I’m sure those of you who bought Kid Icarus Uprising last month will have unlocked a large number of weapons, abilities and probably seen the final boss. You won’t be done there however as there still seems to be plenty more surprises in store in the form of new stage cards that give your AR combatants something to fight on.
While you’re probably aware of the collectable AR cards that can be earned via Nintendo’s site (and soon bought in shops) that allow you to battle with two characters from the game, a new set of stage cards have been released into the wild that give your brawlers something to actually fight on. Nintendo Dream magazine in Japan comes free with some of said cards and the results are nothing short of impressive. Simply place the card above the two opponent cards and the new area will appear underneath the pair.
Seems the AR cards have a few more tricks up their sleeve which hopefully means there’s more potential in this gimmicky feature of the console. Maybe we’ll see future titles expanding the scope even further in the future. Packs of AR cards will soon go on sale according to Nintendo so expect these new stage cards to be included then.
