New Wii Channel for Japan - Print Your Photos!

Japan gets a new Wii channel out of the blue today - What seems to translate as the "Digital Camera Print Channel" allows you to insert the SD card of your digital camera and select photos to print out!

From what we can make out from the Japanese press release (Or the badly translated Babelfish version), there's three things you can order:

  • A print of a single photo
  • An entire album full of photos (The album comes in two designs - Either standard black or white, or a version decorated with Mario characters!)
  • Business cards featuring your Mii

Once you make an order you will have to pay with your credit card, it appears to be impossible to use Wii Points. Once you've paid, Nintendo will receive the order and work together with Fuji Film to print the photos, which they will then ship to you.

No word on a release of this channel outside Japan, but it certainly sounds pretty nifty.
