Kid Icarus: Uprising Unboxing and AR Cards
« on: March 19, 2012, 02:05:48 AM »

Pit's back, baby.

To kick off our onslaught of Kid Icarus: Uprising coverage, here's some pictures of the game's manual and some AR cards.

Here are Pit, Medusa, and Palutena. The top row are the ones that came in my pack of cards, and the bottom row is the special E3 2011 AR cards. They appear the same, and I was even able to have a confusing Pit vs. Pit AR card battle where they just killed each other.
...And here are the other three cards that I got in my six-card pack. Every copy of the game comes with a six-card pack.
 
The manual is like most new Nintendo 3DS game manuals. Nothing too notable here, except the humorous trappings for the multiplayer mode. First off, it's called "Together" mode. Secondly, local multiplayer is called "Nearby" and online is called "Far Away."
 
Here's the cool inside of the box, complete with Pit, Palutena, and other character's faces.

Didn't know the manuals of 3DS games are a fold-out sheet rather than a booklet. Kinda makes me sad.


The little portraits is a nice touch.

Never have I been so envious of someone getting a game early.

Nope. There is a no touch screen control scheme, but you have to use the face buttons to move.

So very, very glad to see that the inner case art is intact. If this is the same for the retail copies I will be genuinely excited.

Uber jealous of the Hewdraw card. Crossing my fingers for that one.  ;D
Thanks for posting this.
