The Nintendo 3DS comes with several Augmented Reality cards for use in its built-in AR Games. When I first experienced these, right after the system was first released, I started having excited visions of a 3DS Pikmin game that used AR to set the game in your own home. While that is probably still a pipe dream, we can at least savor the 3DS games that do employ augmented reality.

Inspired by the vastly underappreciated geeklist, Games Featuring Streetpass (3DS)

This is the one included with the system, which makes use of the cards also included with the system.

Each copy of the game comes with 6 random cards out of a set of 20; however, these 20 are but a sliver of the greater set of over 400 cards wow available through various means. The game displays AR 3D images for up to three cards at once, allowing you to take 3D photos of the characters. Additionally, if two cards are pointed at one another, their characters will battle.

View one of the AR Cards included with the system, and watch your pet walk around. If it's one of the franchise character cards, the pet will wear a hat themed on that character's world.

You can open gates by pointing at circular objects. This is the first AR game I've seen that works with any ol' object. Although its use is generic, it's a very exciting concept.
