- There’s a new Pokémon Snap game coming to the Nintendo Switch.
- Nintendo didn’t reveal much information about the game.
- No release date was announced at this time.
Nintendo and The Pokémon Company are bringing back Pokémon Snap from the days of the Nintendo 64. This time, New Pokémon Snap is coming to the Switch. Fans of the classic franchise will get to take gorgeous pictures of the beloved creatures from the Pokémon universe.
Unfortunately, Nintendo didn’t reveal too much information about the next game in the Pokémon Snap franchise on its website, other than giving us a few details of the gameplay and graphical style. That’s a very Nintendo way to name the game, but at least it makes it clear exactly what the game is.
Bandai Namco Studios is developing the game, while Nintendo and The Pokémon Company are publishing it.
Nintendo described some of the environments players will explore in New Pokémon Snap. The game promises to deliver jungles and beaches where players can take photos of their favorite Pokémon to build a Photodex. The company promises the 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.”
For hardcore fans, the game will show Pokémon doing “previously unseen Pokémon behaviors,” which could change the way players perceive some of their favorite creatures from the Pokémon universe.
Sadly, Nintendo didn’t announce when New Pokémon Snap would be available, only saying that it’s coming to Nintendo Switch.
