    Have you ever longed to easily print screenshots of your favorite moments in games on the Nintendo Switch? Fujifilm is about to make such a concept a reality, with the unveiling of a new app for their Instax Mini Link, a small printer that connects to your smartphone. The Instax Mini Link, in tandem with the just-announced Instax for Nintendo Switch app, will connect to the device, where you'll be able to send your screenshots over to be printed. Fujifilm's printer is small enough to fit in your hand, and comes in white, with Neon Joy-Con colored red-and-blue accents. There's even a Pikachu case that you can get for the Instax Mini, making it look all the more like a device made to print your favorite pictures from the upcoming New Pokemon Snap game.

    You'll also be able to edit your images in the app, adding frames and borders from Super Mario, Animal Crossing, and Pokemon Snap franchises. Both the Switch edition of the Mini Link printer and Instax app are set to launch on Android and iOS on April 30th--the same day as the aforementioned game--with the device retailing for £109.99, where it'll be sold in the USA, UK, and Japan.

    It was nice to see no references to it as that is what every other website is doing.

    A printer for the switch? Nice

    One week before they release New Pokémon Snap? Coincidence? I think not.

    Those Instax devices are good too they are only a rip-off when it comes to new paper

    Definetly worth a shot tho

    I can see kids love this. To put up their favorite AC characters on the fridge, in their custom clothing.

    Yep just looked at the price of the paper and the cheapest I could find was £35 for a pack of 40 sheets.

    Thats crazy £35 for only 40 photos no thanks.

    Nah the real money in printers is in the ink/supplies. Everybody knows that.

    You want to buy reams of the custom paper and put that in your attic/basement/climate controlled storage vault and then sell that in a few decades when the nostalgia kicks in.

    just in time for pokecrap snap, is a pretty pointless product really when you can simply take your screenshots off your sd card if you really felt the need to print them off (which is again kinda pointless)

    "Print out this NSFW picture of Isabelle/Mario and you'll get homebrew on any firmware."
