Pokémon Snap Arrives on the Virtual Console

Pokémon Snap Arrives on the Virtual Console

Pokémon Snap hit the Wii U Virtual Console in Europe a while ago, and tomorrow this beloved Pokémon spin-off game will finally be available on the Virtual Console in North America.

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to use gyroscope controls with it. The GamePad made Pokémon Snap seem like a natural choice for the Wii U, but it doesn’t look like we’ll ever get a Wii U Pokémon Snap game. Fans have long wondered why Nintendo has yet to make a Pokémon Snap sequel. The closest we’ve gotten is the Poké Finder in Pokémon Sun and Moon... »

While that sounds pretty crazy on the surface, Nintendo is no stranger to unusual crossovers. Although the crossover between Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem wasn’t quite what fans expected, Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE turned out to be a solid RPG, and the blend of Pokémon and Nobunaga’s Ambition in Pokémon Conquest earned it a spot on our list of the top 3 Pokémon spin-off games. With that in mind, here are a few other Nintendo crossovers we’d love to see. Fire Emblem x Dynasty Warriors The Dynasty Warriors series can be hit or miss with fans, but lately the series has branched out and pr... »
