I thought the same about the whole "no consoles inside China until 2014" too, until I asked my Chinese friend about how he felt growing up without any gaming consoles. He was sort of surprised by my question and then told me that every 90s Chinese kid in Kunming (a city near Vietnam) grew up with a GameBoy Advance and bootleg copies of Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire. Apparently the text and Pokemon names' translation varied depending on which "distributor" translated and put the game onto the bootleg GBA cartridge. So even though Pokemon Sun and Moon are the first Pokemon games to be released in China with the option of Mandarin, Chinese people have been finding a way to get their Nintendo/Pokemon fix since the 90s haha And also, while I was I was in China, I saw a little bit of Nintendo everywhere. I saw quite a lot of Pokemon products, like balloons and Pikachu t-shirts. And then while I was at Thames Town, Shanghai (Google "Thames Town", it's really weird) I saw this graffiti.. I'm super interested to see how Universal Beijing turns out, I have been super excited ever since seeing that placeholder aerial artwork back in 2014. I have only been to Universal Studios Singapore and Shanghai Disneyland so I only know Asian theme parks (New Zealand's 1 and only theme park is just horrific) A few things, firstly, Shanghai Disneyland is already on track to breaking even soon, pretty good considering Hong Kong's/Paris' history. I wonder if Universal sees this as an opportunity to go bigger and better to hopefully get a better return in the long run? Bigger and better in both quality and quantity of rides/lands. Even though Shanghai Disneyland has been really successful, a lot of people who attended the park criticized the park for not having enough to do. Heck, even the staff at the Toy Story Hotel told me that 2 days at the park would be too much as it is "more of a half-day park". They were wrong, I was dangerously theme-park-deficient and I had been deprived of Disney parks my whole life (I have never been to any Disney park except the Shanghai one) so I went to the park from opening until closing for three days, and even considered going for a fourth day, but thought that maybe 3 days was enough as to not overdo it. Secondly, due to the deadly New Years Eve Shanghai Stampede, and the 330,000,000 people who live within a 3 hour car/train trip from the park, Shanghai completely revamped their original plans to have much wider paths. Treasure Cove's original concept art showed narrow paths but the finished park has paths that are so wide that the theming feels a little "diluted" at times. I wonder if Hogsmeade's design will be changed for China? JK Rowling says she doesn't want the Hogsmeade shops to feel like shopping malls, and the Main Streets at Hogsmeade in the US/Japan parks are already as wide as they can be without losing their magic. I wonder if they'll just implement a return pass system like Japan had in place to limit crowds for their Wizarding World's opening season?
