how long does it take to beat new Pokémon snap

The New Pokémon Snap release date has been confirmed by Nintendo. The original, on Nintendo 64, was one of the first games I ever really SUNK time into. I lost many an apple trying to hit Scyther mid-flight. Here’s all we know…

21 Years Later…

The original Pokémon Snap was released in Match of 1999 on the Nintendo 64. It was adorable, and universally loved by Pokémon fans. New Pokémon Snap on the Switch will be released on April 30, 2021, 21 years later. Pokémon Snap can drink! This time, you will travel to the Lental region and work alongside Professor Mirror to study a strange glow among the vegetation and Pokémon, called the Ilumina Phenomenon, while completing your Photodex.

The crystal clear blue waters look so inviting, I just want to dive in and take actual pictures myself.

One can assume that New Pokémon Snap will utilize the motion controls of the Joycons or Pro Controllers to move the camera in order to take pictures, which sucks for me because I have NO coordination when it comes to motion controls. I have to turn them off when I’m playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Everything we know about New Pokémon Snap makes me excited. I LOVED the original Pokémon Snap and spent hours trying to get every picture I could, find every secret, and get the highest score. Now add modern, crisp Nintendo polish graphics and you have one very anticipated gam.

New Pokemon Snap will cost the usual $59.99 USD and offer 300 coins upon purchase.
