Namco Bandai released their new game at the 2011 Tokyo Toy Show, the Kamen Rider AR CARDASS game! The format is similar to the Ganbaride Arcade game, but for “iDevices” (smart devices) with a camera and iOS 4.0.
The game works similar to the Ganbaride Arcade Game, only instead of scanning the card, the AR system scans the AR code on the card to collect it’s info.
Here’s the official game description from iTunes:
“Call out a Kamen Rider from the AR logo written on your Carddass card! If you win the battle initiated with the rider that is challenged, the rider of the card can be registered to your collection! Build up your team with as many new riders as you can! See the official site for more details about the “Kamen Rider AR carddass!”
If you want to get the most out of the game, you’ll need to make sure that the card has the AR logo on it. Otherwise it won’t be compatible with the game. Even if you don’t have the cards for certain characters, you can use AR codes from other collectibles, such as special coins, or you can get special collectibles from Gashapon using the Collections feature.
Here’s a video demonstration of the app: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zByGkU3NKtI&feature=player_embedded
