One of the most beloved entries in the Pokémon series is finally making its way to the Wii U Virtual Console this week.

Originally intended for the 64DD add-on, Pokémon Snap launched in 1999 (2000 in Europe) on the Nintendo 64 and for many fans presented the first look at Pocket Monsters in 3D. The game plays like an on-rails shooter, with the objective being to photograph as many different Pokémon types as possible.

So far this has only been confirmed for Europe this week, but we'd assume that a North American release is very probable. Pokémon Snap was previously released on the Wii Virtual Console in 2007.
