Follow the exploits of Barbazan, a disastrous but highly entertaining magician, in a series of 3D stop motion animation clips are launching exclusively on Nintendo 3DS. The first of six, five minute episodes of The Incredible Barbazan will be available to download from the Nintendo eShop from 12th July.
The clips will be available from the Nintendo eShop over a six week period at a price of £1.35 per episode. To whet your appetites, a short trailer will also be released for free via Nintendo Video on 18th July.
The Incredible Barbazan series has been produced by Living Colour Entertainment; an Amsterdam based multimedia company with a broad international focus and active in three areas: content, production and licensing. Living Colour Entertainment has a passion for content and loves movie theatres as much as mobile screens. Besides The Incredible Barbazan, their catalogue offers a variety of titles, documentaries, series and clips.
Starring a vaudeville magician called Barbazan and his trusty penguin assistant Fritz, The Incredible Barbazan follows the exploits of the failed magician as he tries to emulate his hero The Great Houdini. Unfortunately for Barbazan and Fritz his tricks and illusions very rarely go as planned and often endanger both the lives of the protagonists themselves and also their audience!
Developed using the popular stop-motion animation technique, each of the six available clips is available exclusively in 3D for the first time. The first episode launching on 12th July is entitled “The Cabinet of Fear” and sees Barbazan tackling a classic magic trick with disastrous consequences.
The first exclusive 3D episode of The Incredible Barbazan is available on the Nintendo eShop on July 12th and is priced at £1.35; a free trailer will become available via Nintendo Video on July 18th.
