This thread is for any thoughts, theories or confirmed evidence of how future 3DS games will use AR. We already know that you'll be able to bring your pet into the real world in Nintendogs & Cats...

I'm hoping for a Street Fighter game where Ryu appears on the AR Card and does a Hadouken. That would be awesome, but only when there's nothing on the table...

I think the most obvious implementation for AR would be Pokemon battles on your table. I don't know if this is possible but expanding on the Pokemon idea, maybe they could release a special Pokedex app that coinsides with all the Pokemon cards ever released. Just point the camera at the card and that Pokemon will appear out of it and the 3DS will give several facts about the Pokemon just like a real Pokedex. I think that would be really cool!

Some sort of RTS that takes place on the table would be cool. It would be awesome because you could physically look around the battlefield. Although, a huge AR card would probably be needed. :D

any type of cardgame could use AR to make something great, such as Yugioh or Magic the gathering, it would be great to see that.

For the next call of duty game, the game could come with the AR poster, which you put on the wall; the AR game will put a window on your wall, which you can look out of and see the Nazi Zombies coming. You have shoot them, before they get too close to you! O: I've never even played Nazi Zombies, but I think COD fans would like this idea.

I don't play any Star Wars games myself, but maybe you could use the AR cards as those hologram machines you see in the movies/games.

I wouldn't hold my breath for AR stuff to come.

It's rather limited, when you look at the current applications and their limitations. There is an AR-game using the gyros which just uses the images taken by the cams as background (Face Raiders) and there is AR stuff which relies on image recognition. The first game has no information about your position in the room except how much you turned into a certain direction. So there isn't much hope for elaborate game designs using this in an AR context. The card stuff can only reliably determine your position as long as you actually focus the cams on the card, which means you're forced to point the 3DS at a fixed position all the time. That limits the possibility of what you can do with it a lot. Whatever your game does, it has to take place within the limited area around the card, that you're able to focus together with the card.

In terms of technology this should be possible. The problem might be, if the low resolution cams in the 3DS are able to take images with sufficient quality in order to reliably identify the cards. And of course the effort to "teach" the software to recognize a thousand potentially very similarly looking cards.

Overall I'd already be more than happy, if they used the AR-cards to make a kind "AR-gallery" for some games. The usual suspect would be Pokemon, where the ability to put your team onto the table would integrate nicely into the pokedex. For other games, having such a 3D gallery of characters, vehicles or dioramas might also serve as a neat (potentially unlockable) bonus.

This would be cool if they could do it with the existing Pokemon cards and use it more to add more of a graphical presentation while playing against another person and if the other person has a 3DS if you could choose your attack based on what the card says and the Pokemon execute it on screen.

The part where you could choose your attack based on what the card says would not be possible; there's no way the camera would be able to pick up the info on the card. It would be cool though... if, only, it could be done... :P

The attacks are written on the card. OCR could be used to read the bold text to read what it is. Also if there was a separate application written it could have a data base of all existing Pokemon cards.

I hope, I do something similar with Yu-Gi-OH. Collecting card data and play your existing deck in the game....Come to think of it, table top cardgames won't work unless its something like that one AR console that was made for this one CG that I can't remember the name of.

New idea: If there was a game for 3DS about music, where the AR would make the whole band appear on a tiny stage on the AR card and play a song. In fact, if you printed the AR Card design onto a bigger sheet of paper.... heh heh, that would be awesome

I'd love to see if Nintendo could sell more AR Games through 3DSWare. I'd buy them.

@Xkhaoz - Looking at how there's already an AR shop in the app itself, you never know what might happen.

How about a multiplayer fps where each player sticks an AR card on his forehead and you run around trying to shoot each other.

A Pokemon game could come with 12 cards, numbered 1 to 6 in two colors. The numbers would be linked to the 6 Pokemon you can carry in your game, so it wouldn't have to recognize every possible Pokemon off the card itself.

Hand recognition seems like a pretty important thing to work on, because AR will get extra cool if you can also use your hands to interact with whatever's on the screen.
