Universal Studios Japan has teamed up with The Pokémon Company to work on a new addition to the company's theme parks.

The Osaka-based park is set to gain some kind of Pokémon-themed attractions, similar to the existing Super Nintendo World. Multiple projects are already underway that will create "innovative Pokemon entertainment" for fans and guests.

The first of these projects is scheduled to appear in the park by the end of 2022.

"We are honoured to have a long-term partnership with The Pokémon Company while developing ground-breaking Pokémon entertainment at Universal Studios Japan for both Pokémon fans and our guests," said Universal Studios Japan president and CEO J.L. Bonnier.

"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."

The Pokémon Company CEO and president Tsunekazu Ishihara, added: "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."

Universal also recently unveiled plans for a new Donkey Kong section of Super Nintendo World, slated to open in 2024.
