Any mystery solved, that is the motto of the Layton Detective Agency.” Professor Layton’s daughter, Katrielle Layton, runs the Layton Detective Agency together with the talking dog Sherl and her assistant Ernest Greeves, and solves the mysterious cases that occur each day in London. Originally, Katrielle started this work with the goal of finding her father, Hershel Layton, who suddenly disappeared, but her mystery-solving gradually became a hot topic due to its unexpected concept, leading various requests to come flying in.

Looks like Nintendo might have another idea in the works for amiibo. amiibo cards aren't anything new, as they've been out on shelves for quite some time now. The difference here is the fact that these amiibo cards are made as part of a trading card set. The patent shows them interacting with a 3DS, but it's clear that the change here is that the cards appear to be necessary to play the game. With this patent, it's easy to imagine a Pokemon game which uses amiibo cards. Something that combines the worlds of Pokemon video games and the trading card game scene.
