Pokémon Snap will be added to Switch Online’s Nintendo 64 library next week, Nintendo has announced.

It sees players travelling to Pokémon Island, where they meet Professor Oak and embark on a safari to take the best possible photographs of over 60 different creatures.

A Nintendo Switch sequel called New Pokémon Snap was released in April 2021.

The first-person game, which was co-developed by Bandai Namco, challenges players to photograph over 200 different types of Pokémon while exploring a colourful island setting.

Nintendo recently updated its Switch Online app with a patch that fixes a game-breaking bug in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, the most recent N64 title to be added to the service.

The Pokémon Company shipped around 60 million Pokémon games during its last financial year, which ended in March 2022.

It claims over 440 million units of all Pokémon-related software have now shipped since the series debuted in 1996.
