Finally good news for all gamers who love playing Pokemon! The Pokémon Company announced Wednesday. A new Pokémon Snap game, called New Pokémon Snap, is coming to the Nintendo Switch.
According to the company, New Pokémon Snap will be based on Pokémon Snap, originally released on Nintendo 64 in 1999. For those unfamiliar, the general idea is this: Instead of catching Pokémon, you take pictures of them. It’s a really unique game for The Pokémon Company, radically changing what players thought of as a “Pokémon game.”
The New Pokémon Snap game for the Nintendo Switch system is based on its namesake, which was first released for the Nintendo 64 console in 1999. This game will take Trainers on an adventure to unknown islands overflowing with natural sights such as jungles and beaches, where they can research various Pokémon in their natural habitats. They will take photos to make their very own in-game Pokémon Photodex, all while discovering new, never-before-seen Pokémon expressions and behaviors.
