Why not sign up for a (free) account?
Here is a shot of some of the characters in pose.

Here is some Graffiti and Face Raiders Footage too

Can't figure out how to embed this video.

That Pikachu thing was pretty cool. Although, this means that soon we'll be seeing bouncing penises all over Youtube.

I was wondering if Face Raiders would accept pictures like the ones they put in. That means we can actually use pictures of Andross and pretend we are playing Star Fox!

Here's another Star Viewer pic

WTF is Samus' model so ridiculously ugly. It's like they completely botched the sheen of her armor. Yuck.

Why are the models so bad? I expected Smash Bros Trophy quality at least...they're just statues aren't they?

No, they're not statues. They are 3D models that are being rendered in real-time. They will probably be animated in future games. If you look at this pic:

You can see the '?' dude from the first AR game. In first AR game, he is completely animated. However, in this mode, he's not. Like I mentioned earlier, they probably didn't use animation in this mode because it's solely for taking pictures and will make it easier to take pictures of them in various poses and place them exactly how you like in the picture.

However, I am very disappointed with the Samus model because the sheen effect looks seriously fucked up.

Aw, so cute, I can't wait to have those little buddies on my desk.

Samus's armor does look strange but maybe it's cooler looking IRL, when you can rotate the camera and the see the light reflect.

So this thing has Mario, Metroid, Zelda, Kirby AND Pikmin mini-games packed in?! Or do you just mean that the characters can be used in mini-games like Target and such?

Apparently when using AR cards with Nintendogs the dog will have a hat corresponding to the AR card used.


Also, for those who can't wait Nintendo provides a PDF so you can print out your own AR cards if you lose them:

I can't believe I didn't try this when I played with the damn thing.

Hmm, I'm not sure which grid style I'll eventually go with...

I'll probably do 4x4 like on the Wii.

I think I'm going Wii style too. If there's too many icons on screen it'll just look like a cluttered mess. *cough* iPhone *cough*

Looks like there will be 8 more unlockable AR games by using Game Coins from the pedometer. That makes it a total of 14 AR games.

The following 8 are as follows:

AR Clock
AR Map
Target Shooting 2
Mini Golf 2
Free Camera
Free Fishing
Fishing Collection
Level Editor

Wow, I didn't realize there were that many AR games built in.

Also, check out the huge Mario!

This seems like an interesting thread. I'll bump it and check it out later after walking the dog.

Is it wrong that I find this hilarious

I honestly didn't even think of it but that was hilarious. I'm kind of excited for those huge AR cards announced to come to Club Nintendo. Finally, I might use some coins!

The problem is you can just download the regular sized ones and blow them up to A3 etc.. so why bother using stars on the cards.

@Simbabbad Yeah in the recent NWR podcast the guy is talking about how he was playing Face Raiders and scanning in faces that he had laying around in print, I forget his examples. Anyway, someone suggested that you could scan things besides faces, there was a very long pause, some awkward laughter and... I think we all know what they were thinking about.

Light bulbs. AMIRITE?
