Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing said in a statement, “New Pokémon Snap presents a fun twist on a Pokémon adventure, with enchanting gameplay that lets players see some of their favorite Pokémon in a different light…This new game is a fun addition to the strong lineup of Pokémon titles available on Nintendo Switch, and we can’t wait to see everyone’s pictures when New Pokémon Snap launches on April 30.”
The original Pokémon Snap released in 1999 to strong fan reception. Players controlled Bill, a Pokémon photographer from the animé series, as he photographed Pokémon in various areas like a jungle and volcano. In New Pokémon Snap, Trainers will explore the Lental Region to photograph Pokémon wildlife in their natural habitats. Professor Mirror will guide players on their photographic journey and will show how to take the perfect picture. While sometimes trainers need to give props, the Pokémon do not always need them. Pokémon will interact with other species, normally playing or fighting over territory with them.
While we still need to wait three months, the hardest part of the wait is over. To watch the trailer, click on the video below.
