AR games are video games designed to operate on a Nintendo 3DS system using one of the six AR Cards included with each system purchased. You just start the AR Games application included with each Nintendo 3DS system and place an AR Card of your choosing on a flat surface to view using the camera on the Nintendo 3DS system.

The AR game you want to play will appear like magic on the surface you have selected. There are a number of different AR games players can select from, including everyone's favorite Nintendo hero, Mario. With the new Moverio BT-200 intelligent glasses, the future of AR games and gaming is looking a lot... fuzzier.

During the months and years ahead Nintendo 3DS system users can expect to be playing AR games like Pokedex 3D, Kid Icarus: Uprising, and Tetris: Axis and even more.
