The Game Boy Camera (Japanese: ポケットカメラ Pocket Camera) is a basic image-capturing device (technically software using the basis of a Game Pak with the addition of a camera) that allows Game Boy users to view, take, edit, and store monochrome images using a Game Boy, Game Boy Color, or Game Boy Advance. It was developed by Nintendo, with Pokémon stamps by Game Freak/Creatures, Inc.. The peripheral came with built-in editing software and four bonus games. The unit was available in several different colors.

Release information[edit]

The Game Boy Camera was released in 1998 alongside the Game Boy Printer, which allowed hard copies of captured and edited images to be printed.
