Super Mario Maker x Shaun the Sheep

Have you had a chance to check out the Shaun the Sheep event course in Super Mario Maker yet? We think it's totally adorable. Following the release of this sheepish course, Nintendo UK has teamed up with Aardman Animations to create an exciting course design contest with a very cool prize.

The illustration of Shaun the Sheep playing on his Wii U which you can see above was drawn by Richard Starzak of Aardman Animations and the original work could be yours. To be in with a chance of winning you just need to design a course in Super Mario Maker using the Shaun the Sheep Costume which you can unlock by playing Shaun's Mossy Mole Mischief event course.

When you are happy with your creation, simply follow the instructions on the competition page to alert Nintendo UK to your masterpiece. The very best course – judged for its originality and playability – will be awarded the Shaun the Sheep illustration.

You have until 2nd of September to submit your Course Code, which should give you plenty of time to create an amazing Super Mario Maker course. Naturally with this being a Nintendo UK hosted competition, you'll need to be a UK resident to enter... would "ewe" believe it?
