Nintendo did not specify which characters would be appearing. The second short features the three little German pigs from Shrek.

"Nintendo 3DS is a powerful platform that allows content creators to reach users on-the-go, and we are thrilled to be working with Nintendo to make some of our DreamWorks Animation 3D content available this Halloween season," said Jim Mainard, Head of Production Development for DreamWorks Animation, in an official release.

Blue Man Group is bringing its sixth and final clip to the 3DS this month.

3net, a collaboration between Discovery Communications, Sony, and Imax, will provide content to the 3DS. Programming includes Bullproof about bull riders, Feeding Time about animals, and Building the Brand about iconic brands. Say, Discovery Communications, Imax, and Sony—those are iconic brands.
