Nintendo (OTC: NTDOY) is known for its sustained success in the video game industry. With timeless characters like Donkey Kong, Mario, and Zelda, the company has been able to ride the boom-and-bust game console cycle for almost four decades. However, over the last five years, Nintendo has announced multiple initiatives to diversify itself away from video games, the largest being a global theme park partnership with Comcast‘s (NASDAQ: CMCSA) Universal Studios.
The first of its Super Nintendo World parks is set to open this February. Here’s what investors need to know about them, and why they should be excited about Nintendo’s future.
