Hey Fellow Mario Fanatics, have you ever just walked outdoors and pretended to be in a real life level of Super Mario? NO?! Well yeah, I get it, I'm weird😏. Anyways, Nintendo seems to be expanding on their past where the brought Super Mario 3D World into real life in New York, and the rumors were true it's all gonna happen at Universal Parks Orlando and in Japan. That's right Mario Geeks nerds and obsessed fans alike, We're getting real life Mario. As shown in the background of Nintendo's Universal parks announcement video.
Their actual PR statement was on the 29th of November, however we didn't get the memo until today. Sorry. Anyhoo, here's the quotes from their PR site:

Imagine the fun of stepping into a larger-than-life Nintendo adventure. Gigantic Piranha Plants spring to life. Question blocks, power-ups and more surround you. And Mario and all his friends are there to pull you into a brand-new world.
You will enter an entire realm filled with iconic Nintendo excitement, gameplay, heroes and villains. And it is coming to three Universal theme parks around the globe.
The creative visionaries behind Nintendo’s legendary worlds and characters are working together with the creative teams behind Universal’s blockbuster theme park attractions. Their goal: to bring the characters, action and adventure of Nintendo video games to life within Universal theme parks. And to do so in new and innovative ways that capture what makes them so special. All of the adventure, fun and whimsy you experience through a screen will now be all around you – in breathtakingly authentic ways.
Nintendo-themed areas are coming to Universal Studios Japan, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.
These will be expansive, immersive and interactive. They will be highly themed and authentic environments filled with multiple attractions, shops and restaurants.
Guests will feel as if they are playing inside their favorite games – this time in real life.
There will be something for everyone – regardless of their age or gaming experience level.
Planning and creative work on these areas is well underway; they will open separately over the next several years.
The new themed areas come as the result of a global partnership between Universal Parks & Resorts and Nintendo – two icons of the entertainment world. Universal theme parks create incredibly popular family entertainment experiences for millions of people based on compelling characters, stories and innovative technology. Nintendo creates remarkable and imaginative games filled with captivating stories and beloved characters.

Besides all of this awesomeness, it's ironic that Universal Studios, at one time, many years ago; Sued Nintendo for Donkey Kong. Saying that Nintendo took Donkey Kong from King Kong. But that was years ago, I just find it ironic.
    Remember, Mario-Time All The Time!
