The six Nintendo 3DS Augmented Reality cards that come bundled with the new console include Mario, Link, Pikmin, Samus Aran and Kirby.
The 3DS hardware has six AR games and while Nintendo has revealed very little information about the full range, these cards (spotted on GAME's Twitter feed) could see you holding Nintendo's biggest stars in your hand.
The first AR Card to be revealed was the question mark card. By placing this card down on the table and pointing the 3D camera at it, it will magically transform into a tiny 3D dragon or an oasis with targets to shoot.
We've also seen Nintendogs + Cats using this technology to project puppies and kittens onto your hand. Again, this used the Question mark Card.
Nintendo President Satoru Iwata hopes the 3DS console's in-built software will be as big as Wii Sports.
