Nintendo has announced that the second series of Kid Icarus: Uprising AR Card packs will be distributed at a number of events starting Aug. 3. Building upon the popular first series of cards distributed around the launch of the game, the Series 2 AR Cards feature different characters, enemies, weapons and items that appear in Kid Icarus: Uprising. Also, for the first time, players will find AR Cards representing various locations found within the game.
Consumers in the United States can collect packs of these special AR Cards in the coming weeks at the following events (quantities are limited, available while supplies last):
- Retail Events: Consumers in the New York area who attend Kid Icarus: Uprising events at the Nintendo World store will be given Series 2 AR Card packs starting on Aug. 3. The events take place every Friday from 6 – 8 p.m. Eastern time. Additionally, consumers will also have the opportunity to get Series 2 AR card packs at game-play sessions at select retail locations later this year. Exact dates and details will be announced at a later time.
- Consumer Events: At several upcoming consumer events, Nintendo will be handing out packs of Series 2 AR Card packs while supplies last. Penny Arcade Expo (Aug. 31 – Sept. 2, Seattle) and New York Comic-Con (Oct. 11 – 13, New York) attendees are encouraged to stop by the Nintendo booth for Series 2 AR Card packs. Nintendo will announce additional plans for these events at a later time.
