Kid Icarus: Uprising to Receive Tons of AR Cards

Kid Icarus: Uprising to Receive Tons of AR Cards

Some more interesting news surfaced today regarding Kid Icarus: Uprising. The game will make use of the AR card function of the 3DS. It is a rather novel idea, though how it will tie into the game remains to be seen.

As it turns out, Kid Icarus: Uprising will literally have hundreds of these AR cards available. The use of the AR cards seems to indicate that it will be used in a battle mode against rival players. No information is currently known regarding the distribution of these AR cards.

Does anybody remember the Gameboy Advance e-reader? It was a device you could purchase cards to unlock extra levels or functions for games on both Gameboy Advance and Gamecube. Sadly, with announcement of these AR cards, I can see a similar effect happening, where eventually the device and cards will just not sell.
