First there was Mario in Minecraft, now we have Wallace and Gromit’s Shaun the Sheep appearing in Super Mario Maker in what’s a bit of an unusual crossover, fun fun nonetheless. From tomorrow, June 3rd, Shaun the Sheep will be available to unlock by completing a special event course.
Wallace and Gromit maker Aardman Animation has a history working with Nintendo, developing animations for the 3DS’ video channel. Seeing Nintendo go into crossover mode with an animator like this in one of their mascot’s games is pretty cool, and surely fans of Wallace and Gromit will take to it.
A new trailer shows Shaun in action, and look forward to checking this out tomorrow on the Nintendo Wii U.
