Nintendo Themed Attractions Headed to Universal Studios

nintendoland1

Nintendo and Universal Studios have announced that they will be teaming up and bringing Nintendo themed attractions to their theme parks. Universal will create “spectacular, dedicated experiences based on Nintendo’s wildly popular games, characters and worlds.” The agreement brings two icons of entertainment together and represents a significant partnership for Nintendo as it expands the reach and popularity of its characters and intellectual property.

Could we see an actual NintendoLand soon? Only time will tell, but I can’t express how excited I am for this. More as it develops.

Playtonic games has announced that its upcoming 3D platformer Yooka-Laylee has hit $1M in funding faster than any other game that has appeared on Kickstarter. The title is also on its way to becoming the UK’s most successful game campaign ever. With over a month left in funding, we are eager to see just how much Yooka-Laylee hits. Yooka-Laylee is headed to PS4, XBOX One and Wii U sometime next year.

Congrats again to Platonic games.

Great news for Hyrule Warriors, the title has sold more than 1 million units worldwide since it launched. An impressive feat to say the least and here’s to 1 million more. I would be very interested to see if this warrants a sequel for the “Hyrule Warriors” series. Maybe something at E3?

Despite project Yooka-Laylee’s Kickstarter only starting yesterday, the game has already destroyed its initial Kickstarter goal. The game, which is already funded, will no release on every system on the same day. The team at Playtonic had to add even more stretch goals for its 3D platformer. The spiritual successor to the Banjo-Kazooie series already looks pretty nifty and we can’t wait to see where this game goes in the coming year.

Congrats to Playtonic.
