For those who've been able to get hold of some AR cards for Kid Icarus: Uprising, there may have been some fun had in pitching iconic characters against each other with a number of backdrops. Ultimately, though, a dull piece of furniture isn't necessarily the most epic environment for a battle of the ages.

Readers of Nintendo Dream magazine in Japan are in luck, however, as free 'stage' cards are being given away in the most recent issue. By placing the stage card above the two standard cards, the AR feature will create an impressive battleground for the characters. It's a bit classier than your desk, right?

Like the AR characters themselves, the data for these stages is already on the game cart, so there's hope that these cards will make their way out of Japan in time. Would you want to get hold of these for your own AR battles?
