Pokémon & Universal Studios Japan announce new partnership

The Pokémon Company and Universal Studios Japan have announced they’ve entered into a long-term partnership, beginning next year.

According to the press release, the move will see the two companies “jointly explore ground breaking entertainment that will immerse guests into the world of Pokémon with innovative technology and creativity.” The collaboration will see the series integrated into the park as early as 2022.

The CEOs of both companies of course provided a statement on the move.  Universal Studios Japan’s J.L. Bonnier was first to add his comments. “The globally popular Pokémon characters combined with Universal’s innovative approach to creating authentic and one-of-a-kind theme park entertainment promise excitement for the entire family.”

President and CEO of The Pokémon Company Tsunekazu Ishihara added his own thoughts. “The incredible team at Universal Studios Japan have the creative vision and leading expertise in world-class theme park technology to imagine a uniquely Pokémon experience.” He continued “This strategic alliance with Universal Studios Japan reflects our commitment to continue delivering the joy of Pokémon in ever evolving ways for years to come. We are looking forward to the day when we can welcome fans from around the world to all enjoy it together.”

Universal Studios Japan is already the home of Super Nintendo World, which opened earlier this year. In fact, the park literally just announced it’ll be expanding with a new Donkey Kong themed area, set to launch in 2024.

A week or two Josh was talking about schoolskids lying for attention, I remember one guy tried to convince me he was going on holiday to Japan where there was a virtual reality Pokemon theme park where you run around catching them. Then he got annoyed when his mum didn’t play along. Maybe he was a prophet?
