Grab your apples and your Pester Balls, PokéFans in Europe and Australia, as the Nintendo 64 classic Pokémon Snap is heading to the Wii U Virtual Console this Thursday!

In Pokémon Snap you take control of the aptly named Todd Snap as you make your way around Pokémon Island in the on-rails ZERO-ONE vehicle, taking pictures of all the native Pokémon wildlife for Professor Oak’s approval. A good chunk of the Kanto Pokédex is represented, and there are a lot of secrets and tricks you can uncover to find rare Pokémon, get the best photos and unlock the final stage.


The game is fondly remembered by many, so, in a year filled with Pokémon nostalgia, it’s no wonder Nintendo chose to re-release it now. There’s no word yet on a North American launch, but we’ll be sure to let you know if and when it is announced.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
