Pokémon Snap back from the 90s! (Spoilers Ahead!)
Welcome avid photographers and Pokémon fans, we have something fun and refreshing!
New Pokémon Snap!
Come take an adventure across the Lental Region and explore the surprises of Pokémon big and small!
As a child from the 90s, when the N64 was the big new game console with it’s weird and wacky controller, I was full tilt hyped for New Pokémon Snap. This game was boasting some of the best graphics to come to the Pokémon franchise yet, as well as new stories. With the original Pokémon Snap, in it’s time, was not only one of the best graphic games out at that time, it was also exciting for the generation growing up beside Pokémon. We all thought the graphics were absolutely amazing as well as the Pokémon in it!
The New Pokémon Snap game did not disappoint as the game started up with the soft tease of music. The lull’s of Pokémon chatter mixing in with the environment. With the Nintendo Switch docked, receiving visuals in 1080p, the game was bright and colorful. The beautiful aspects of Pokémon are the colors and the vibrancy of those colors, so if your in docked mode or in handheld mode, the colors are fantastic.
Nostalgia comes into play with New Pokémon Snap, very heavily. As the music chimes up and the story progresses, you are reminded of the days when Pokémon Snap was new and fresh to everyone. Discovering where Pokémon ran and hid, or would play surprises on your character (Todd at the time). Reporting back to Professor Oak and showing him the discoveries in 64 bit that you had made, impressing or not.
As the game proceeded and you are introduced to the Pokémon Professor Mirror, the memories of Professor Oak washing in. Experience all the excitement that Todd Snap had when he first met the new world of Pokémon.

All in all, New Pokémon Snap is an amazing game, as always from the creators of Pokémon. This was a nostalgic game to play, and had some of the most beautiful legendary surprises. Besides that, New Pokémon Snap teaches us that all Pokémon are special, and not just the Legendaries and Mythical types.
I had such an amazing time playing this game on and off stream, I highly recommend to anyone who loves to look at cute things! This game is full of all the cuteness!
