I mean, this isn't exactly being shown JUST to Japan though. The NA Nintendo YouTube, and the NA Universal Park Twitter accounts are all officially posting this (along with bringing global artists and not those from Japan directly).
Yup, I think they handled things extremely well; and it'll get people hooked and waiting for more.More news coming in February. With the pics of the app and the bands, this was already more than I was expecting today.
And the music video is just a commercial; a hype machine (and a clever way to use 3D assets created by Universal Creative lol). It's not really supposed to convey any real info. Just get people hyped.
I don’t know...it was shared immediately on the Universal Orlando page, features an English pop star, with English lyrics.
It's a fun song. Why not share it with the world?I mean, this isn't exactly being shown JUST to Japan though. The NA Nintendo YouTube, and the NA Universal Park Twitter accounts are all officially posting this (along with bringing global artists and not those from Japan directly).
It goes without saying but I think the way they worded it on Twitter confirms Singapore is last to open as expected.I think they handled today quite well; considering this was for all intents, the blowout of marketing. We should start to see USJ and NintendoPR start to trickle out details over the course of the next few months. Especially as how USH and UOR's Twitter accounts have now said their thing, it's time for things to move forward. Even if we don't have a firm date, I do think this is a good start. It's as @Alicia somewhat said too, today was about the core announcement of the Bands and the SNW app. And even then, USJ got to finally handle the year brand alongside that.
This sounds like Universal “fixed” everything “wrong” with wands. You have to buy one per person, not one per family. And there’s no motion, which is always a little finicky.Sounds like Power Up Bands will only be available for purchase. Not free. This is essentially SNW's wands. (Let's hope they don't cost that much though.)
If they can implement Switchs into the resorts, that is a huge plus for families.– Opening before the Summer Olympics at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka

I think people are missing the biggest thing...
I dont personally see the active bands being as popular as wands. Especially if the games require actual physical movement Like jumping and running. The kids might be into it; but a lot of teens/adults will be too lazy. Way too early to say until we see what exactly the value is, and how exciting the games are. Mario hats have potential to take off, but they don’t have the same current variety of Mickey Ears. It will be curious if they are more customizable, beyond just the read hat.Buzz seems to be good online, everyone seeming excited about the park/land so that’s really what this intended to do. Grab peoples attention and give then wanting a little more. Loving everything in seeing so far.
But ya with the power up bands, Mario hats, this IP could very well be more profitable than Potter. This is gonna he such a huge W for Universal that Disney just cannot compete with
