Wallace and Gromit creators Aardaman has developed exclusive episodes of Shaun the Sheep for Nintendo 3DS.
One of 15 clips will be made available to view via Nintendo Video, with the first one going live from March 7th. The content is in full 3D and can be downloaded via an StreetPass.
The project was first announced before 3DS reached shelves last year.
"We are proud to be working with Aardman Animations to launch Shaun the Sheep’s first 3D adventures via SpotPass on Nintendo 3DS. Make sure you keep checking Nintendo Video on your Nintendo 3DS for regularly updated content for you to enjoy," said Nintendo Europe’s MD of marketing and PR Laurent Fischer.
Aardman’s co-founder and chairman David Sproxton added: As a company we are always looking ahead to the next ‘big thing’, the technological advances that will improve our audience’s experience. We are already working with 3D formats as a studio on our upcoming feature film, but when we first experienced the Nintendo 3DS it’s safe to say all of us were completely blown away. To be contributing to something as innovative as the Nintendo 3DS from the very outset is an extraordinary experience for us and we’re looking forward to seeing Shaun the Sheep on Nintendo 3DS and working with Nintendo going forwards.”
Nintendo Video features new content – be it comedy, music videos, animation or action – to 3DS every week. However, the content is only available for a limited time.
