As PetaPixel and the official release explains, the printer makes it possible to print out in-game images, and is based on Fujifilm’s Instax Mini Link smartphone printer, but with added Switch-themed red-and-blue accents.

A dedicated smartphone app lets Switch owners print out photos. Simply transfer an in-game screenshot to the app, crop and edit, add filters and frames, and then print out Instax photos. Easy!

Hey wait? This is a thing that exists? But the app is free. Can I use it to save the photos directly to my phone? I need to have them around so I can show off my shiny Pokemon.

And my Wooloo. He’s not shiny, but he beat the Champion.
