The lights are on
If you were a child of the 1980s (or are familiar with the action figures of the era), you might recognize the style of the Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon character cards featured below.
These bring me back to my youth… or they would if Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon were really a game from the 1980s. These look exactly like the kind of thing I cut out of toy packages and kept with my action figures. It was important to know the power ratings, so my friends and I could "authentically" recreate battles between heroes and villains.
You don't have long to wait before Rex Colt, Darling, and Spider take on Sloan's Evil Forces. Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon arrives on May 1, 2013, for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC.

Even if I didn't play the original, I might just get this because of how *** awesome it is.
Where is the blood dragon card ?
this game just keeps getting better and better!
Man, any 80s (or even 90s) kid would've died for cards this cool. If it wasn't 2013, I would've pictured these being on store shelves by now.
The character pictures remind me of G.I.Joes.
No Spider is not worth a Molotox...maybe a Rex Colt though.
Blue-eyes blood dragon.
You had me a trading cards! =p
This game is going to be a nostalgia nuke to the brain for me. I'm so excited!!
I like the little descriptions at the bottom.
This is going to be the most fun stand alone spin off from a game in quite a long time.
These are pretty awesome. They remind me of the cards that were included on the back of all TMNT figure boxes.
