“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,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “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.”
Like the N64 classic, wild Pokemons are all around, they can be captured on camera while patrolling territory, wandering on the field, or even playing with other Pokemons. It’s confirmed that the players will have several ways to interact with wild Pokemons and get different reactions from them.
Players will be able to interact with Pokémon by throwing a Fluffruit, a tasty fruit found across the region, to catch their attention or watch them eat. You can even use this fruit to help draw out Pokémon into a variety of situations to see how they react. These serendipitous opportunities present a special challenge, and catching them with your camera at the perfect moment may gain you higher scores.
The game will have a lot of replay value as the Pokemon’s behavior will change as players take more photos and fulfill research on their journey. Players will have to take many photos and use their highest-scoring shots to fill out their Photodex, a collection of Pokémon photographs.
The untouched depths of the Lental region may sound daunting at first, but don’t worry. Explorers will hop into the NEO-ONE, an auto-driving vehicle, which will steer them across various paths on each island and will help free up time to focus on snapping the perfect shots. Throughout your missions, you may even get to see Pokémon looking and behaving differently than ever before. These special moments are memories to savor, so, luckily, you’ll always have your trusty camera on hand to capture them for Pokémon posterity.
New Pokemon Snap will be available on the Nintendo eShop on April 30 at a suggested retail price of $59.99.
