The latest trailer for New Pokémon Snap brings players face-to-face to a whole variety of Pokémon as they explore the Lental Region islands.
Over 20 years since the last Pokémon Snap — a photographic safari that has players take pictures of their favorite Pokémon in the wild — a new installment is coming to the Nintendo Switch this April.
The Pokemon Company has unveiled a new trailer for New Pokémon Snap, with players exploring the different islands in the Lental Region. Encountering multiple generations of Pokémon playing with each other or battling amongst themselves in their natural habitats, the trailer teases an immersive adventure with their favorites. Nintendo has also provided a closer look at some of the Pokémon players will encounter in the Lental Region, all ready for their photographic close-up.
Wild Pokémon thrive on the Lental islands, and there’s no shortage of unique Pokémon and Pokémon behaviors to document. Keep your eyes peeled, because some Pokémon may be hiding while others may only swoop by for an instant! pic.twitter.com/rItWxS7WKY

The title comes as part of the Pokémon franchise’s 25th-anniversary celebration, after first launching in February 1996. New Pokémon Snap was officially announced by The Pokémon Company this past June as a sequel to 1999’s Pokémon Snap on the Nintendo 64. The original game had Professor Oak task players with cataloging Pokémon in the wild for his Pokédex as part of his continuing studies.
In addition to the upcoming Switch game, The Pokémon Company has announced a whole wave of merchandising, promotional campaigns and special events to commemorate the franchise reaching its milestone anniversary. This includes partnerships with pop star Katy Perry and the McDonald’s fast food chain as the franchise celebrates the momentous occasion in style.
Developed by Bandai Namco and published by Nintendo, New Pokémon Snap will be released on April 30 for the Nintendo Switch.
