It's been more than TWENTY YEARS years since I spent countless hours photographing pokémon in the 1999 Nintendo 64 game Pokémon Snap. Since the original game released, the pokémon world has grown by hundreds of new pokémon. We've all wondered if another photography-based game would come out and today The Pokémon Company delivered.
From the June 17, 2020 press release:
"New Pokémon Snap game for Nintendo Switch is based on its namesake, which was first released for the Nintendo 64 console in 1999. This completely new 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 behaviours."
I'm beyond thrilled for the announcement of this game. Please take a few minutes to watch the trailer video above and check out some images below. Release date is still to be announced. This game will be available on the Nintendo Switch.
