Nintendo 3DS AR Cards Revealed

The 3DS supposedly comes with 6 different AR cards out of the box, but we’ve only seen one of them so far. A recently snapped photo reveals the other 5.
Ever since the system was first revealed at E3 2010, AR – augmented reality – has been one of the 3DS’s most tantalizing new features. Nintendo has been wooing visitors to its preview events with a special AR card depicting a ? Block from the Mario franchise, showing off how the 3DS is able to identify the card in 3D space and construct a convincing game world right on your tabletop. As impressive as the effect is, this card is only one of a set of six included with the 3DS; but until now, no one knew what the other 5 looked like.

The above image has found its way onto the Internet, and finally reveals the full set. As you can see, every card is themed after a major Nintendo franchise – Mario, Zelda, Kirby, Metroid, and Pikmin are all represented here. It’s logical to assume that each card presents a challenge to the player themed around the franchise it represents – can you image Ridley flying out of the Samus card to shred your face apart? – but that’s just my guess at this point.
The image was revealed as part of a promotional unboxing UK retailer GAME conducted via Twitter to stir up some buzz for the 3DS. Doesn’t it make you jealous that they’re already starting to receive 3DS units, but won’t put them on shelves until March 25th?

woodR4 v1.23 Firmwares update

I can hardly contain my excitement for this GBATemp exclusive. Yellow Wood Goblin has just released to me his brand new firmware, Wood R4 v1.04. This firmware is a replacement for the R4 1.18 firmware and only supports the Original R4  Flash Linkers. This Firmware is not for R4 clones, use of it on clones may result in unforeseen problems. When asked why support the R4 , his response was "why not?"! The code is based in part on advancements made during the last public release of Wood R.P.G., users can expect the same coding quality, the same compatibility, basic wii-connectivity, and future updates.
This is the 1st public release, and exclusive to GBATemp. There are bound to be things that do not work as they should, so please take the time to test and report your findings. Please be sure to make use of this discussion thread to post your bug reports.
GBATemp will closely follow this thread for potential party poopers. Remember this is an achievement to be embraced not a chance to voice your opinions on the R4, the history of the R4 , or the people who choose to continue to use their original R4 .

Setup:Place the _rpg directory and the _DS_MENU.DAT into the ROOT of your microSD card.
Everything that works on Wood R.P.G. should work on Wood R4. Wood R.P.G. has 99.8% compatibility. I won't say it is 100% because there could be the occasional glitch or bug. All future Anti-Piracy ROMs are not supported but could possibly be fixed on a 1:1 basis.
There is confirmation that this is working on the Original R4 , the R4  SD clones, and the M3 Simply.
This is a port of Wood R.P.G. so this will use the same skins used no the R.P.G. as the GUI has not changed.
Wood R4 supports RAW format save files named ROM-NAME.nds.sav. You will need to rename your save files in order to make use of them.
Why use this over YSMENU?
This is a full firmware replacement. Expect all of the features of a modern firmware. Including Wii-connectivity, Cheats, Themes, Short-cuts, etc. Everything Wood R.P.G. does on the Acekard R.P.G. this firmware does on the R4 (except for on the fly A.P. patching for yet to be released ROMs).
This firmware will continue to be updated, tweaked, fixed, optimized, etc. It is time to say goodbye to YASU's YSMENU by giving your R4  Wood!

1.23 Core:• sav-files timestamp updated on game launch.
• fatfs updated to 0.08b.
• 'mysims - skyheroes (usa)' fixed.
• 'eigo de tabisutu - little charo (japan)' fixed.
• 'zombie daisuki (japan)' fixed.
• 'kaiju busters powered (japan)' fixed.
• freezing on entering into underground in 'pokemon diamond/pearl/platinum' and freezing on entering into gts terminal in 'pokemon heartgold/soulsilver' on some microsds fixed.
• 'blue dragon - awakened shadow (europe)' fixed.
R.P.G. & R4  Specific:
• microsd reading speed increased. noticeable improvement can be seen at least on sandisk microsdhc cards.

wood R4 1.23 download
(Fixed the anti-burn the latest games, including the monster nemesis enhanced version, I love Japan and South Korea the latest version of zombie games, please use the original ROM for the game):
