Theme Park University, an authority on theme parks around the world, has reported that Universal Studios has canceled plans to open a Pokemon and Legend of Zelda theme park at all of its major parks.
A few years ago, both Nintendo and Universal Studios officially announced Super Nintendo World, which currently only has a Mario section. Leaked documents after the announcement showed Universal had plans to prominently feature Nintendo at their upcoming “Fantastic Worlds” park at Orlando, a Pokemon area at the former KidsZone area, and a Legend of Zelda area at the Island of Adventure park.
These plans have reportedly been scrapped as Universal does not want to “triple down” and give Nintendo’s IP a presence equivalent to Harry Potter until it’s successful. The company also probably wants to avoid any major flops and is remaining extra cautious.
