New Pokemon Snap

New Pokemon Snap isn’t Bandai Namco’s first crack at the Pokemon series. The company was also responsible for Pokken Tournament for Wii U and arcades – as well as the Switch port that released later on.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, it was Pokken Tournament that ultimately led Bandai Namco being able to work on New Pokemon Snap. Director Haruki Suzaki mentioned that to IGN and also confirmed that the team was able to speak with some of the original Pokemon Snap developers while tackling the Switch project.

Suzaki said:

A series of new screenshots have come in for New Pokemon Snap ahead of the game’s release later this month. We’ve rounded up the full set below.

Nintendo has prepared a new English overview trailer for New Pokemon Snap. Take a look at the video below.

New Pokemon Snap releases for Switch worldwide on April 30.

As a way of celebrating the upcoming launch of New Pokemon Snap, a special event will be held in Pokemon GO. Players will have an opportunity to more frequently encounter Pokemon from the Lental region in the wild and in raids. That’s on top of a new avatar item, sticker, and the debut of Shiny Smeargle.

Below are the full event details:

The original Pokemon Snap had just 63 creatures to catch. For the series’ first new entry in more than twenty years, that number has increased substantially. New Pokemon Snap on Switch will feature over 200 Pokemon.

It’s worth noting that when the N64 title originally debuted, there weren’t nearly as many Pokemon back then. There have been several generations over the years and we’re not very far away from 1,000 designs in total. So how did the New Pokemon Snap team go about choosing Pokemon for the new title?

Nintendo has uploaded a pair of North American commercials for New Pokemon Snap ahead of its release later this month. View it below.
