During today’s Pokémon Presentation, The Pokémon Company announced New Pokémon Snap for the Nintendo Switch. Fans have been asking for a sequel since the original Pokémon Snap on the Nintendo 64 back in 1999.
We don’t know much about the new version just yet, but we do know that it’s being developed by Bandai Namco.
Here’s the basic premise, courtesy of Nintendo:
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!
