Your best Nintendo 3DS AR Card photos

Link beheads Luigi, Samus blasts a Metroid plus real dogs and Nintendogs meet

Judging by the pictures you've been posting on ONM's Facebook page you've had great fun messing around with the AR Cards that come with Nintendo 3DS.

Of course you can blast dragons, go fishing and shoot balls into holes with the AR Cards but it's the Star Cards that you've been messing around with.

There are six AR Cards packaged with Nintendo 3DS and in addition to the question mark card you've got Star Cards featuring Mario, Pikmin, Link, Samus Aran and Kirby. You just need to point your open Nintendo 3DS at these cards and the characters will pop up. Then you can take photos of them in various poses. You can also use the AR Cards in Nintendogs + Cats to snap photos of your virtual puppy.

Ever since Nintendo 3DS launched two weeks ago you've been sending us pictures of these Nintendo stars, your Miis and Nintendogs in amusing poses.

We've got Link beheading Luigi, Samus shooting a Metroid and real dogs meeting Nintendogs. Take a look and let us know which one is your favourite.

    I couldn't get the AR games to work, low lighting levels I think, I'll should give it another try! Anyway, I like the dog pictures the best, being a doggy lover :)

    LOL! I love the Poor Luigi one, that is the best by far!
    Also, the Samus and Basketball one are really cool photos and I can't wait now to get me 3DS next weekend and start making my own!

    My favourite photo is the oreo one. It shows what people actually do when they see oreo's.

    Samus shooting and the first Nintendog meets real dog are both great!

    Ooh, two miis? How can you do that?

    The Miis going for the Oreos is my favourite of these pics. Link beheading Luigi is a close second. I'll have to wait till my birthday to get a 3DS but from what I've been reading, it'll be well worth the wait. Only four months to go! :)

    I like the way that in the 'Link beheads Luigi' photo, it looks like Mario and Kirby are trying to save good ol' Mr green. My favourite photo. :D
