Nintendo has just announced the list of games coming to the Wii U eShop and Virtual Console in Japan next week, and among the titles is one gem that is sure to capture many people’s attention: Pokémon Snap. The cult classic spin-off came out on the Wii VC back in 2007, but this marks its official debut on the Wii U service. Presumably, the release will come with just the standard off-TV functionality that the Wii U provides to most titles, but we can always hope that Nintendo will go the extra mile and add something special into it—like, say, motion controls for aiming the camera? No word on that happening, of course, or on it coming to the Virtual Console in the West any time soon, but fans can certainly hope.
Of course, Snap is just one of many amazing titles being released next week. Here’s the full list of games that Japanese gamers will be able to get from the eShop:
Wii U Virtual Console
Pokemon Snap (N64, 1,080 yen)
Densetsu no Starfy 3 (GBA, 702 yen)
Magic Hammer – 500 yen
Simple DL Series Vol. 40 – 500 yen
3DS Virtual Console
Donkey Kong Country 2 (SNES, 823 yen)
Pilotwings (SNES, 823 yen)
Super Metroid (SNES, 823 yen)
