As discussed among the Nintendo 3DS development team in a recent edition of Iwata Asks, plans were made to develop a large AR card as a reward for Japan's Club Nintendo catalog. Now, just a couple of months after the system's launch in Japan, visitors to Club Nintendo can now get themselves a 2.4-by-1.5-foot AR card for 100 Club Nintendo points. One side shows the standard "?" design, but the reverse will feature the Mario design for summoning Mario, or putting his hat on your Nintendog.
Of course, we made our own giant AR cards, and... well, the less said, the better.
No news yet on if the card will make its way to the other Club Nintendo sites in America or elsewhere, but we don't think it's so ridiculous as to write it off.
