AR character cards bundled with 3DS

The 3DS will come bundled with six augmented reality cards based on popular Nintendo characters at launch.

When placed on flat surface and viewed through the upcoming handheld’s camera, the cards transform on screen into an animated character.

The cards included in the 3DS box will allow players to have a virtual Mario, Link, Samus, Kirby or a trio of Pikmin wandering around their desk, table or garden, according to Kotaku.

The technology has previously been demonstrated with a card bearing a Nintendo question block, which simulates a dragon in the real world. This will also included in the box.
