Nintendo has recently filed for a patent which uses the same technology as amiibo which is near field communication. The objects patented appear to be a trading card set. The patent which was picked up by Digital Trends suggests that Nintendo could be looking to create Pokémon cards that interact with the Nintendo 3DS or possibly the Nintendo Switch.
“The trading cards refer to cards on which variously different pictures are depicted and a purpose thereof is collection and exchanged. Namely, the trading cards are cards manufactured and sold aiming at exchange or collection of pictures on each surface thereof.”
“Each card represents either rock, paper, or scissors (as shown in the upper lefthand corner). And each card shows a number 1-6 on a die on the right side. It would seem that users could upload data to their 3DS’ and play against one another in games of chance.”
You mean exactly like the Animal Crossing amiibo cards that are already out? They have the same rock-paper-scissors and dies.
These character images have serious meme potential.
John is my new favorite Nintendo character.
Damn you beat me to it!

Unless it’s Pokemon TCG amiibo, Smash Bros. Amiibo, Star Fox Amiibo, or even Kid Icarus Amiibo I’m not interested.
Super Smash Bros collectable card game?
I heard Beth was a super rare card.
AND, it’s a Toys R Us exclusive, so you better buy it now before scalpers hoard up all of them from the going out of business deals!!
That Mike is a shiny! PogChamp
I don’t give a shit what they are are amiibo cards of. The trading part turns me off because that means it’s like a box of chocolates so you’ll never know what ya gonna get. No thanks. I don’t like “random item generators” anymore because I got turned off by them years ago.
Gen 8 starters leaked
Take my money nintendo.
Instead of Smash Amiibo, we getting Smash cards this time?
I don’t think so
If we do, I hope it’s a collectable card game.
“…Digital Trends suggests that Nintendo could be looking to create Pokémon cards that interact with the Nintendo 3DS or possibly the Nintendo Switch” Have you followed Nintendo lately? All the 3DS is getting are ports of existing games, Game Freak already said they’re done with the 3DS, so why would amiibo cards be made for games that don’t use them? Think, this is clearly for Switch moving forward, especially with Game Freak already saying Ultra Sun/Moon were the final things they’re going to do for it!
NFC Trading Card game is a much better invest than Amiibo toys since you can actually play with the cards and the game with them. I’m also sure it’s a lot cheaper. I prefer cards over useless $13 Microtransaction toys.
Who approves these articles? That’s clearly the patent for the Animal Crossing amiibo cards. Someone on this team please moderate this garbage
So John, Beth, and Mike walk into a bar…
Those drawings are hilarious.

Beth looks like a rejected God of Destruction
Whatever this will be Im excited. Nintendo usually has some cool plans when they file patents.
