The N64 app For Nintendo Switch Online has once again been updated, now being brought up to version 2.4.0. It’s main purpose is simply to add Pokemon Snap to the service, as the game released earlier today.

However, it is changing a few additional things under the hood. As per usual, no patch notes were issued for this update, but well-known dataminer OatmealDome was able to find the additional adjustments made to the software, which you can see for yourself below.

Pokemon Snap for Nintendo Switch Online was shown off earlier this week, and with it Gamexplain has put together yet another video comparing the visuals of this version to those of the original N64 game.
