What the hell is this shit? Cards are preorder exclusive per retailer in Canada. I thought Nintendo would never pull this bullcrap...

From the Nintendo 3DS Facebook page:


Rally for battle, Canada! Pre-order Kid Icarus: Uprising in-store at Best Buy and get 3 exclusive AR Cards -- including the Pit (Rally Cry) AR Card -- to help bring the light! Cards available upon purchase. Deposit may be required. In-store only.


Hey Canada! Medusa's army is growing, so can your set of AR Cards for Kid Icarus: Uprising. Reserving your copy from EB Games is the only way you can get these 5 exclusive cards at launch. Cards will be distributed at the time of purchase. Deposit may be required.

Everything we presently know about the AR Card game makes it seem shallow and completely uninteresting.

From what I understand, each copy of the game comes with 6 AR cards, those pre-order exclusive cards are just that, pre-order exclusive cards. So people who pre-order get those 6 + the pre-order ones.

That the things. It's gonna be hard to collect all the cards... :p

Given that the standard AR cards can be printed out in black & white and work perfectly well, I see no great reason to worry about the random selection.

Unless NOA really plans to try to sell "expansion packs" of these.

That's true for all collectible card games, though. Having the cards is really more a matter of e-peen (or whatever you want to call it) than anything else.

There's suppose to be 100 to collect.
Not sure how they'll sell them, but considering there's SMG and Nintendogs cards...

They're not planning on selling them - you'll be able to get 'em at Nintendo events and game conventions, and you'll be able to get 24-card booster packs on the European Club Nintendo for 250 Stars a pop.

All battles are pre-determined, meaning the card game is nothing more than a fancy rock/paper/scissors. Or should I say War?

Yeah, that's what I thought. Some of the hands-on reports have suggested there might be more to it that they haven't tested/can't mention, but the closer we get to release the more I'm thinking it's just not very good.

Well, there will be items and such to spice things up, but no.
It won't be MtG.
Still, considering how much this game has in it, it's really hard to fault this addition.

This QR code was posted to the English language twitter feed this morning. It links to a website for the 3DS with 3D screen shots.

The game definitely looks better in 3D, but it doesn't look anywhere near as clean and polished as Mario 3D Land. Based on the screens we've seen, this definitely seems to be a visual mixed bad with some scenes looking much better than others. Still though, the graphics look pretty good for a game with such ambition.

The game's hype has finally reached an all time high. I can't wait to pick this up later in the month; its even surpassed ME3 and SFxT tekken for me on the hypometer.

Also Palutena is just too cute...

Question regarding the AR cards:

Do we know if these are purely linked to the AR battle game, or do some of them also translate into items/abilities for in the main game? It would seem to make a lot of sense to have cards that could function like eCards as implemented in Mario Advance.

Oh man :( what happened to it?

I'll have to check the 3d shots when I get home.
Just some minor stuff, but I wanted it at it's best before this game hits! (And my warranty gets closer to the end of the line)

This AR card came inside the latest Game Informer, so I'm sure NP will also get some:


Why do I always seem to get my copy of game informer 10 or more days after everyone else :| And yes i'm a subscriber (via gamestop pro) >.<

Trying to catch up on some of this news.

The anime videos will be packaged with game or available on eshop or something else?

Thanks!

Sweet! Thanks Ace!

Really looking forward to them, do we know if these videos are output from the Nintendo inhouse video production team that was rumored a couple years ago or outsourced?
