Japan gets Pokemon Snap on Wii U next week

Oh snap!

Make-believe animal voyeur simulator Pokémon Snap is coming to Wii U next week, at least in Japan.

While you can already play the 1999 Nintendo 64 classic on the console through the Wii portal, this version adds support for the Wii U GamePad and Wii U Pro Controller.

Now, if you don’t mind, I’m going to go daydream about a full-on Pokémon Snap sequel that uses the GamePad as a camera lens à la sniping in ZombiU. Why the hell doesn’t that exist already?
