New Pokemon Snap released
Photo taking game is out today
Nintendo has announced that the New Pokémon Snap is now available.
As a budding Pokémon photographer, you have arrived in the Lental region to participate in a Pokémon research program alongside the region’s expert, Professor Mirror, and his assistant, Rita. You’ll be helping them with their ecological survey to photograph Pokémon thriving in nature. You’ll venture from island to island riding in your trusty vehicle NEO-ONE, discovering wild Pokémon in their natural habitats.
Each of your photos will be assigned a star rating of one to four stars based on the rarity of the Pokémon behavior captured. Each photo’s total score—based on metrics like the Pokémon’s pose, size, direction it’s facing, and position in frame. Higher scores will earn rarer colors.
Players can use the re-snap and photo-editing functions to adjust photos’ brightness, blur, and zoom as well as add filters, stickers, and more. Photos can then be shared with others online.
New Pokémon Snap is available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.
