The worlds of Nintendo and Shaun the Sheep collide!
The recent partnership between Nintendo and Aardman Animations, the company behind Wallace & Gromit and the blockbuster Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, has been taken to the next level! In the latest 3D episode of Shaun the Sheep, available exclusively to Nintendo 3DS owners for free via SpotPass, everyone’s favourite cheeky farmyard hero performs some iconic moves that will be recognised by all video game fans.
Shaun Goes Old School is the latest episode in the series of entertaining 3D clips starring the affable farmyard favourite. The episode sees Shaun not just armed with his very own Nintendo 3DS, but also performing a charming homage to a well-known Nintendo character.
Of the latest episode, Aardman co-founder David Sproxton says, “When we were approached by Nintendo to make the series of 3D Shaun the Sheep episodes we thought that a parody of a well-known Nintendo character would be a really funny idea. We ran the concept of having Shaun perform the character’s classic moves past its creator Mr Miyamoto and he couldn’t wait to see what we created.”
Alongside this latest Nintendo-themed episode you can also stream an exclusive documentary, entitled Raising the Baaaaa!, for free from Nintendo eShop. Further adventures of Shaun and his farmyard friends are available via the upcoming free weekly 3D clips: each week a new clip becomes available for Nintendo 3DS owners via SpotPass, to be viewed using Nintendo Video.
