Nintendo and Universal Studios Tie up for Attractions Based on Games

by Shane McGlaun

With the exception of collectibles and the occasional bad movie or TV show, Nintendo has kept a death grip on the use of its characters outside of its games. One of the biggest licensing deals ever for the gaming firm is their new tie up with Universal Studios in a deal that will see games and characters in Universal parks around the world.

I hope this means that some day we’ll be playing real life Mario Kart as a ride at Universal Studios. Exactly which characters will be turned into attractions and such we don’t know, but the deal covers pretty much every Nintendo character.

That means Mario will certainly be represented. I hope they use Donkey Kong too. Universal says that it will create, “spectacular, dedicated experiences based on Nintendo’s wildly popular games, characters, and worlds.” We’ll have to wait to hear more details later.
