Updated Photo Channel coming to America/Europe?
Posted by Anthony Dickens
Nintendo's updated Photo Channel in Japan allows users to order prints or a photo book directly from the Wii.
Our friends at WiiWare World posted about the new service and what it allows you to do:
- 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.
Whilst this service has only been launched in Japan, a recent US Wii Software Update suggests that they might be working with a similar service in America and possibly Europe.

An update was made available for the Wii console which provides behind-the-scenes support for a new service that has been released only in Japan.
Clearly this is only rumour and only time will tell if Nintendo decide to support the service outside of Japan
