Nintendo eShop releases

Pokémon Snap comes to the Nintendo eShop this week.

With Pokémon Go continuing to sweep the world it should come as no surprise that the cult N64 game Pokémon Snap is finally making an appearance on Wii U Virtual Console.

The 1999 classic arrives this week and features the same Gen 1 cast of monsters that we are all so avidly tracking down with our smartphones. We haven’t played the game since it was previously released on the Wii Virtual Console back in 2007 but it was a charming then and if you can look past its rudimentary graphics it should still be a lot of fun. It will certainly take less of a toll on your shoe leather.

Also arriving this week is, well, we don’t know yet. Our usual contacts seem to have been abducted but we’ll update this page as soon as we get more information on the week’s releases.
