ORLANDO, Fla. — Universal Parks & Resorts and Nintendo are joining forces to add video game characters to the theme park company’s resorts.

Company officials said Tuesday that Nintendo-themed areas will be added to Universal parks in Orlando, Los Angeles and Osaka, Japan.

Few other details were given, including when they would open and the types of experience that would be offered.

A Universal spokesman didn’t respond to an email seeking further details.

A news release says the Nintendo areas will include attractions, restaurants and shops.

The areas will open separately at the parks over the next several years.
