The classic Nintendo 64 Pokemon photography title, Pokemon Snap, is a fan favorite among many Pokemon fans, mainly the older audience. Luckily, the game will soon be making its way to the Wii U virtual console over in Japan, bringing the warmth and fuzzy feelings the title offered to Nintendo’s latest console.

Many of us have been dreaming of a Pokemon Snap-like title on the Wii U that would utilize the gamepad as a sort of camera. Unfortunately this won’t be anything like that, as the title will merely be a direct Nintendo 64 port.


No information has been revealed as of yet regarding when Pokemon Snap will be available on the Wii U Virtual Console outside of Japan. However, odds are it won’t be too long of a wait for everyone else, considering Pokemon Snap is a very popular Nintendo 64 title.
