The Augmented Reality cards were a popular inclusion at the 3DS launch, and Kid Icarus: Uprising will take this one step further.
A new trailer shown during Nintendo's E3 conference revealed that 3DS owners will be able to battle characters using special AR cards that will be released alongside the game.
Nintendo also confirmed that Uprising would include online multiplayer. While arena-based combat modes spotted during the trailer, no gameplay details were given.
The platform holder didn't confirm a release date either, but Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed that it would be available on shelves before the end of the year.
Kid Icarus: Uprising was announced at last year's E3 as one of the 3DS' flagship franchises. It is the first title in the series since the original game debuted on the NES in 1987.
