Universal Studios in Japan will play host to Mario and a number of other Nintendo characters sometime in the near future, though details have been scarce since the news was officially announced. The newest issue of Manichi Shinbun, however, has dropped a couple of interesting tidbits about the upcoming addition to the park.

According to the publication, the head of Universal Studios in Japan expects the Mario area to “exceed” the extremely popular Harry Potter section of the park. That particular section cost more than $400 million to build, and it’s expected that the Nintendo section could surpass that by another $100 million. While Mario would seem to be the focus of the collaboration between Universal and Nintendo, a number of other popular Nintendo franchises are under consideration, as well. Pok√©mon, Splatoon, Pikmin and Star Fox would all seem to be strong candidates, but time will certainly tell, in this case!

The Nintendo-themed attractions are expected to arrive in time for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. Which Nintendo franchises would you like to see represented at the park? Let us know in the comments below!
