Pokemon Snap Will Go Live On June 24


Nintendo has confirmed that Pokemon Snap will be added to Switch Online and the expansion pack on June 24. Originally released on N64 in 1999, Pokemon Snap deviated from the series’ usual RPGs as players were tasked with capturing Pokemon on film, not in PokéBalls.

Kirby developer HAL Laboratory was responsible for the game, which has become a cult hit with Pokemon fans over the decades. At a time when Pokemon only had two generations of pocket monsters and N64 carts had a notoriously small storage capacity, players could snap shots of up to 60 Pokemon in their natural habitat.

Last year, New Pokemon Snap debuted and fleshed out the safari experience with a more lively and engaging selection of Pokemon on Switch. “New Pokemon Snap is an all-new adventure that’s absolutely delicious to embark on, incorporating new generations of Pokemon and stunning environments that truly feel alive,” Jenae Sitzes wrote in GameSpot’s New Pokemon Snap review.


Switch Online’s May update added the NES pinball machine, beat-em-up Rival Turf and mascot platform Congo’s Caper a few weeks ago. You can grab them all through a Switch Online subscription or the more expensive Expansion Pass which also offers a collection of Genesis games to enjoy.

If classic Pokemon aren’t enough, you can also expect Pokemon Scarlet and Violet at the end of the year.
