Get ready to visit the many beautiful isles of the Lental region in the New Pok?mon Snap game for the Nintendo Switch family of systems. Filled with diverse ecosystems, from dense jungles to vast deserts, the archipelago of the region is an untouched natural marvel, packed to the brim with Pok?mon just waiting to be discovered!

In New Pok?mon Snap, players will take on the role of a budding Pok?mon photographer and work with the Lental region expert, Professor Mirror, and his assistant, Rita, on an ecological survey to photograph Pok?mon thriving in nature. In a new trailer released today, additional footage and details were unveiled for New Pok?mon Snap, including its April 30 launch date. The trailer can be viewed by visiting

?New Pok?mon Snap presents a fun twist on a Pok?mon adventure, with enchanting gameplay that lets players see some of their favorite Pok?mon in a different light,? said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America?s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. ?This new game is a fun addition to the strong lineup of Pok?mon titles available on Nintendo Switch, and we can?t wait to see everyone?s pictures when New Pok?mon Snap launches on April 30.?

Wild Pok?mon are all around and have adapted to thrive in all the various natural expanses of the Lental region. They may be seen living in groups patrolling their territory, wandering serenely on their own or even playing with other Pok?mon species. With a careful eye and a photographer?s keen sense of adventure, you?ll be able to spot Pok?mon lurking in all sorts of places, including secluded hideaways ? and sometimes swooping down suddenly from the sky! Players will be able to interact with Pok?mon by throwing a Fluffruit, a tasty fruit found across the region, to catch their attention or watch them eat. You can even use this fruit to help draw out Pok?mon into a variety of situations to see how they react. These serendipitous opportunities present a special challenge, and catching them with your camera at the perfect moment may gain you higher scores.

Professor Mirror will evaluate and score players? photos taken on their adventures. Pok?mon photography is evaluated based on the subjects? poses, how large they appear, how directly they?re facing the camera and where they fall in frame. As players take more photos and fulfill research on their journey, they may see Pok?mon look and behave in entirely new ways. Players will have to take many photos and use their highest-scoring shots to fill out their Photodex, a collection of Pok?mon photographs.

The untouched depths of the Lental region may sound daunting at first, but don?t worry. Explorers will hop into the NEO-ONE, an auto-driving vehicle, which will steer them across various paths on each island and will help free up time to focus on snapping the perfect shots. Throughout your missions, you may even get to see Pok?mon looking and behaving differently than ever before. These special moments are memories to savor, so, luckily, you?ll always have your trusty camera on hand to capture them for Pok?mon posterity.

Some Pok?mon and vegetation that players may discover will appear to have a special glow. These strange occurrences are found only in the Lental region and are known as the Illumina Phenomenon. Jump into the trusty NEO-ONE and uncover the mystery behind the Illumina Phenomenon!
