Inside Games has been experimenting with the AR Cards and discovered if you print a larger Mario AR card you get a larger Mario. Cel-shaded Link and Kirby, however, are the same size even if you print a larger card.


Club Nintendo in Japan will soon offer a large AR Card as a premium item. Purchase this and you can take a photo with a life-size Mii.
