Pokemon Snap N64 Is Coming to Nintendo Switch on June 24 – CNET

Another classic N64 game is coming to Nintendo Switch this week. Nintendo is adding the original Pokemon Snap to the Nintendo Switch Online service on Friday, June 24.

Like other N64 games, the title will be accessible through the Nintendo 64 – Nintendo Switch Online app once it goes live. This app is available exclusively as part of Nintendo Switch Online’s Expansion Pack plan, a premium tier of the online service that includes additional perks like more retro game libraries and select DLC. 

An individual Expansion Pack membership costs $50 per year, while a family plan costs $80. The latter covers up to eight Nintendo Accounts across multiple systems.

Originally released in 1999, Pokemon Snap is one of the Pokemon series’ first spin-off games. Rather than capturing Pokemon, players are instead tasked with photographing the monsters in their natural habitat. At the end of an outing, your photos are evaluated by Professor Oak.

Pokemon Snap marks the sixteenth N64 game to arrive on the Nintendo Switch Online plus Expansion Pack service to date. In addition to N64 games, the Expansion Pack plan offers a library of classic Sega Genesis titles, as well as access to select Switch DLC, including Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Happy Home Paradise expansion, Splatoon 2’s Octo Expansion and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s Booster Course Pass.

Pokemon Snap isn’t the only game coming to Switch on June 24. That same date, Nintendo is releasing Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. A free demo of the title is available to download from the Nintendo eShop, and any progress you make will carry over to the full game if you purchase it.
