Nintendo partners with Aardman to bring Shaun the Sheep to Mario Maker - Super Mario Maker for Wii U News

Nintendo has partnered with Oscar-winning studio Aardman to bring Shaun the Sheep to Super Mario Maker.

From Friday afternoon players will be able to attempt Event Course, Shaun's Mossy Mole Mischief, which is inspired by Shaun's home, Mossy Bottom Farm, where Mario encounters mischievous Monty Moles, crazy contraptions and silly secrets.

Completing the course 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," commented Daniel Efergan, Digital Group Creative Director at Aardman. "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."

Players will find the new course in the game's Course World menu, under Event Courses.
