History

New Pokémon Snap was announced by Nintendo on June 17th, 2020. The first trailer for the game suggested that, like the original, New Pokémon Snap would be a rail-shooter, having the player move on a track through a level to take pictures of Pokémon, using items to trigger events and make certain Pokémon appear.

After the announcement, there was little news on New Pokémon Snap until January 14th, 2021, when Nintendo debuted a release date trailer, revealing the game would take place in the Lental region and be released on April 30th, 2021.
