Free Kid Icarus: Uprising Cards Fly Onto North American Club Nintendo

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

No time to waste

Lucky Club Nintendo members in North America now have a chance to pick up a free pack of AR cards for the upcoming 3DS release, Kid Icarus: Uprising. For those not in the know, AR cards unique to this title will be used for simulated battles, with the victor apparently earning in-game currency and goodies. With plenty of cards available and details on distribution still sketchy, this is a good early chance to start collecting.

The pack will include cards called Great Reaper, Drill Arm and Palutena (Rare), though we're not convinced how rare this last card will be considering it's part of a giveaway. That said it's a limited time offer with a set quantity, so its a good idea to head straight over to the Kid Icarus giveaway page and login for your free pack. The game itself is released on 23rd March, and keep an eye out for our review before it hits stores.

Thanks to Edgar Martinez for the heads up.

Alright, now for real, my brother is subscribed to GameInformer, so I was able to get the Power of Flight or something like that.

Free cards? No strings attached? Amazing!
Though 3 isn't very many.

"Your Free Kid Icarus: Uprising AR Idol Cards will ship within 6-8 weeks. Once shipped, allow 1-2 weeks for delivery."

It may be a long while before we get this game (though it is #1 in my Gamefly Q), but it looks like the cards won't be here soon anyway. I aslo got the free 1 in Game Informer.

Free is good. Free cards, free shipping, no coins even.

Already put in an order for these AR Cards about an hour ago. Can't wait to see how the game's story is once this game surfaces.

I ordered them immediately after I heard about it, so I should have four cards ready when I get the game. The first one was from the Game Informer magazine, of course, so good for Club Nintendo to let us have some cards!

Wow, awesome! Thanks for the heads up :) Just ordered mine. However, I no longer receive Game Informer, so I guess I won't be getting that one. :/ sigh. Can't wait for the game's release! :D

Awesome! I'll be getting my Game Informer issue in about two days I believe, so I'll have that Power of Flight card in addition to these awesome Club Nintendo ones.

@Bowser When preordering at certain retailers in Canada, and Austrailia, (EB Games, Best Buy) They give you 5 free cards. 6 Free Cards for buying the game, another 3 for this event, and the Power of Flight GI Card.
@NintendoLife Do you know anyone who got some cards, when at GDC?

Will this take long to ship, because it's free and I don't know 1 Club Nintendo person who would pass on this opportunity (Not Medusa Herself)

@player310 Thanks a ton :) I didn't take the time to read the whole article, and rushed over to club nintendo to get them because it was a limited amount of cards ( I assumed it would be on the rewards page ). Now I got my order :)
