New Pokémon Snap (Switch; Bandai Namco; 4/30/21)

https://www.polygon.com/2020/6/17/21...ompany-details


The New Pokémon Snap game for the Nintendo Switch system is based on its namesake, which was first released for the Nintendo 64 console in 1999. This game will take Trainers on an adventure to unknown islands overflowing with natural sights such as jungles and beaches, where they can research various Pokémon in their natural habitats. They will take photos to make their very own in-game Pokémon Photodex, all while discovering new, never-before-seen Pokémon expressions and behaviors.
We had so much fun with this game and have been waiting for a remake for years. Finally!

No release date, but it looks great.

We still have (and play) the original game so all of kids love it and welcome a new one.

Re: New Pokémon Snap (Switch; Bandai Namco) - Coming soon (?)

Beat me to it. I still regard the first as one of the best N64 games ever. To say I'm excited would be quite the understatement.

Me and my kids loved this game. When it became available on the Wii virtual console years later, my younger daughter played through the game again.

I played this game to death back on the N64. I'm glad to see it's return. I tell you what, the Switch is going to go down as one of the best Nintendo consoles ever.

So... I'm one that has never played a Pokemon game in any iteration. Would this be one I could jump into?

Anyone can definitely jump into it but I would think most of the fun would be having a knowledge of the Pokemon universe. The regular Pokemon games are easy to jump into. Sword/Shield on the Switch is a great starter Pokemon rpg.

For sure. The main Pokemon games are RPGs. This is a unique game where you go around take photos during "safaris". One disadvantage you would have going in is not know which Pokemon evolve and how. But that's easy enough to get around with the internet.

I've played probably 5 hours or so and it's great. So much more to do and unlock then the original. Day and night cycles, multiple paths through areas.

I got it for my wife, and she’s completely addicted. There are many challenges to complete, and it’s very interactive beyond just aiming/snapping photos. I thought it might be too rigid to have any staying power, but that’s not the case at all.

My wife is addicted too. From what I’ve observed, it’s pretty cool. Lots to unlock. I’ll start playing when the term ends and my summer begins.
