More than a year ago, Nintendo and Universal Parks & Resorts announced that the companies were collaborating on building Nintendo-themed attractions at Universal's parks. While they're still not providing much in the way of concrete details, the pair have released a video that broadly speaks to what they're hoping to accomplish. Spoiler alert: They want it to be fun.

In the video below, you can see Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto and Universal's Mark Woodbury talking vaguely about their goals. Essentially, the parks – which will be at Universal's Hollywood, Orlando, and Japan locations – will be A) interactive B) fun for all ages and C) will have multiple attractions. 

They're still in the planning and creative phases, and the parks will open over the next several years.


Our Take
As a person who enjoys having fun, this sounds like it's in my wheelhouse. I only hope that it's a manageable amount of fun, and not so much fun that I become a husk of a person after leaving.
