Further to reports this morning about Nintendo Land coming to Universal Japan’s Park, now sparks speculation surrounding the previously reported land bought by the Universal Orlando Resort. Comcast Corp, the parent company of Universal Orlando, reportedly acquired 475 acres of land for $130 million in February.
The land acquired is adjacent to the existing park, but the plans of what will be there are unknown at the moment. When Comcast were asked about the plans for the land they replied with “the land is a real strategic acquisition for long term down the road”. With the news today of Nintendo Land arriving to Universal Japan in 2020, it could mean that the plans for the recently acquired land at Universal Orlando may also be used by Nintendo.
As with all rumours, we don’t know for certain, but with the recent plans announced today it would seem a likely scenario.
