Pokemon Snap coming to VC, bringing new features

Pokemon SnapIf you owned a Nintendo 64 a few years back, you may remember Pokemon Snap. The on-rails camera-based FPS where the entire goal was to photograph Pokemon was a fairly popular game, and showed just how popular that Pokemon name was.

Nintendo is hoping some fans have fond memories of that game, as they plan to release it on Virtual Console on December 10th in North America. That itself isn’t big news (surprising, maybe, but not big). What is big news about the release is that Nintendo is adding VC features to the game, such as allowing you to share your snapshots with friends and the Internet via the Wii’s message boards.

One of the largest complaints about VC has been that – unlike XBLA – Nintendo doesn’t really offer any updates on the games. With this addition to Snap, we may see a different tune in the future.

Even with the feature, though, I’ll have to pass on Snap. It’s just not the same without being able to print off stickers at Blockbuster.
