Nintendo is launching Series 2 AR cards for Kid Icarus: Uprising, the company announced today.

The second series of AR cards, which allow players to battle each other in augmented reality thanks to the 3DS's camera, offers new characters, enemies, items, and weapons for fans to collect. Series 2 also includes location cards, so AR Card Battles can now take place against the backdrop of various in-game settings.

Beginning tomorrow, August 3rd, Nintendo will give out Series 2 card packs at weekly events at the Nintendo World Store in New York, held every Friday from 6 to 8 p.m., as well as other "select retail locations" to be announced later. In addition, Nintendo will offer Series 2 cards at their booths at PAX Prime (Aug. 31st through Sept. 2nd) and New York Comic-Con (Oct. 11th through 13th).

Kid Icarus: Uprising is available now for 3DS, having launched on March 23rd. Our own Griffin McElroy was a big fan — check out his full review.
