After a long wait, fans finally have new information about the latest Pokemon Snap game, including the New Pokemon Snap release date.
In a new trailer, they confirmed the game would be coming out April 30th, 2021. They also gave us a first look at the gameplay of the Pokemon-themed rail shooter, which features all the new Pokemon released in the decades since the original Pokemon Snap’s debut.
From a gameplay perspective, it looks like the game will be sticking to the tried and true mechanics of Pokemon Snap. It’s essentially a rail shooter, where you take photos of Pokemon enjoying their natural habitat. You can throw fruits to draw their attention, getting special interactions that will make your photos more valuable.
It looks like there will be special variants of Pokemon too, as the trailer closes off with a larger-than-average Meganium. It doesn’t have Sword And Shield’s Gigantamax effects around it and it’s not massively large, but it’s a lot bigger than the Pokemon’s regular height.
The Pokemon Company haven’t explained in greater detail if there would be any new mechanics coming to the game, or if they’d bring back the sticker printer that was so fondly remembered by fans of the original. However, now that we know the New Pokemon Snap release date, its only a matter of time until more details emerge one way or another.
