For the second week in a row the downloads are a bit light. Perhaps this is a sign that development has fully shifted from Wii U to Switch. The lead game this week is Pokémon Snap, a game that has you go on a Safari to take the best pictures you can of the various monsters.
The rest is below:
This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:
- Virtual Console on Wii U
- Pokémon Snap – The Nintendo 64 cult classic is now on the Wii U console! Travel to Pokémon Island to embark on a safari and take the best possible in-game photographs of 63 different Pokémon. The island has many types of climates and environments to explore, along with secret activities and hidden passages to discover. Some of the Pokémon can be a little shy and won’t pose for the camera unless you tease them with special items. After you’re done, submit one picture of each Pokémon to Professor Oak, and he’ll judge it based on size, pose, technique and number of Pokémon captured. Can you snap the perfect shot?Nintendo eShop sales:
