After 20 Years of Begging, Nintendo Finally Announced 'New Pokémon Snap'

After 20 years of begging from fans, a sequel to 1999's Pokémon Snap is coming to the Switch.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

GotY whatever year this comes out.


Seeing that year in the excerpt gave me a bit of a whoa moment — for some reason I thought Pokémon Snap was a little more recent. Or at least that I was older than four when it came out.

Honestly not that into regular Pokemon but I’ll definitely play a new Pokemon Snap.

Famously in my household, I asked my parents to exchange the N64 bundle we were about to get from Costco from the one with Ocarina of Time packed in to the one with Pokemon Snap packed in.


I’m so excited for this. A lot of the joy of Pokemon Snap for me is seeing Pokemon run around in their natural environment and the challenge of taking a great photo. I deeply look forward into printing out my best photos and building a scrapbook around it.


Both legendary, don’t see the wrong in that! :wink:
