Looking to flash pictures of your favorite Mii? Instead of dragging friends and random strangers to your apartment, you may soon be able to carry such pictures around in your wallet.
This and many other bizarre photo tasks can be accomplished with the Wii’s Digicam Print Channel, a joint effort between Nintendo and Fujifilm. The joint service will allow users to post and print photos—all via the web.
Users can upload personal photos via an SD card. From there, you can compile albums of various photos, and even order business cards with your Mii or favorite Mario character.
For now, you’ll have to stick to “Mario Kart” or “Major League Eating.” Wired says that the free service is currently only available in Japan. Pricing starts at 30 cents per print, business cards are $5 for 30, and albums are going for $15. There’s no word on when the service will be available in other markets.
