Nintendo, one of the world's largest video game companies, has announced on Tuesday that they will be opening Nintendo-themed attractions to three Universal Studios parks across the globe.

The press statement made by Nintendo stated that they will feature these attractions in the Universal parks in Orlando, Florida, Los Angeles, and Osaka, Japan.

This partnership between two of the world's icons in the entertainment world was announced last May, promising their customers a whole new level of fun and adventure in the coming years by bringing their beloved Nintendo games to life. Details concerning what specific characters they will use and when the parks will open be will be announced at a future date, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Guests will expect a park-within-a-park experience in these locations, much like the popular Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Orlando. It includes themed rides, restaurants, and other multiple attractions that will make people feel like they're in a real-life Nintendo adventure.

Both the creative teams of Nintendo and Universal are working hand-in-hand to bring a highly realistic Nintendo experience, regardless of their guests' age and experience level.  All the plans are still in progress, and the parks will open separately over the coming years.

In a video hinting the collaboration, Nintendo video game creator Shigeru Miyamoto said, "We are constantly amazed how the park developers are bringing the essence of our games to life in the real world. Together we are building it with an eye for what guests will actually experience."

Nintendo fans should watch out for other upcoming announcements, most especially the characters they will be featuring. There are tons of iconic Nintendo characters to fill the planned parks like Mario, Zelda, and Donkey Kong.

"Imagine the fun of stepping into a larger-than-life Nintendo adventure. Gigantic Piranha Plants spring to life. Question blocks, power-ups and more surround you. And Mario and all his friends are there to pull you into a brand-new world," Nintendo said.
