On Apr 22, Fujifilm announced an upcoming collaboration with Nintendo for the launch of their new smartphone app: Instax Mini Link for Nintendo Switch. 

Designed for the Instax Mini Link smartphone printer, the Switch-themed version allows users to take snapshots in Nintendo games and print out physical photos of them.

After selecting a photo to print out, a QR code will be displayed on the screen of the user’s Nintendo Switch. 

Afterwards, users just need to scan the code with the app and the image will be transferred to their smartphone. Users can then crop the image before printing it out. 

You can also customise the app with three different themes from games such as Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Mario and New Pokémon Snap

Fujifilm has also added 59 new frame options, filters and characters users can choose from while decorating their images in the app. Some options include the games mentioned above.
