Nintendo has announced a new partnership with Wallace and Gromit creators Aardman that will see Shaun the Sheep come to Super Mario Maker.
A brand-new Event Course called Shaun’s Mossy Mole Mischief, inspired by Shaun’s home, Mossy Bottom Farm, has been added to the game. During the level Mario will encounter “mischievous Monty Moles, crazy contraptions and silly secrets.” Completing the level will unlock a Shaun the Sheep costume that allows Mario to take on Shaun’s appearance.
“Having grown up in a generation of technology that, due to its nature of exposing its inner workings, allowed you to build and adjust your own games—it’s what inspired me and many here in Aardman’s interactive team to do what we do,” Daniel Efergan, Digital Group Creative Director at Aardman said. “Super Mario Maker harks back to that age, inspiring a new generation of happy creators. To have one of our icons hanging out with one of our idols, and for such an exceptional project, is a dream come true.”
The new level can be found in the game’s “Course World” menu under “Event Courses.”
