Move over, Harry Potter: Nintendo fans will soon have their own worlds to explore at Universal Studios.

Universal and Nintendo revealed a few more details Tuesday about their plans to partner on new themed areas at Universal Studios parks in Orlando, Hollywood and Osaka, Japan. High score!

Here’s what we know so far: The new “expansive, immersive and interactive” Nintendo worlds will open over the next few years with attractions, shops and restaurants that will make guests feel they’ve entered their favorite games in real life.

“When [visitors are] transported into that world, and they stand there for a moment and see it in front of them as if they had just walked into their game platform, I think that’s gonna be a really exciting time,” Mark Woodbury, president of Universal Creative, says in the video above. 

If the colorful set behind Woodbury is any clue, the new worlds will be exciting indeed. Woodbury explained that as park developers went to work on the new Nintendo areas, plans only became more and more colorful, more immersive, and more involved.

It’s yet to be confirmed if these new worlds will include rides, a Universal spokesperson told HuffPost. But we’re guessing at least a few are in store: According to the L.A. Times, Universal plans to open a new attraction every year at each of its major locations. 

Wii can hardly wait.
