- By buying the game at the Nintendo World store in New York City on the 23rd of March.
- At a special event in select GameStop locations on the 14th of April.
- The April issue of Nintendo Power and the @Gamer in-store Best Buy magazine.
- The Nintendo booth in WonderCon taking place in Anaheim, California.
- The Nintendo booth at PAX East in Boston
Nintendo of Europe also revealed you’ll be able to order two packs of six augmented reality cards each from Club Nintendo for a total of 250 Stars. There’s also a new video showing off the control methods in the game that you can check out after the break.
