How would Dynasty Warriors, Genshin Impact, Nier and The Sims’ theme parks look like?

Imagine an alternative reality where the world focuses more on creating more spaces for people to enjoy.

In particular, theme parks have their own charms e.g Legoland, Ocean Park, Universal Studios to name a few. Video games are a great inspiration into making more theme parks a chance to get creative with in-game content (items, characters, places) into the real world and most importantly, an offline space where they can meet online friends and like minded gamers.

So with this post, I’ll be sharing how this can be done. Food and Drink, Rides, Limited Events and Merchandise are the main wishes on how to bring these four theme parks alive — Dynasty Warriors, Genshin Impact, Nier and The Sims.

Dynasty Warriors

The Dynasty Empire opens up the world to the kingdoms of Wu, Wei, Shu and Jin to bring forth an unforgettable experience for gamers to be entertained, excited and most of all, enjoy.
