Kid Icarus: Uprising adds Reality Card Hunting to its Collective
When Kid Icarus: Uprising launches on the 3DS later this month, players will have a chance to get reacquainted with angelic hero Pit, who hasn’t starred in a game since 1991’s Game Boy sequel to his NES classic. And if Nintendo has its way, you’ll be sucked into a world of real-world card collecting once the introductions are over.
When the game is opened, you’ll immediately get six AR cards, drawn randomly from a pool of 20. But wait! There’s more!
There are hundreds of these cards, which spring to life when photographed with the 3DS’ built-in camera. Club Nintendo members can get Great Reaper, Palutena, and Drill Arm cards by visiting a site.
