Pokémon Snap hits the Wii U Virtual Console

Fans of the Nintendo 64 game Pokémon Snap are everywhere, at least in the fandom’s older demographic, and they can finally enjoy a slice of nostalgia on their Wii U soon. Younger fans will also be able to experience the memorable photog game for themselves as well. Starting in Japan, the title will be coming to the Wii U’s Virtual Console for ¥1,028 ($10 pricepoint). This means it probably won’t be long until the game gets a North American and European release.

If you need a refresher, Snap tasked players with taking photos of Pokémon while riding in the Zero-One. Some Pokémon needed to be coaxed a bit to catch their good side and players could throw pester balls or apples to get a better shot. Although short, the game was a very unique take on the series and developed somewhat of a cult following.

What do you think? Ready to take up your role as Todd Snap one more time?
