It appears that the new 3DS title is coming packaged with yet another bonus.

Kid Icarus: Uprising is coming packaged with six random augmented reality cards out of a currently unknown total when it launches on March 23.

Nintendo demonstrated at E3 2011 that the game uses AR cards to simulate fights between two characters, initiated when cards are placed directly against one another. Other cards feature various weapons and minor enemies. There is no word regarding other potential distribution methods.

The news follows the recent announcement that Kid Icarus would come bundled with a 3DS stand to keep the player's system steady while playing.

It might be a little off topic, But I really hope this happens with Smash Brothers!  :D

The way I see it, Nintendo expects us to trade them or will release one series of trading cards which will sell horribly. I don't like the looks of this one bit.

Well, once they all get scanned to the internets, they'll all just be a color printer away.

I think it's a neato idea. Sure, it might not sell terribly well, but it'll be cool nonetheless.

Who are we kidding.  The AR Cards are in there for the Japanese market.  I bet we won't even see them released in the west beyond the pack ins.

The stupid AR cards never worked for me anyways (even doing exactly what the instructions said), so I couldn't care less.

Well, the US website says they are planning card meet-ups.

You probably should get that fixed before your warranty expires...

I'm not to surprised to hear that.  Great Special event.  Still don't see the ability to buy the cards in packs.
