A new Pokémon Snap? Read on for more details!

Pokémon just keeps finding ways to keeps fan’s wallets open. This franchise has brought in over $90 billion in revenue with video games, trading cards, merchandise, apps, and more. As the platforms of entertainment change the Pokémon franchise has adapted to keep Pikachu and the rest of the ever-growing Pocket Monsters relevant.

Today during the Pokémon Company’s Pokémon Presents broadcast, they revealed a new Pokémon Snap for the Nintendo Switch. The new game will be simply titled New Pokémon Snap. There was a brief trailer for the game that was released that showed some of the various Pokémon that we will need to search out for the perfect photo. Some of them included Lapras, Squirtle, Pikachu, and others.


According to the official website, in New Pokémon Snap, we are going to be able to travel to deserts, jungles, and other lands to find out favorite Pokémon. It also mentions that we will be able to encounter never-before-seen expressions and behaviors. You can check out the trailer below! The game will be developed by Bandai Namco Studios.

Here is the official synopsis for the 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.


The original Pokémon Snap was released 21 years ago in 1999 exclusively on Nintendo 64. I almost enjoyed this game as much as the original Game Boy games. Just because it was a different way to “capture” them. With it being on the Switch now it’s going to be fun to be able to share your captured Pokémon via social media with your friends. It will be interesting to see all the new features that this game has. But in the end, it’s going to be as simple as taking a picture.

Currently New Pokémon Snap does not have a release date. Will you be picking this up and capturing your favorite Pokémon? Let us know in the comment section below!
