    Personally, I really hope to god that it's the UOR version; as it would do wonders for Universal Hollywood in more way's than one.

    That's pretty good. Made me smile, actually. :)...Don't get me wrong . Yoshii will be a damn good ride. But I didn't want expectations to go through the roof without pointing out that it's aimed at kids & families. It's not going to have the thrill factor like Mario. It will be about the same ride length, 4 minutes apx. , as Mario, but on a much shorter length, so that tells you something about the speed involved. It would be a nice addition to Orlando, if it makes the cut. It'll help alleviate the dearth of kids/family attractions. But it's just not the type of ride I get overly excited about, though I'm sure it will be fun & enjoyable. Kids & families will love it.

    To personally ask, was there any information on the particular art-style of the attraction? That may be an interesting thing to note, as Yoshi has recently done Wool and is currently creating a game similar to the design of the Paper Mario series in scenic.

    It's just a question that I'm curious of, because I wouldn't be surprised if it was more in-line with Mario Kart and Donkey Kong's designs of the game series as it stands now.

    I'm not a gamer, so I can't really answer that comparison question. :)

    Same style as the Nintendo World trailer or different art style?

    Seemed somewhat similar to the trailer, but I'm not much of a judge since I don't have any experience with the Nintendo IP. So my opinion on style doesn't really mean much.

    I believe so. Can't be sure. But if you read the sign its for Nintendo on the fence and is just a small section of the land being use. I expect the walls to expand later for more construction.

    Of note: this pic was also taken 3 days before the ground breaking ceremony.

    I am glad to see Haru as an official contributer for IU.

    Can't wait to see more from him!

    Boy, that's going to be the heavy side of the park for attendance with those two powerhouse IP's next to each other.
