Rejoice friends—we now finally know when New Pokémon Snap is launching on Nintendo Switch. Prepare to hop aboard the NEO-ONE beginning on April 30. You can get the latest look at the game in the trailer below:

New Pokémon Snap has been percolating for a while now, and many a fan is hoping for more of the unique, quirky gameplay of the original Nintendo 64 Pokémon Snap. Players will be hopping into the NEO-ONE vehicle to take snapshots of the various Pocket Monsters who find the Lental region home. Here’s a bit more from The Pokémon Company’s press release:

Some Pokémon and vegetation players discover may even emit a special glow. These strange occurrences are found only in the Lental region and are known as the Illumina phenomenon. Jump into the trusty NEO-ONE, and uncover the secrets of this mystery!

Professor Mirror will be on hand to evaluate and score players’ photos. Photos of Pokémon are evaluated based on the subjects’ poses, how large they appear, how directly they’re facing you, and where they fall in frame. As players take more photos and go on research expeditions, they may see Pokémon behaving in entirely new ways. Players will have to take many photos and use their highest-scoring shots to fill out their Pokémon Photodex.

Pre-orders for New Pokémon Snap are open right now both digitally and from retailers. Are you excited to get another crack at Pokémon photography? Tell us in the comments and on social media!
