There was quite a bit of buzz that came out of the latest Pokémon Presents broadcast centered on the trio of new games announced, but first let’s dive into what was said about New Pokémon Snap. The game, which launches on April 30, is a reinvigoration of Pokémon Snap from back on Nintendo 64. Fans have been wondering about some of the finer gameplay points and thankfully this presentation helped shed some light on exactly that. Here’s the newest trailer:

One of the biggest points brought up in this trailer revolves around photo mode and how shots are ranked. Let’s see what the official press release has to say:

A photo’s score will be based on the subjects’ poses, how large they appear, how directly they’re facing the camera, and where they fall in frame. Each photo will get one to four stars, indicating how common or rare the behavior displayed is. Players will have to take many photos to fill out their Photodex, which is their collection of Pokémon photographs.

Photos taken while conducting research can also be saved to a personal album, which is separate from the Photodex. When a course is completed, players can use the re-snap function to adjust the brightness, blur, zoom, and other aspects of their recently snapped photos. After photos are saved to the personal album, a photo-editing mode will enable players to customize their photos with stickers, frames, and filters.

What’s more, The Pokémon Company goes on to say that New Pokémon Snap “also has several online features that enable players to share photos and compete with others around the world through ranking systems.” There are opportunities to interact with the resident Pocket Monsters of the Lental region, too, including being able to toss something called Illumina orbs to make Pokémon glow and do different things. For those wondering, yes, you can also still lob fruit! It’s all shaping up to what seems like it will be a worthy successor to the original.
