In a world full of video game remakes dropping left and right, Pokémon fans have been patiently waiting. The first big step was finally bringing Pokémon to the Nintendo Switch with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu/Eevee! and then eventually Pokémon Sword/Shield.
Finally having the ability to set off on your own Pokémon role-playing trainer adventure via the Nintendo Switch was something many fans were looking forward to, eager to move on from their Nintendo 3DS system and its predecessors.
Now, our time has come once again. The Pokémon Company came bearing long-awaited news for fans this morning during the Pokémon Presents livestream … an all new Pokémon Snap game is coming to the Nintendo Switch!
The original Pokémon Snap for the Nintendo 64 was first released in Japan in 1999, and has remained a beloved, favorite game of Pokémon fans for decades.
Now, instead of having to dig out your N64 system and blow the dust out of your old game cartridge, you will soon be able to play a brand new version of the game right from your Nintendo Switch.
In the trailer, it appears that players will embark on their travels in a hovering buggy that travels on an illuminated track, which is reminiscent of the Zero-One vehicle from the original game. Players will explore various landscapes, such as deserts, jungles, and more.
In addition to absolutely beautiful graphics, the game looks to feature a large variety of Pokémon, both new and old (and yes, there will be apples.) Also, players will have the ability to discover never-before-seen Pokémon expressions and behaviors.
The official name of the remake is New Pokémon Snap. The game is currently still in development, and no details about the timeline of its release have been revealed yet.
Stay tuned for more information!
