What’s Going On With Nintendo’s Theme Park At Universal Studios?
Still, as the initial report points out, that doesn’t mean that the Florida park, or other Universal Studios locations, won’t be getting Nintendo-themed attractions. It’s likely that the Florida location will still move forward with Super Mario World plans, but maybe not based on the original designs. Another benefit of opening Nintendo sections at multiple parks is that they could create a destination draw for dedicated fans. In other words, while the main attraction at the new Universal Studios location will likely feature a central hub based on Super Mario Bros, it could break off into wings dedicated to, say, Kirby, Yoshi and Zelda. The Orlando park could then have a similar hub world, but with nodes dedicated to Donkey Kong and Pokemon. Yet another destination could focus on Pikmin and Mario Kart .
