Pokemon fans rejoice! After months of teases, and promises, Nintendo has FINALLY unveiled that Pokemon Snap is coming to the Wii U Virtual Console, and it’s doing so tomorrow!
Pokemon Snap originally arrived on the N64 in 1999. It was a game based off the character Todd (ha, ha, ha) from the Pokemon Anime. While it was very different from most Pokemon games, both handheld and console, it became an instant classic, and getting a following that has maintained its loyalty to this day. In fact, fans have been wanting a sequel to the game for nearly two decades. We kinda/sorta got it in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, but a full-on sequel has eluded us. Maybe we can get it for the Nintendo Switch? Time will tell.
The game will be available for purchase for $9.99. So, if you’re ready to test your camera skills once again, dive back in to Pokemon Snap when it releases tomorrow.
“Travel to Pokémon Island and meet Professor Oak to begin a safari to take the best possible photographs of 63 different Pokémon. The island has many types of climates and environments to explore, along with secret activities and hidden passages to discover. Some of the Pokémon can be a little shy and won’t pose for the camera unless you tease them with special items! After you’re done, submit one picture of each Pokémon to Professor Oak, and he’ll judge it based on size, pose, technique, and number of Pokémon captured. Start practicing if you want to snap the perfect shot!”
