New Pokemon Snap announced
A follow-up to the 1999 game is coming soon
Nintendo has announced New Pokémon Snap, a follow up to the 1999 game of the same name.
In New Pokémon Snap, players will take on the role of a budding Pokémon photographer and work with the Lental region expert, Professor Mirror, and his assistant, Rita, on an ecological survey to photograph Pokémon thriving in nature.
Wild Pokémon are all around and have adapted to thrive in all the various natural expanses of the Lental region. You’ll be able to spot Pokémon lurking in all sorts of places, including secluded hideaways. Players will be able to interact with Pokémon by throwing a Fluffruit, to catch their attention or watch them eat. You can even use this fruit to help draw out Pokémon into a variety of situations to see how they react.
Professor Mirror will evaluate and score players’ photos taken on their adventures. Pokémon photography is evaluated based on the subjects’ poses, how large they appear, how directly they’re facing the camera and where they fall in frame. As players take more photos and fulfill research on their journey, they may see Pokémon look and behave in entirely new ways.
New Pokémon Snap launches in stores, in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch and on Nintendo.com on April 30 for $60 USD / $80 CAD.
