BAM! Entertainment® announced today that its video game Wallace & Gromit(TM) in Project Zoo will be on display in the Nintendo® booth at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), May 14-16, 2003. Created by Aardman, the popular clay characters Wallace & Gromit have starred in several half-hour films that have won more than 45 international awards including two Oscars®.

Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo is the first video game product to feature the popular British characters and is due to release on Nintendo GameCube this fall.

"Having Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo chosen to be part of Nintendo's booth is a great honor," said Ray Musci, Chief Executive Officer of BAM! Entertainment. "Nintendo is helping get the word out that this much-loved duo is on its way."

"We are excited that Wallace & Gromit will be exhibited in Nintendo's booth and that they will be making their first trip to E3 in style," said Sean Clarke, Vice President of Consumer Products at Aardman. "Fans of Wallace & Gromit have waited a long time to see these timeless characters come to video game platforms."

Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo is an action-adventure game where the player is on a mission to liberate the zoo from the evil clutches of the maniacal penguin Feathers McGraw. Gamers will play as the non-speaking yet charismatic dog, Gromit. With Wallace in tow, building ingenious contraptions, Gromit will navigate six diverse and lush levels completing 24 missions and 12 mini-arcade games as he rescues baby zoo animals, solves puzzles and attempts to defeat Feathers the Penguin at his evil game.

The Wallace & Gromit films have been dubbed into more than 20 languages with U.S. and U.K. video sales reaching over 10 million units. Aardman recently released Cracking Contraptions, a series of ten one-minute Wallace & Gromit films and is set to begin production with DreamWorks on the first feature-length Wallace & Gromit movie slated for release in 2005.
