A camera add-on for the Game Boy that allowed users to take and edit simple photographs. Photos taken with the camera could be printed out with the Game Boy Printer peripheral. It also features a variety of minigames which allowed players to take a photo of their face to place on their character's body.

The camera is also well known for containing a number of bizarre images of the developers which would be displayed seemingly randomly along with text taunting users.
