Nintendo and Universal Announce Partnership for Theme Park Attractions!

Nintendo and Universal have announced, what on the surface, appears to be a monster partnership today. Talk about completely out of left field with this one, but the possibilities are endless!

In the deal, Universal Studios theme parks around the world will be working with Nintendo to bring some of the most iconic and loved video game characters and worlds to life in the form of new attractions. Just what they'll be is anyone's guess, but you can get they're going to be extremely interesting given Universal's recent history with new rides.

“Nintendo has created remarkable and imaginative worlds filled with captivating stories and beloved characters. Now, for the first time, those stories and characters will be brought to life in entirely new ways – only at Universal theme parks.” a press release said.

There's not really much else to go on with this one, other than that and we don't know if this deal is only for Universal's parks in Singapore and Japan, but seems unlikely they'd limit it to just those two given the scope of Nintendo's popularity in the US as well. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, is slated to talk with investors in a conference call later today so perhaps a bit more information will be given on this then. If not, we'll just have to wait for the official release from Universal and Nintendo about just what all this is about.

That said, what properties would you like to see Nintendo and Universal bring to life? Legend of Zelda? Mario? Metroid? There's literally too many to list here so definitely let us know what you'd love to see in the comments!

For now, stay tuned as we'll be updating this one as soon as new info comes out and of course, follow along with us on Twitter, Google+, Tumblr and Facebook for all the latest!
