It’s hard to put into words exactly what I’m feeling right now with Nintendo announcing a new Pokemon Snap for the Switch based off of the beloved Nintendo 64 game. This comes seemingly out of nowhere like the soon-to-be-released Paper Mario: The Origami King. It still remains to be seen if this Paper Mario is exactly what fans have been asking for for years, but I feel even more confident it will be now that we’re finally getting a new Pokemon Snap. I mean, it’s all I ever wanted, and they must be listening!
It’s Real and It’s Happening
You can check out the official website of The Pokemon Company here if you’re still not sure whether you’re dreaming or not. If that’s not convincing enough, you can see the listing of the new Pokemon Snap on Nintendo’s website here, with all the details and trailer from it below!
You’ll find that the trailer includes Pokemon doing adorable things like eating apples and hanging out with each other like that scene with Squirtle and Lapras. Nintendo even kept the fact that you’re confined to a little cart vehicle thing on tracks, which is great because it adds to the challenge. We can also finally take photos of even more Pokemon as new generations besides the first one have been added!
