One of the world’s biggest theme park brands is working on adding one of the world’s biggest entertainment brands to one of its parks.


Universal Studios Japan has been hard at work adding Nintendo properties to the theme park. In the following years, the characters will likely expand to the brand’s other global parks. There is not a whole lot of confirmed information about the park yet, but Nintendo fans should start planning their trips to Japan now.


So far, we know the park is being created by way of a partnership with Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of games including Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong.


There is no official opening date yet, but officials say they believe the park will be open in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The park will include multilevel environments, interactive areas, shops, restaurants and more. The park will also include new rides, one of which is Mario Kart-themed.


Like everything else Nintendo has its hands in, the new theme park addition should be incredible, and will provide one more reason to visit Universal Studios parks.

Amazon Fire TV Sticks Allow for Streaming Multiple Services

Cable is so expensive, sometimes it is easier to just pay monthly for subscription services like Hulu and Netflix. Some TVs come with those applications already installed, but, if not ,you have to use your laptop and a HDMI cord, which takes a while to set up. Instead, get an Amazon Fire TV Stick.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
