Scheduled to open for Mario and Sonic's appearance in four years.

Universal Studios has announced ambitious plans for their Japanese park's Nintendo exhibit.

The Nintendo attraction is slated to open in 2020, timed to coincide with Tokyo's hosting of the Summer Olympics. Universal is anticipating spending roughly 40bn yen (about US$350m at current market rates) on the project.

Observers have noted that the project is to be similar in scale to the Harry Potter worlds currently operating at Universal Studios.

Actually Nintendo is not spending any of this.  It's Universal spending big to promote Nintendo.

Was I foolish to hope that a Nintendo Land was coming to U. S.? I didn't even know their was a park over there.

2020?!  Well, shit, won't Nintendo be DOOMED by then? ;)

If they can find room in Orlando (good freaking luck with that thanks to the House of Mouse), this'll be there as well.
