N64 Pokémon classic, Pokémon Snap, will be released on Wii U virtual console in Japan next week. The game will be available for purchase starting Wednesday, April 4th. A trip to Pokémon island will cost Japanese players 1028¥ (around 10 dollars), which is the standard price for mostN64 virtual console games.
There's no official statement on whether the game will come to other territories' Wii U eShops. It's very possible, however, as Pokémon Snap was released internationally for the original Wii's virtual console.
Pokémon Snap was one of many successful spin-off games for the N64. In it, you take control of Todd Snap, a Pokémon photographer tasked by Professor Oak to assemble a photo album of all of the island's 63 Pokémon in their natural habitats. Interestingly, Snap was originally announced as a 64DD game, a N64 accessory that gave the console the ability to play disc-based games. The game was eventually developed and released on a cartridge because of the 64DD's very poor sales in Japan.
