Fans within Universal helped Super Nintendo World come to life

Universal Creative, the team building Super Nintendo World in collaboration with the legendary Japanese videogame maker, seem an easy partner in the construction of the park, thanks to fans within the team, according to Shinya Takahashi, Nintendo’s managing executive officer.

In a recent interview with The Verge, Takahashi says that it helps because “there were a lot of Nintendo fans within the Universal Creative team”. This, in turn, helped the collaboration; “because they understand what we’re about, they were able to take that into the project.”

“When we were discussing the creation of things, whether that’s something in the games or a physical object that moves in the real world, the philosophy that both teams approached it with matched,” he explains. “That was when we understood that we had the right partnership.”
