The original Pokemon Snap hit Nintendo Switch Online on June 24.


Another classic N64 game has arrived on  Nintendo Switch . The beloved Pokemon spin-off Pokemon Snap is now available on the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service.

Like other N64 games, the title is accessible through the Nintendo 64 - Nintendo Switch Online app. This app is available exclusively as part of Nintendo Switch Online's Expansion Pack plan, a premium tier of the online service that includes extra perks like additional 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 new game that hit the Switch on June 24. Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is also now available for the system. You can download a free demo of the title from the Nintendo eShop, and any progress you make will carry over to the full game if you purchase it.
