"Pokemon Snap" has been released in North America last Jan. 5 on Wii U Virtual console. The game was made available in the said region months following the European and Japanese releases.

"Pokemon Snap" Is Now Available In Nintendo 64 Menu Of Wii U Virtual Console

The "Pokemon Snap" in Wii U Virtual console is reportedly priced at $9.99. Given that the game has been playable on the standard Wii U console, some players are said to doubt the benefits of the Wii U Virtual console release.

Reports suggest that the "Pokemon Snap" release in Wii U Virtual console provides support for controllers outside the standard console like the Nintendo Pro Controller and the Wii U GamePad. Additional details further indicate that the "Pokemon Snap" players could likely be encouraged to choose the title considering the additional compatibility.

"Pokemon Snap" sequel, meantime, has been rumored to come to digital and physical stores. However, it appears that a bigger number of fans are more excited over the Poke Finder and its more updated features, GameRant reported.

Get "Pokemon Go" Holiday Starter Infestation Event

"Pokemon Go" holiday event segment, the one that allows players to receive a free incubator daily, is reportedly over. However, the part that allows the lures to last up to 60 minutes and rains down starter Pokemon like Squirtle, Bulbasaur and Charmander, including their evolutions all over the map is not over yet.

Based on reports, the half-segment of the "Pokemon Go" holiday event is definitely the most important limited time offering which Niantic has ever given to the game. In fact, players are advised to make the most out of it, according to Forbes.
