Watch the new trailer for New Pokémon Snap here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gKZ5-8LRKg

Three stunning new areas will be available to explore:

  • Secret Side Path (Day/Night) – The NEO-ONE shrinks to a tiny size when you explore this area, so the Pokémon you see will look gigantic! You can even hear their breathing and footsteps in this thrilling area, and you might spot new kinds of behavior from Pokémon you’ve seen before.
  • Mightywide River (Day/Night) – Mightywide River is a nurturing water source that provides the whole of Belusylva Island with sustenance. You’ll be conducting research as you ride down the river, so be on the lookout for rapids as you search for Pokémon, and keep your camera ready so you don’t miss capturing them in action.
  • Barren Badlands (Day/Night) - In this area, you’ll research the badlands of Voluca Island, where dry winds from the desert blow.​ This area has many peculiar features, from geysers to poisonous, gas-spewing swamps. Pokémon may be hiding underground or in the rocky cliffs, so keep your eyes peeled for them while you’re on your expedition.

Across the three new areas, players will find a variety of Pokémon, including those already familiar from players’ journey across the Lental region as well as 20 more Pokémon that couldn’t be found before.

Calling all Pokémon Trainers and photographers alike! The launch of the New Pokémon Snap game for the Nintendo Switch system is just around the corner on April 30, and players will be able to get an early look at what’s to come with a new interactive site.

The Explore the Lental Region site* launches today and offers details about the Lental region and its wild Pokémon. Trainers and curious players can click through eight spots on the site’s map to learn about different Pokémon interactions and habitats in the game. They can also earn My Nintendo Platinum Points** along their journey, which can be redeemed for various rewards, including upcoming New Pokémon Snap items.

Each of the eight locations also offers a special digital photo frame available only on the site, inspired by different parts of the Lental region. Trainers will be able to decorate their selfies with these colorful frames and share directly to their social channels. The Lental region tour doesn’t need to be completed in a single session, so feel free to visit the Explore the Lental Region site multiple times.

New Pokémon Snap features islands teeming with untouched nature – from dense jungles to vast deserts, all home to different wild Pokémon. Players will take on the role of a budding Pokémon photographer and work with the Lental region expert, Professor Mirror, and his assistant, Rita, on an ecological survey to photograph Pokémon thriving in their natural habitats. Along the way, players can capture Pokémon behaviors that aren’t normally seen! Professor Mirror will evaluate their photography prowess as they investigate the mysterious Illumina phenomenon and build their very own Pokémon Photodex.

New Pokémon Snap launches in stores, in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch and on Nintendo.com on April 30 at a suggested retail price of $59.99. For those who want to begin snapping Pokémon photos as soon as the game launches, pre-orders are available now.
