Japan: Pokemon Snap Is Coming To The Wii U Virtual Console

Japanese gamers will soon be able to get their hands on Pokemon Snap albeit via the Wii U Virtual Console. People have been crying out for a new Pokemon Snap especially since the Wii U GamePad appears to be perfectly suited to the game. Still, we haven’t received one, so this will have to do for the time being! Pokemon Snap on the Wii U Virtual Console will support the GamePad, Classic Controller Pro, or the Wii U Pro Controller. It will cost ¥1,028 ($9) and will be available for purchase next week. Let’s hope it comes to the west.

  1. What Nintendo needs to do with this (Which they wont because Nintendo) is add gyro controls and a place to post pictures on the miiverse. Maybe pop it on the 3DS too? Or even better an HD remake

  2. We really need a new “Snap” at this E3. One last game for the Wii U, perhaps? “Color Splash” was announced in a Direct this year. I can’t imagine they wouldn’t announce anything for the U, even with the NX right around the corner.

    1. It would fit perfectly. All Wii U games have been very low profile games (after all, all the focus is on the NX) but Pokémon Snap is a low profile game that is still deeply beloved.
      That said I hope it doesn’t get announced at E3, maybe during a direct. The digital event should focus 95% on the NX and it’s launch titles

      1. Lolololol 95% of Nintendos E3 on NX? Won’t happen. 25% will be for Wii U and 25% will be 3DS. 50% will be NX.

        1. Depends on how much Nintendo intends to support Wii U after the NX, which given what we’ve seen this past year(~ish) is low profile (aka a bit shit).
          Retro has already said that if they’re going to make a Metroid game, they will make it for the NX.

    1. I know, right?! Such a missed opportunity on Nintendo’s part. How they haven’t made a sequel to Snap on the Wii U or 3DS is beyond me. It makes so much sense given both consoles’ features. It’s not too late though. Am I being too optomistic for an E3 announcement?

  3. Good for Japan. Now when can we get this gem in the fucking States!? Oh & I’m sure Europe would want this, too!
