Nintendo Co. this week said Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS will include a pack of AR Cards to be used with the final game.
AR Cards will feature characters, enemies, bosses, weapons and items from the game that will unlock a corresponding Idol. Also, users can view each item in 3D with the Nintendo 3DS camera.
A total of six out of 20 randomly selected AR Cards will be included in each copy of the title.
In addition, customers can collect additional AR Cards from Club Nintendo, select GameStop Corp. retail locations Apr. 14, publications including Nintendo Power, and events like PAX East in Apr.
Kid Icarus: Uprising, to be sold Mar. 23, is a new third-person action shooter.
A new system called the Fiend’s Cauldron will allow users to adjust the intensity level of the game by increments of .1 by betting a number of Hearts into the Fiend’s Cauldron. An increased intensity will earn more Hearts and more powerful weapon drops. If Hearts are bet and the player is defeated, some Hearts are lost and the intensity level falls.
New items include bow and claw weapons and Exo Tank vehicles.
The final game will include a stand that holds the Nintendo 3DS at an angle on a flat surface to offer precise left analog control and right-handed stylus play. In addition, the title is compatible with the optional Circle Pad Pro accessory.
In addition, users who pre-order the title at select retailers will receive a bonus download code for 3D Classics: Kid Icarus – a remastered 3D version of the NES classic.
