The Legend of Zelda may soon transform from “realistic” to “real,” because on Thursday gaming giant Nintendo and Universal Parks & Resorts announced the popular video game company will be bringing its characters, themes and gaming worlds to various Universal theme parks.
“Now, for the first time, those stories and characters will be brought to life in entirely new ways,” the companies said in a joint statement.
Specific concepts will need to be hashed out between the two sides, but they touted what will be “spectacular, dedicated experiences based on Nintendo’s wildly popular games, characters and worlds.”
Universal Parks & Resorts, owned by NBCUniversal, has theme parks in Hollywood, Orlando, Osaka, Japan and Singapore. Nintendo is a Japanese company in Kyoto.
Nintendo also released earnings on Thursday that showed the company made an annual profit for the first time since 2011.
