What are AR Cards?

AR Cards

Every Nintendo 3DS system comes packed with six AR Cards. Launch the built-in AR Games™ application and place an AR Card on a flat surface, and, looking through your Nintendo 3DS Camera, you'll see characters and game content appearing right on your kitchen table, your backyard patio, or anywhere else that you can think of. Pull out the Mario™ card to see everyone's favorite Nintendo® hero, or use the Question Block card to pose and take 3D photos with your Mii™ character, or play a number of exciting built-in games. The possibilities are endless, so experiment and have fun!
