Free Kid Icarus AR Idol Cards at Club Nintendo

A nifty feature of the 3DS is its ability to interact with AR Cards, a few of which are included with the console itself.  Since the 3DS launch, however, they’ve largely been absent. Thankfully, AR Cards are back and Nintendo is giving them away for free.

Each Kid Icarus AR “Idol” pack has three cards including Great Reaper, Drill Arm and Palutena (Rare). Like all AR Cards, when the 3DS camera is pointed at them, the characters/items will spring to life. You can get your free pack of cards by heading over to Club Nintendo. I’m not sure why Nintendo didn’t just pack these into the game itself, but hey, free is free.
