Pokemon Snap is being revived on the Nintendo Switch

June 17, 2020 | By Chris Kerr

The much-loved Pokemon Snap franchise is making a comeback after collecting dust for over 20 years. 

The Pokemon Company has announced a new entry in the seemingly one-and-done franchise, which debuted on the Nintendo 64 back in 1999, called New Pokemon Snap. 

Pitched as "an all-new adventure for Nintendo Switch inspired by the classic Nintendo 64 game," the long awaited revival will let players channel their inner Art Wolfe and catalog a trove of wild pocket monsters as they frolic, snooze, and scrap in their natural habitat. 

The debut trailer (which starts at the 5:20 mark in the embedded video) shows a game that's strikingly faithful to the original, and features the player character exploring a variety of diverse environments in a new safari vehicle while taking candid shots of their favorite 'mons. 

Although more details are thin on the ground at this point, a quick glimpse at the official website reveals the title is being developed by Bandai Namco. Here's hoping they deliver the goods.
