To great surprise, today a new trailer dedicated to New Pokémon Snap was released, the sequel to the historic title for Nintendo 64 back in 1999 in which, in the role of an experienced photographer, we embarked on a great adventure to try to photograph all the 151 pocket monsters.
After a long wait after its first announcement, which took place during the Pokémon Presents in June 2020, the New Pokémon Snap is arriving exclusively on Nintendo Switch and it has finally received an official release date, set for 30 April.
Check the synopsis of the title below, via its official website:
Get ready for New Pokémon Snap, an all-new adventure for Nintendo Switch inspired by the classic Nintendo 64 game Pokémon Snap. Explore beaches, jungles, deserts, and more as you photograph over 200 Pokémon and investigate the mysterious Illumina phenomenon in New Pokémon Snap. Welcome to the Lental region, whose islands hold everything from dense jungles to vast deserts. Throughout this archipelago, you’ll photograph untouched nature and plenty of wild Pokémon that thrive in Lental’s natural expanses.
This year, among other things, we will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of the first Pokémon game, which debuted exactly on February 27, 1996, in Japan with Pokémon Green and Red, so a year full of announcements and surprises for everyone is expected for lovers of pocket monsters.
It is rumored that by mid-February there will be a full-bodied Pokémon Direct in which, in addition to reminding everyone of the brand’s upcoming birthday, all the plans that Game Freak, Nintendo and The Pokémon Company have in store for this 2021 will be revealed, including the long-awaited announcement of a possible remake of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, which in turn celebrate fifteen years since their first release on the Nintendo DS.
For now, there is nothing official yet, so we just have to cross our fingers and wait for any kind of signal from the Big N, which must absolutely redeem itself from 2020 that is not exactly bright.
