The newest installment in the Pokemon Snap franchise, titled New Pokemon Snap, is set to hit the Nintendo Switch on April 30. The game is essentially a carbon copy of the 1999 original; players travel through a preset path and snap photos of Pokemon that pop up. The title is available for preorder now.

A new generation of Pokemon photographers can take the perfect Pokemon pic in New Pokemon Snap for the Nintendo Switch on April 30. 

The game, which is a follow-up to the Nintendo 64’s 1999 cult hit Pokemon Snap, puts players on a fantastical island and tasks them with snapping pristine pictures of Pokemon playing, pausing, and perusing particular places in paradise.

Gameplay is essentially a carbon copy of the first Pokemon Snap game; players travel along a predetermined path and photograph Pokemon that pop up in the environment. Professor Mirror, the game’s resident Pokemon expert, will then rate the player’s performance based on the quality of the pictures.

Professor Mirror has two assistants, Rita and Paul. Paul takes on the role of your rival and will compete to snap the best pic, while Rita is more of a support character for the player. 

Like the 1999 original, New Pokemon Snap is an interesting and cute Pokemon-themed take on the on-rail shooter genre. It’s somewhat unique in this console generation, as the on-rails genre has largely faded from popularity. Considering the continued popularity of the original Pokemon Snap, New Pokemon Snap should do fairly well when it is released on April 30. 

Nintendo has released two new trailers this week showing off gameplay. You can check those out below.
