Surprise EU VC Release - Pokemon Snap + worldwide Photo Channel update
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
As some of you might have already noticed this morning, everybody's favourite blue Wii light was flashing. If you turn on your Wii you'll have gotten a message from Nintendo alerting you that the Wii Shop gift feature is now available (After a Wii Shop update). But that's not all!
Nintendo of Europe also saw fit to release Pokemon Snap together with the new feature, instead of Friday (It's anyone's guess if we'll get an update on Friday now!). Whether you like or hate Pokemon, this game is completely different from most other Pokemon games, so it's worth checking out if you've never played it before. Be warned that it is quite short, however. The European version also has the extra Wii feature. Check out the review:

In all regions of the world, there is now also a Photo Channel update available through the Wii Shop - This removes MP3 support and adds AAC support. Whether you choose to download it or not, be aware that MP3 playback in Wii games that use the SD card (Excite Truck, Endless Ocean) still works.
