    Yeah, that's simply his wish list.

    I think the most practical and obvious first Nintendo themed attraction will be something based on Mario and Friends.

    I agree. Not having Mario in "Nintendo Land" is like not having Mickey Mouse in Disneyland.

    Here are my two main hopes for Nintendo Land.

    1. Have a high ride count. Don't wast too much space on retail. I want our small park to be a true full day experience.

    2. Have most rides focus on animatronics and physical sets over screens. This could be a nice contrast to the rest of the park. This could give some much needed variety.

    If they do both of those, Nintendo Land could elevate our park to the next level.

    Expect this in 2018 or later. Not 2017.

    I agree with AlexShow. Attraction development takes a loooooooong time. They just acquired the rights to Nintendo. Universal Creative will spend the next 18-24 months pitching ideas and developing concepts. I wouldn't expect anything in Hollywood for at least 4 years.

    Personally, I don't want any Nintendo ideas or projects rushed. I want them to develop an amazing concept to blow us all away. They don't have to knock every project out in 2 years, I wanna see them take their time on it.

    Hearing Nintendo land will be Mario centric. Hopefully they get some good ideas out of that!

    Why am I not surprised. Also, Miyamoto himself has stated hes working very close with the Creative teams to bring these expriences become what they're meant to be. Which is great news.

    At least that confirms no Super Mario-charged. HoHopefully whatever they add won't break down all the time.

    I'll be posting this on two threads because its going to be important for Hollywoods.
    ______________________________________________________________________

    An individual from OU named Imagin78 has gotten a really interesting survey and he went into a little detail on two topics there. I'll be quoting him for it and giving links to his posts.
     

    Now, both of these are rather interesting. It does seem this is Universals true response to Fantasyland in some shape or form. Then, there's the obvious. Its becoming more likely that Mario Kart is coming, especially how it went apparently into detail. And the fact they're asking how big the theming could ever go is going to make this truly something. Coupled with the fact of enclosing it again much like another successful endeavor; Diagon Alley. Its making me really excited about this.

    I have all the faith in the world that Universal is gonna do an epic job with any Nintendo themed lands or attractions. A lot riding on this, it's timeless, popular with almost everyone in every gender and age category, and so much to work with. Not to mention that Nintendo is very protective of its IP, so no doubt in my mind that it'll be incredible.

    And it seems hes excited for it. With him saying of the relationship being really close, it makes me really excited.

    What I would like to see besides Mario Kart is an indoor coaster themed to the mine cart levels from the Donkey Kong games. Just play the levels from Donkey Kong Country and 64. They just scream, "MAKE ME A RIDE!!!"

    While not having directly to do with the land itself, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has passed away today... R.I.P. It's a sad day in geek culture indeed.

    Its a shame we lost a great in the videogame market and it sucks he won't be able to see it. But atleast he has a great legacy of games that will continue to have a impact from his company.
