Nintendo has announced that New Nintendo Pokemon Snap will be released on Nintendo Switch on April 30, 2021.


New Pokemon Snap will take place in the Lental region and will take players on an Pokemon-filled adventure through jungles, deserts, and more. When they eventually encounter a strange creature in an underwater cave, the players are treated to the Pokemon Naming Song which, in addition to naming and giving better start-up shots for a wild Pokémon they encounter will also resemble the vocabulary of the original Pikachu Who Lived in the past. Players will also be able to watch pokémon being caught and when the event is over they'll exhibit other cute Pokémon glitch battles on their smartphone which are - let's just say - very, very familiar.

A gameplay demo for New Nintendo Pokemon Snap has also been released on Nintendo eShop. Some additional information can be read from below Nintendo's announcement page any how.

The release date of New Nintendo Pokemon Snap has been originally stated to be April 30th, 2023. Only a release date has been confirmed to be available now.

New Nintendo Pokemon Snap features made of the same in-wonderful music as an 'old' Pikachu Who Lived, Full Motion Video bursting with liveliness, a Gallery with things scurrying about, playable 'new battles' with Pokémon everywhere, Replay Effect with Trainers, an AI system that learns more about wild pokémon in the wild, and many more surprises. Most importantly... players can start an adventure that literally begins, at the beginning of time itself. Mega Evolution!

Announcing is the highly anticipated 'New Pokémon Snap', an innovative mobile game bringing together the pokémon of the past and the legendary charm of Mega Evolution. Using the New Nintendo 3DS, players can capture and hunt quirky pokémon, battle champion Trainers, and achieve Team Snowbelle's Grand Crown. A presentation trailer released prior to Nintendo LIVE shows a loud complex of moving pokémon with kinds of speech which can be captured. Catching, hatching and evolving will allow players to bring these pokémon to life and battle against famous opponents like the legendary Pikachu Who Lived. The play and the presentation are being made as we speak!

This is driving the new game title. So I will not talk about it. And it is not another game like Nintendo eShop games attach themselves to as this a Nintendo Direct for all eShop (and all) since Nintendo Live 2015 as characters and interesting story are abilities of this Pokémon Snap.
