Move over Apple keynote video stream, the real action this Wednesday night will be on Nintendo 3DS as Aardman’s Shaun the Sheep lands on European consoles.
As part of a partnership between Nintendo and the multi-award winning Aardman Animations, the creators of Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit, Nintendo 3DS owners will receive the brand new 3D SpotPass content for free.
Nintendo and Aardman will be releasing 15 clips featuring Shaun and his flock embarking on brand new adventures, available in 3D for the first time. All of your farmyard favourites are featured in the series including Shaun, Timmy, Bitzer, the Farmer and the flock and each week you will be able to watch them like never before via Nintendo 3DS.
The first episode is available to receive via SpotPass from 7th March and sees Shaun and the gang heading out for a relaxing picnic, unfortunately the Farmers fishing trip in the adjacent field is set to spoil their tranquil meal.
To view the Shaun the Sheep episodes make sure you have downloaded the free Nintendo Video application from the Nintendo eShop. The exclusive clips can then be received via the SpotPass feature whenever your Nintendo 3DS is connected to the internet via Wi-Fi, even when your Nintendo 3DS is in sleep mode. There are now thousands of public Wi-Fi hotspots across Europe meaning that you can even get Shaun the Sheep while you are on the go.
Nintendo Video brings music videos, exclusive comedy, animation, and action to your Nintendo 3DS. Every week, new 2D and 3D videos will be delivered to your Nintendo 3DS via the SpotPass feature. But the videos won’t stay long – don’t hang around or you might miss them. To start watching, download Nintendo Video from the Nintendo eShop today.
The first of 15 3D Shaun the Sheep clips is available from 7th March 2012, with one further episode launching each week
