3DS Get Extra Kid Icarus AR Cards from Club Nintendo

Kid Icarus: Uprising will launch across Europe on 23rd March with 6 Kid Icarus AR cards included, but there are more to collect to boost your collection. The exclusive Kid Icarus AR cards will also be available through Club Nintendo. For 250 Stars you'll be able to get 2 packs containing 6 AR cards each. Watch out for extremely rare cards hidden in certain packs.

Kid Icarus: Uprising begins with the return of the Queen of the Underworld, Medusa, and her Underworld Army. Pit, a heroic angel, with the help of Palutena, goddess of light and guardian of the human race, must combat the forces of darkness as he battles Medusa and her minions by air and by land.

In the latest Nintendo Direct, Mr Sakurai, the creative force behind the world famous Super Smash Brothers and Kirby series made an appearance to talk about his latest game Kid Icarus: Uprising. He commented on one of the forthcoming 3-on-3 multiplayer battles, while using the unique difficulty system - the Fiend's Cauldron - which rewards the gamers with stronger weapons, as well as on the innovative AR Card feature within the game. He also introduced the StreetPass functionality of Kid Icarus: Uprising, where players will have the ability to share one of their weapons with other Kid Icarus: Uprising owners. The selected weapon is turned into a Weapon Gem. Shared Weapon Gems can be converted into real weapons by paying Hearts. Players can also fuse Weapon Gems together by paying Hearts to create a more powerful Weapon.

  • Awww... in US we couldn't buy the booster packs. We got those 3 free cards via Club Nintendo, however Nintendo said they have limited quantity. So I have no idea if I am getting one or not.
