will be the new areas for visitors and gamers to feel like they are truly inside their favorite games. The attractions were made accessible to all regardless of age and gaming experience.

According to Nintendo of America Official Twitter account, the Universal has already confirmed that Nintendo-themed attractions are now being developed at the theme parks located in Osaka, Orlando, and Hollywood.

"When [guests are] transported into that world-and see it as if they just walked into their game platform-I think that's gonna be an exciting time," said Universal's Mark Woodbury.

The specific launch date for the Nintendo-themed attractions was not yet revealed. However, the video's vibes suggest that fans and gamers might be able to hit up a real-life Nintendo world sooner.

"We're always looking for the next great idea and the next perfect place to take people,' Universal's Mark Woodbury said in a video announcement Tuesday. Nintendo fit the bill. I mean, it's natural. Together, we are building it with an eye for what guests will experience," Shigeru Miyamoto, a video game legend and co-creator of iconic franchises such as Donkey Kong and Mario said.

According to Forbes, Disney and Nintendo are quite similar regarding their pop-culture effect. And to create Nintendo attractions for fans and gamers at the Universal theme park, it's a good idea to build a full-fledged Nintendo Land which everyone could enjoy.

For the past decades, Nintendo has been releasing video games franchises such as Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon which is perfectly suited for the theme park treatment. And now everything has come into reality - thanks to the Universal Studios for helping the company bring these video games into reality.
