New Pokémon Snap Gameplay Details Revealed (VIDEO)

New Pokémon Snap

Today’s big Pokémon showcase held quite a few notable announcements, with most of the proceedings recounting an all-new set of games aiming to release over the next year or so. However, in addition to an awaited Diamond and Pearl remake and an action-RPG spin on the series, new details were also offered for New Pokémon Snap, revealing several new pieces of gameplay ahead of the reboot’s approaching release this April.

Though we’ve seen flashes of the game’s immensely beautiful presentation in the past, the new Poké-event has now unveiled a nice look at what to expect when first embarking on a photography safari. Similar to the original N64 title, players are tasked with taking spectacular pictures of Pokémon across varied environments around the Lental region. To get that perfect shot, players can utilize a number of methods such as playing a song, throwing a piece of fruit, or activating an Illumina orb, which makes certain critters glow in the dark.

In addition to showing off items, the footage also greeted players with the New Pokémon Snap photo mode. Snapshots can be saved as part of the game’s Photodex research or as part of a personal album, with photo editing as well as a variety of filters, stickers, and frames available for added customization. Taking things further, users will be able to take the fun online to share their best photos and compare them with others as part of a worldwide raking system. With a release date happening soon, it might be time to start pre-preparing one’s shots accordingly.

New Pokémon Snap releases for Nintendo Switch on April 30th.
