Nintendo Launches A Virtual Card Album On Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo 3DS owners will from today be able to swap and collect a specific collection of virtual cards featuring some of their favourite characters when a free Virtual Card Album launches for Nintendo 3DS today. Some cards for this Virtual Card Album are available in 3D and others will feature brand new artwork, meaning that Nintendo fans will have lots of reasons to try and collect them all.

To kick off your collection simply visit the Nintendo eShop to get the free Card Pack, featuring the Virtual Card Album and 5 virtual cards. The collection will feature well known characters such as Mario and Sonic, to name a few. Further virtual cards will be distributed regularly via SpotPass meaning that you will in no time have plenty of cards in your Virtual Card Album to begin collecting and swapping with friends.

It is possible to have multiples of the same cards so make sure you know which cards your friends need so that you can swap your duplicates for any you need to help complete your virtual collection. Swaps take place via StreetPass and through a Local Connection with your friends, you can allocate which of your collection you want to swap and once you agree to a trade it will happen automatically.

Some cards are rarer than others and there are various ways to get the rarest cards for your collection beyond simply swapping them with your friends. If you want to unlock the rarest cards, then ensure to take your Nintendo 3DS around with you while you’re out and about. By walking around with your Nintendo 3DS in Sleep Mode you can earn up to 10 Play Coins every day, these can then be exchanged on rare cards for your collection.

Similarly, some rare cards will become available by visiting designated locations and events so make sure you keep an eye out for announcements as to their whereabouts and that you have your Nintendo 3DS to hand when on the move.

To start this specific virtual card collection and trade cards with your friends, download the Virtual Card Album from the Nintendo eShop from today. For information on this Virtual Card Album and other Nintendo 3DS games and features please check here.

      1. Shouldn’t you be in summer shcool right now or did the education system justifiably give up on you?

  3. I know it’s non-related but I just looked on the Nintendo UK website and on the 28th July they are releasing a new Freaky Forms that is a retail game. I just thought some of you might be interested in it. I haven’t played the first one myself but I just thought I should just throw it out there.

  4. Is it one troll changing his name or are there other brain donors out there. Anyways, sorry for feeding the trolls.

    1. Forgot to put “?” in the first sentence. Head off the inevitable grammar Nazi’s. (Of course, it seems that the current trolls probably wouldn’t know the difference. Oh well.)

  6. Hey, Sickr. I seem to have a fan of me goin around givin me a bad name. I hope you don’t think he’s me, as you can see my gravatar.

  7. There is no such app. You make it sound like it’s this vast app that Nintendo have made. It’s a Mario and Sonic Olympics 2012 one made by Sega UK.

  8. I will definitely complete the Virtual Card Album end of July and I’m always up for a challenge.

  9. Was pumped for this, but now I’m sad that it isn’t out at the time of this post, at least not for the USA.
    Well, at least my visit to the E-shop let me pick up the Heroes of Ruin demo and the update to Swap Note, so it wasn’t a total waste.^_^

    1. I know. I was really looking forward to this one. I’m not a Pokemon fan, but I do like the Pokedex thingy. lol. I believe that IS the technical term for it. I enjoy looking at it and reading all about them. I hope they do release the card collector soon. I’m anxious to see it.

  10. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
    Did you create this website yourself or did you
    hire someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to know where u got this from. many thanks
