When I met with Nintendo, I tried the card game out. I started by pointing the 3DS at two cards, which made 3D models of Pit and Palutena pop up on the screen. The characters stood in place until a Nintendo representative rotated the cards so the two characters faced each other. I pressed A and a battle started… where Pit lost.

 

Curious to see if the game was based on luck I pulled the Pit and Palutena cards out again. Pit ran in place towards Palutena (just like last time), sparks flew, and Pit was defeated again. I asked if the fights were pre-determined and the Nintendo rep acknowledged they were.

 

Being the star character, I wondered who Pit could defeat. I put Pit against Magnus, a seasoned warrior with a sword as tall as him. Again, Pit lost. There was only one opponent left, a generic fighter (the three pack of cards I received after was different). Finally, a win for Pit! Maybe he would have had better luck fighting the Underworld Army (look a the Medusa card) instead of his own team…
