Nintendo-themed areas are coming to Universal Studios Japan, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood. These will be expansive, immersive and interactive and will be highly themed and authentic environments filled with multiple attractions, shops and restaurants. The new themed areas come as the result of a global partnership between Universal Parks & Resorts and Nintendo – two icons of the entertainment world.
One of the most horrifying and wickedly gruesome shows in television history is bleeding off the screen. “American Horror Story,” FX’s critically-acclaimed, Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning television series that has terrorised viewers for five suspenseful instalments, will come to life at “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood, beginning in September.
Universal Studios Hollywood unlocked the iconic “Don’t’ Open, Dead Inside” doors to usher in its all-new “The Walking Dead” permanent daytime attraction, based on AMC’s top-rated television series and the most watched show in cable television history. The attraction officially opens to the public on July 4th.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will open at Universal Studios Hollywood on April 7th 2016. More than five years in the making, and inspired by J.K. Rowling’s compelling stories and characters that were brought to life in the Warner Bros. films, the attraction is being masterfully recreated with impeccable detail as a real-world interpretation at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Nintendo and Universal Parks & Resorts have announced plans to bring the world of Nintendo to life at Universal theme parks – creating spectacular, dedicated experiences based on Nintendo’s wildly popular games, characters and worlds. The agreement brings two icons of entertainment together and represents a significant partnership for Nintendo as it expands the reach and popularity of its characters and intellectual property.
