3DS Nintendo

Watch Out As There’s Going To Be Hundreds Of Kid Icarus Uprising AR Cards

Nintendo has revealed to Siliconera that there will be hundred of Kid Icarus: Uprising AR cards available. Nintendo wouldn’t reveal exactly how gamers will get hold of the AR cards, but presumably they will be distributed online. Kid Icarus: Uprising launches on Nintendo 3DS on March 23rd and comes bundled with a free stand. The game also includes six random augmented reality cards for you to battle with.


    1. You read my toughts but its kinda a little too much 3d animations for a little 3Ds, what about a yu ig oh game for wii u with agumented reality

      1. The Wii U controller would be perfect for a Yu-Gi-Oh! game. The controller could be used for viewing your hand and the field and making your plays. The TV can be used for the battle sequences.

      2. What Nintendo needs to do is make a MMO pokemon game. Wii U should be perfect fo this. If they haven’t been working on this for a while, they ain’t doing their fucking jobs over there.


  1. I’ll probably be able to get aorund this and not get sucked into this with Kid Icarus.
    But imagine when this ineviatably happens with Pokemon – I will be so broke!

    Nice to see them sticking with it though, even if I don’t see it panning out into a big way on non-first party titles.

    1. ^total loser buying children/girl crap. cracker like playing online with kids/nostalgia 40 yr old queers and pale weak race and asain sluts.

  2. At first I wasn’t too psyched for this game, but now i’m absolutely ecstatic! This is going to be AMAZING! I’ll see you online >:D


      1. Pedo? Pedos are on PC not consoles, because PC has online which leads to dating sites.

    1. Agreed. I can see this as somewhat of a marketing ploy for money, but, hopefully the ar mode is really fun!

      1. And you call yourself that? You must have some retarded mental issues.

    1. Are u idiot? Wrong series. And you don’t catch cards, you buy them or get them from the internet.

      1. yes good game, i remember just choosing cards randomly, i never got the hang of the game but i still beat it lol

        and yes i just collected the cards to brag, i never really learned to play the game, sad i know.

      1. Worst are better than nothing Banjos. Besides, you bragging rights if you beat someone else with lamo cards.

  3. Not to go too off topic, but I’m kind of excited for that stand…

    It would make playing Elite Beat Agents, The World Ends With You, and many other games that mainly use the stylus, WAY easier to play…

  4. ThIs is FANTASTIC news Sickr!
    Thanks for having such a kick-ass site, I totally tell my friends to follow you on twitter.

    These cards are going to be sweet, and sealed the deal for me. I’m definately pre-ordering now.

  5. If they’re sold in packs, hope they aren’t random and by the time you’ve bought about 90 cards, 10 of them are the same.

    1. So… 8/9 of the cards you collect will be the only ones while the 1/1 remaining will be the copies of the others?

      I hope it’s not random… my luck of cards is soo bad.

      1. Yeah, I’ve never collected cards but I used to do the Panini sticker albums when I was a kid. Would always have a stack of duplicates.

  6. I have said many times that Nintendo needs to release AR cards for purchase. Much like baseball trading cards, you buy a pack and if you have doubles you just trade them with somebody else. It can be anything from a Koopa Troopa to Bullet Bill to Re-Dead to space pirates from Metroid. The possibilities are end-less!

  7. This sounds goods.anyways me gets back to playings my ps vita now it’s awesome and I can watch dah gay porn on it.

  8. Very cool idea. In Canada, pre-orders at EB Games get 5 bonus cards. I expect this will be common all over the place. Expect Club Nintendo cards as well.

    1. I can’t even find an EB Games where I live now. Dang Gamestop and their crappy game services… Lucky

  9. Kid Icarus just had to be my favourtie NES game….now I have to collect all the cards…ALL THE CARDS!!!!!!!!! >:]

  10. Again, this reminds me I never got my free Icarus for registering 2 games on the 3DS. I must follow up with Nintendo

    1. I thought this too, but for a strange reason the e-mails with the code for the 3D game was in my spam folder. Almost nothing gets in my spam folder but that one did, almost missed the game if i didn’t accidentally check my spam folder.

  11. Online mode alone is making me buy it. HOWEVER this AR functionality is mouth-watering. :D’

    1. But online mode is AWESOME!!! Beating the crud out of others with weapons you know they’ll never get is AWESOME!!!

  12. i really hope they’re useful, i think its neat that we got the mario, kirby, samus, ect. AR cards, but its kind of lame that all you get to do with them is pose them, i hope these actually do something for the game, if not, ill be passing on the cards.

  13. I don’t get why Nintendo keeps showing this everywhere. Yeah, obivious reason is to get us to buy it, but its just showing too much of it! By the time we get it we already know almost all of the story, the only thing left to do is collect the weapons. I’ve resorted to biting myself, locking away my Wii, and blocking the Nintendo site to stop myself from uncovering more!

  14. They just forgot one thing… we could just scan and copy the cards to give to eachother. I just hope the ones that come with the game aren’t at random or else there would be no in fun in collecting them.
