Video: Pokemon Snap Switch vs N64 graphics comparison

Posted on June 17, 2022 by in Switch, Videos

Pokemon Snap for Nintendo Switch Online was shown off earlier this week, and with it Gamexplain has put together yet another video comparing the visuals of this version to those of the original N64 game. As is to be expected, Pokemon Snap now has a much higher resolution through the Nintendo Switch Online version, and it makes for a very noticeable visual upgrade.

Here’s some more information on Pokemon Snap:

Have you ever wanted to see Pikachu in its natural habitat? In Pokémon Snap, you will capture lots of Pokémon found in the wild – not with a Poké Ball, but with a camera!

Some shots are easy, like snapping Pikachu relaxing on the beach, but others are much more difficult, such as taking the picture of Pikachu riding on the back of a rare, flying Pokémon! In Pokémon Snap, you’re on assignment from Professor Oak, the world-famous Pokémon professor. He needs lots of photos taken on Pokémon Island, where you’ll cross six fascinating environments in search of all the Pokémon you can find.

Pidgey will soar over your shoulder on the Beach. Diglett will pop up in the Tunnel. A group of Charmander will run by in the Volcano. And that’s only in the first three environments! Wait until you see all the lively Pokémon in the River, Cave and Valley. When you return to Professor Oak’s lab, he’ll score your photos based on several merits: Did you capture the Pokémon in a great pose? Does its size fill the photo frame? Is it centred within the shot? And have you snapped more of the same kind of Pokémon in the background?

Taking photos on Pokémon Island is a lot of fun, but it’s a true test of your photography skills, too! You’ve still gotta catch ’em all – this time with a good eye and a quick camera snap!

Take a look at the full comparison video for Pokemon Snap on Switch and N64 below.

Pokemon Snap will make its way to Nintendo Switch Online on June 24, 2022.
