New locations for Nintendo Parks include Orlando, Osaka, California and Singapore.
Controlled by the NBCUniversal media conglomerate, the Universal Orlando amusement park in Florida, USA, will be replenished with a new large tenant. In 2023, a theme park based on the characters of the Japanese game console manufacturer Nintendo will open its doors here.
For Universal Orlando, the second largest entertainment venue in the city, after "Disney World", it will be the fourth theme park. The opening will take place as part of a major campaign to expand the entertainment resort and double its area. The park will cover an area of about 3 million square meters, a few kilometers from Universal Orlando and will join a large entertainment space that also includes Adventure Islands and Volcano Bay water park.
As part of the creation of a new megaproject, Greater Orlando will receive more than 14,000 jobs, in addition to the park's 25,000 current employees. It was previously known that nintendo amusement park will also appear in Osaka.
In the third largest city in Japan, the opening will take place in the summer of 2020. The park also belongs to NBC Universal, will be unique in visitor engagement and life-size cult video game opportunities. Park visitors will receive special devices at the entrance that will connect to a mobile application and “connect” their owners to the world of video games. Other details of the new project are still being kept under wraps. Singapore and California are also cited as locations that are considering building theme parks based on Nintendo games.
