Valhalla, N.Y. - FUJIFILM Corporation in collaboration with Nintendo Co., Ltd. is revolutionizing how gamers can share their game play, featuring the introduction of the INSTAX Mini Link® for Nintendo Switch Smartphone Printer (hereinafter "Mini Link Special Edition").

The new Mini Link Special Edition and related product App is expected to be released to authorized Fujifilm product dealers on April 30, 2021, in conjunction with the launch of the New Pokémon Snap game for the Nintendo SwitchTM system. The App allows filters and frames to be added to screenshots taken using the Nintendo Switch capture function, which can be printed onto INSTAX instant images via the Mini Link Special Edition for users to display and share. A simple QR Code scan of the game screen using the Mini Link Special Edition App allows the image to be printed with a variety of frames based on characters from Nintendo Switch games including New Pokémon Snap, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Super Mario™ Odyssey. Current INSTAX MINI LINK Smartphone printer users can also download this new App for free, for use with their existing INSTAX MINI LINK Smartphone printer product*2.
To celebrate this collaboration, the Mini Link Special Edition will be featured in Ash White, with red accents on the top surface, and with the power button accented in blue, denoting the signature colors of the Nintendo Switch system. It will be available not only as a single printer, but also in a special bundle with a customized silicone case designed with the popular Pokémon Pikachu. The special bundle will be released in a limited quantity several weeks after release of the Mini Link Special Edition.
