The beloved third-party game developer and famous entertainment studio are teaming up to produce games based on Universal's popular licenses

If it wasn't official enough, Konami is now an even stronger Next Gen supporter. They've teamed up with Universal to develop and publish games for the upcoming systems. IGN has the word:

Konami Entertainment has formed an alliance with Universal Studios to develop and publish numerous titles based on the many recognizable brands Universal has to offer. The games, none of which have been announced officially, will be designed for the "next-generation" systems.

Considering Konami's recent partnerships with Nintendo, namely its Mobile 21 upstart (which will bridge the gap between Dolphin and Game Boy Advance), it's highly likely that the firm will be bringing its newly acquired Universal licenses to Nintendo's next-generation system in full.

Some big Universal licenses include Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, King Kong, Jaws, E.T., Backdraft and countless, almost infinite others.
