Nintendo may still be that company who continues to trailblaze new technology on the home console front, but in recent years they have been taking pains to make sure there are plenty of other streams of income to help sustain them. Their venture into toys with lines like Amiibo has proven to be successful, but they’ve also dabbled in mobile games, and very soon we’ll even be getting a Super Mario Bros. movie.
But in addition to all that, they have made their intentions known to expand their characters into the theme park arena. While there hasn’t been much in terms of official announcements from the Big N, there have been rumors of a Pokemon-themed area in and Zelda-themed at Universal Studios Orlando and Islands of Adventure.
If this is the first you’re hearing of this, don’t too attached, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. At least not yet. According to Theme Park University, Universal is pumping the breaks on incorporating multiple Nintendo worlds for now before it is proven successful. This comes on the heels of the Fast and Furious Supercharged attraction at Orland, which flopped.
So while this may be kind of a disappointment for now, but if their plans work on a smaller scale, we can see them ramp things up in the future. It’s all good, though. We’ve waited for decades for a Nintendo theme park. What’s another decade or two, right?
