Nintendo pairing with Fujifilm to print Switch screens wirelessly

Nintendo has announced a new partnership with Fujifilm that will give the Switch the ability to print images wirelessly. This is being made possible by Fujifilm’s wireless printer instax mini Link and a new app that will be released on April 30, 2021.

This app will be capable of scanning screenshots from the Switch via QR code (similar to the sharing function currently on the Switch) and sending them directly to the printer for printing. Features in this app include adding borders from 3 Nintendo games (Super Mario, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and New Pokemon Snap), and putting different effects on images either from the Switch or a phone. 

The app will be free, and there is also an exclusive instax mini Link printer coming out to celebrate the collaboration. It will be Nintendo branded on the box and is an exclusive white, red, and blue color with a special edition Pikachu cover.

Finally, there have been some trailers and screenshots released alongside this news to further instruct how to use this software- and this can all be viewed below. There is no information to indicate that any of this will be coming to the West, and it seems to be only for Japan at this time.
