Description

Explore lush scenery on unknown islands to snap photos of Pokémon in their natural habitats

Seek out and take in-game photographs of Pokémon in their native environments in the New Pokémon Snap™ game, only for the Nintendo Switch™ system! Snap photos from the NEO-ONE as you encounter and research lively wild Pokémon. You might see unexpected expressions or behaviors—Pokémon patrolling their territory, playing, or lurking in out-of-the-way spots.

Investigate the mysterious Illumina phenomenon

Travel to the islands that make up the Lental region. In this region, some of the Pokémon and vegetation will appear to have a special glow. Research these Pokémon alongside Professor Mirror as you explore dense jungles, vast deserts, and more! Your observations of Pokémon thriving in the wild may help unravel the truth behind the Illumina phenomenon. The Pokémon pictures you take will be used to build your very own Pokémon Photodex!

Save, edit, and share your favorite Pokémon photos

Save photos to your personal in-game album to edit and adjust them. When you complete a course, you can adjust the brightness, blur, zoom and other aspects of your photo in Re-Snap mode. Then, add stickers, frames, and filters to add a personal touch. Share your favorite photos with family and friends in-game*. You can also see what kinds of photos everyone else is taking. See something you like? Award a Sweet! medal.

This new game brings the gameplay of the 1999 Pokémon Snap game for the Nintendo 64™ system to life on the Nintendo Switch system with unknown islands to discover and different Pokémon to see!

Photograph lively wild Pokémon in their natural habitats as you research and explore unknown islands. Hop in your trusty travel pod, the NEO-ONE, and journey through a variety of environments such as beaches, jungles, and deserts to capture previously-unseen Pokémon behaviors. You can even play a melody or toss Pokémon a delicious fluffruit to catch their attention. Photos you take can also be used to fill out your very own Pokémon Photodex!

Your photos are scored based on the Pokémon’s poses, how large they appear, how directly they’re facing you, and other factors. You may even snap a four star-worthy photo if you catch rare Pokémon behaviors. These scores can be shared via in-game rankings* so you can compare your shots with other Pokémon photographers around the world.

In the Lental region, Pokémon and vegetation have sometimes been seen to glow. Meet Professor Mirror and work with him to uncover the mystery of the Illumina phenomenon. Your photos and observations may be key to learning about this strange occurrence.

My 7 year old asked for this game for his bday as he loves Pokémon. I don’t know if it’s the premise or his age, but he lost interest quickly. It was a pricey game for him to not play often.

This was definitely fun for my two littles. It brought me back to my childhood, with just enough new touches to modernize it. It’s not a very long game but definitely helps pass the time.

We thought this would be a good/East game for my 5 year old, but it has so much reading & he can’t read. He also said it was very boring.

I bought this game as a birthday present, and when the birthday boy opened it and played it - we all had a great time watching him snap photos in the beautifully rendering landscape. It’s an odd take on the pokémon games, but surprisingly fun and relaxing to play and watch!

A must have for anyone who loves the N64 version back in the day. Beautiful graphics and enough side challenges to keeps the repetitive gameplay interesting.

Fun game! Easy, mindless concept. Played it 20 years ago on the 64. It’s even better now, of course. Good graphics and love the Pokémon. I need to buy another copy so I don’t have to share with my son!

So addicting and so fun!! It's become one of my favorite Switch games. Challenging enough, but also keeps a progressive story line that is achievable to keep your interest.

I’ve never played the older version so this was new to me, but it’s soo much fun and addicting. You wouldn’t think since all you really do is take pictures but there’s actually a lot to do and work towards. Keep taking pictures to get better ratings and complete requests. Will definitely be playing this for awhile.

Such a fun throwback to the original Pokémon snap. While the game play is navigated on rails, I enjoy the story, online feature and various quests to motivate and help you learn how to be creative with your best shots! Loving the preorder bonus too to print my shots out! :)
