The Pokemon Company has just announced the return of Pokemon Snap. It’s been more than a decade since the first Pokemon Snap was released and it seems that Pokemon fans are about to get a chance to take a photo of their favorite Pokemon very soon.

In an announcement earlier today, The Pokemon Company has revealed that there will be a new Pokemon Snap coming to Nintendo Switch. Players will be able to take on an adventure to several islands to take a photo of Pokemon doing their thing. The details about the new Pokemon Snap is still slim but it has been confirmed that players will be able to ride a special vehicle to explore the island.

The first Pokemon Snap was released in 1999 for Nintendo 64 and this is the first time were Pokemon fans got a chance to take a closer look to the Pokemon’s habitat. In the previous game, trainers are allowed to interact with Pokemon such as feeding them. The main highlight of the Pokemon Snap is allowing fans to take a photo of Pokemon and at the same time, explore the island where the Pokemon are living.
