New Pokemon Snap has been announced at today’s Pokemon Presents, just about 20 years since the game originally released for the Nintendo 64 in March 1999.
It’s a rail shooter plus first person simulation where you go round taking photos of the various Pokemon you find. You’d assume this would be a pretty relaxing title, where you only need to cruise around to take photos on the Nintendo Switch.
Travel to unknown islands with beautiful scenery like lush jungles and sandy beaches. The Pokémon pictures you take there will be used to build your very own Pokémon Photodex! This brand-new game brings the gameplay of the 1999 Pokémon Snap game for the Nintendo 64 system to life on the Nintendo Switch system with unknown islands to discover and different Pokémon to see!
Photograph lively wild Pokémon in their natural habitats as you research and explore unknown islands. Journey through a variety of environments such as beaches and jungles to capture previously-unseen Pokémon behaviors. The photos you take can also be used to fill out your very own Pokémon Photodex!
No release date has been given for New Pokemon Snap, so if you’ve been waiting over two decades for a new title, you’ll have to wait a little more.
