Mighty Coconut, the independent entertainment studio behind “Walkabout Mini Golf,” is partnering with Aardman for a downloadable content course featuring 18 easy mode and hard mode holes, specially designed lost balls to collect, a commemorative in-game putter and themed avatars all set in the world of Wallace & Gromit.

“Wallace & Gromit are renowned for their love of tea, this felt a natural partnership for them to tee off with a new adventure,” says Sean Clarke, managing director, Aardman. “When we first met with Mighty Coconut about the idea, we knew that there were plenty of opportunities to explore. With ‘Walkabout Mini Golf,’ not only do fans get to putt through 62 West Wallaby Street, they can be there together–across their flat or across the globe as they relive old memories and make new ones. Whether they are immersing themselves in the course in virtual reality or hopping in on their iPhone or iPad, loyal fans of Wallace & Gromit – and people new to their pair’s hijinx – can count on discovering the humor, and the clever contraptions that generations have come to love.”

The course (the 27th for Walkabout Mini Golf) will be available as an add-on to “Walkabout Mini Golf” on Meta Quest 2/Pro/3, PlayStation VR2, Steam and PICO platforms as well as iOS devices via Walkabout Mini Golf: Pocket Edition.

“Walkabout Mini Golf: Wallace & Gromit” follows other licensed courses based on Jim Henson’s “Labyrinth,” Cyan’s “Myst” and “Meow Wolf.”

“Taking our players to 62 West Wallaby Street is such a thrill as a storytelling studio that started in animation,” says Lucas Martell, creator, Walkabout Mini Golf and head, Mighty Coconut. “Aardman has been a fantastic creative partner and has fully supported our imaginations running wild as superfans of Wallace & Gromit. We think people will be delighted with the charm and inventiveness they find that Wallace and Gromit have been up to in designing and building this new course.”
