2nd Aardman Flipnote Nintendo DSi Clip on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Following last week's Sandwich Twins, the second Aardman clip from Flipnote Studio (reviewed here) has been revealed as being the rather lacklustre "Icy Nicey." This bland effort is the second 'flipnote' in a series of 12 being created by Tim Ruffle of Aardman to demonstrate how simple Flipnote Studio is to use. The programme can be downloaded for free from the Nintendo DSi Shop, and will come pre-installed in the new DSi colours that launch in Europe next month.

The first animation, "The Sandwich Twins", released last week, reached number one in the Flipnote charts on the Hatena website, with more than 90,000 views and 4,000 downloads already. It is also much more charming than this new effort.

Aardman is a world leader in animation, producing feature films, television series and television commercials. The studio has won over 400 international awards including 4 Oscars, and is best known for its popular Wallace and Gromit characters. The next 10 animations will feature more unusual and fun characters created exclusively by Aardman for this partnership and will be available each week as they are released in the run up to Christmas. Keep an eye on the Flipnote Hatena website for each new animation.

You can either go to the Flipnote Hatena website now and watch "Icy Nicey" or simply watch the YouTube version below. Then it would be highly advised that you head over to the DSi Shop, download Flipnote Studio for free and start creating your own animations to show that more can be achieved than an ice-cream melting on the beach...
