New Pokémon Snap isn't available until this Friday, but its first update is already live and ready to go.
The day-one patch updates the game to Version 1.1 and, as reported by Serebii, is required in order to make use of its online features. If you have the game preloaded on your Switch or are planning on downloading the game from launch day, the update will be installed automatically and you'll be all good to go.
If you're picking up a physical copy, however, you'll want to make sure to update to this latest version before diving in. The Version 1.1 patch won't be included on cart, and takes up 125MB of space on your system or SD card.
If you want to check out some gameplay footage ahead of Friday's launch, feel free to do just that right here. Before you go, though, let us know if you're excited for this one in the comments.
