So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

The third title of the Mario Artist suite for the ill-fated 64DD, used to transfer content from the other entries (Paint Studio, Talent Studio, and Polygon Studio) to an online service.

Game Boy Printer Support

As with Paint Studio, Communication Kit supports the Game Boy Printer through unreleased peripherals.

It supports the unreleased 64GB Cable shown at Spaceworld 1999. If detected from one of the controller ports, the game will unhide the Game Boy Printer (Pocket Printer) icon in the main menu, near the Bonus Contents icon (which may be hidden).

This cable plugs into a Game Boy Printer cartridge, which then the Game Boy Printer plugs into the Game Boy's link port. This cartridge only acts as a middleman as Paint Studio sends and receives RAW Game Boy link data. Oddly enough, alongside support for the original Game Boy Printer, it has support for an unannounced "Game Boy Printer Color" (referred to as Color Printer in the text) hardware which prints color images.

You can print in several directions, as well as splitting the image in 2 or 4. For the original Game Boy Printer menu, you can change the paper color, as well as brightness and contrast. The Game Boy Printer Color menu allows to change the brightness, contrast and hue.

Hidden Credits

Press B at the title screen, then C-Up, then Z after the Credits begin. This will show your cursor on the credits and when you press Z, you can shoot roles and names to change them to Katakana or Hiragana. This cannot be done in the other Mario Artist games.
