Product Description

Explore lush scenery on unknown islands to snap photos of Pokemon in their natural habitats

Seek out and take in-game photographs of Pokemon in their native environments in the New Pokemon Snap game, only for the Nintendo Switch™ system! Snap photos from the NEO-ONE as you encounter and research lively wild Pokemon. You might see unexpected expressions or behaviors of Pokemon patrolling their territory, playing, or lurking in out-of-the-way spots.

Investigate the mysterious Illumina phenomenon
Travel to the islands that make up the Lental region. In this region, some of the Pokémon and vegetation will appear to have a special glow. Research these Pokémon alongside Professor Mirror as you explore dense jungles, vast deserts, and more! Your observations of Pokémon thriving in the wild may help unravel the truth behind the Illumina phenomenon. The Pokémon pictures you take will be used to build your very own Pokémon Photodex!

Save, edit, and share your favorite Pokémon photos

Save photos to your personal in-game album to edit and adjust them. When you complete a course, you can adjust the brightness, blur, zoom and other aspects of your photo in Re-Snap mode. Then, add stickers, frames, and filters to add a personal touch. Share your favorite photos with family and friends in-game*. You can also see what kinds of photos everyone else is taking. See something you like? Award a Sweet! medal.

This new game brings the gameplay of the 1999 Pokémon Snap game for the Nintendo 64™ system to life on the Nintendo Switch system with unknown islands to discover and different Pokémon to see!

Photograph lively wild Pokémon in their natural habitats as you research and explore unknown islands. Hop in your trusty travel pod, the NEO-ONE, and journey through a variety of environments such as beaches, jungles, and deserts to capture previously-unseen Pokémon behaviors. You can even play a melody or toss Pokémon a delicious fluffruit to catch their attention. Photos you take can also be used to fill out your very own Pokémon Photodex!

Your photos are scored based on the Pokémon’s poses, how large they appear, how directly they’re facing you, and other factors. You may even snap a four star-worthy photo if you catch rare Pokémon behaviors. These scores can be shared via in-game rankings* so you can compare your shots with other Pokémon photographers around the world.

In the Lental region, Pokémon and vegetation have sometimes been seen to glow. Meet Professor Mirror and work with him to uncover the mystery of the Illumina phenomenon. Your photos and observations may be key to learning about this strange occurrence.

Ask a Question

Q: How do stores know it’s going to be released 12/31 if Nintendo doesn’t even know ? 

Apom94 7 months ago
Best Answer :

12/31/2021 means they don't know when it's coming out, but are pretty sure it will be out some time next year. In general, if a game is listed as being released on the last day of the month, odds are they don't have an actual release date, and that the month is an estimate. I know this from my many years as a roommate of a GameStop clerk. :)

Q: If i have 3 switches can i buy only one game and they play at the same time? Or will i have to buy 3 games totals?

fablo 2 months ago
Best Answer :

We have 3 Switches at my house as well. Unfortunately you would need 3 copies of Snap if you want all 3 systems to be played simultaneously. This is fairly standard for the majority of games. Unless the box expressly says it can be played on multiple systems with one cart it's safe to assume that you'd need multiple copies. I hope this helps.

Q: Is this for adults? I love Animal Crossing, Luigi’s Mansion, Mario Odyssey type games. I’m a 50+ female. I like fun and also with some challenges. Is this game too simple?

Emie46 2 months ago
Best Answer :

If you enjoy photography and Pokemon, then this game is a great mash-up to try out. The game is rated for everyone and Nintendo has a knack at making games that the whole family would enjoy. I would recommend checking some reviews or watching someone stream the game online before making the call. Hope this helps!

A fun game to play for gamers of all ages. Easy to pick up and tons of things to discover. I got bored with it after awhile but not due to any issues with the game.

I bought this for a buddy of mine’s birthday. I was pleased with the ease of the one day pickup; super easy and convenient for me on my way home for work. The next week I saw him at work and asked how it was, he was enthusiastically pumped and said it was a blast. 10/10 would do it again.

I really like the game, but the story ended sooner than expected and overall there was less game than it seemed. Still good, but that was disappointing.

Pokemon is my favorite franchise, and I love all Pokémon games, but this game just doesn’t hold my interest. I like to catch/train pokemon, which this game lacks. You can’t even have a partner pokemon. Played 2 levels and was over it. Still good graphics and light hearted fun for non-serious gamers.

Everything we wanted. Lots of interactivity, almost too much. Can get mildly frustrating at times, but the main story is smooth and easy. You'll need a guide for the request pictures for sure.

This game is both relaxing and exciting, you get to go at your own pace. Either just by looking around and snapping pictures of cute pokemon, or by quickly flipping around to get the perfect shots of some hard to find pokemon. Play music to make pokemon dance, or watch two fight it out like in true wildlife. I've never played a game that made pokemon feel so real.
