Pokemon Snap Getting New Areas And 20 New Pokemon Today

The Pokémon Company International have announced a free content update for New Pokémon Snap on Nintendo Switch. Starting at 6:00 p.m. PDT on August 3, players with an internet connection can download the update, which will include three stunning new areas to visit plus 20 additional Pokémon to discover. Watch the new trailer for New Pokémon Snap here: https://youtu.be/_gKZ5-8LRKg

Three stunning new areas will be available to explore:

  • Secret Side Path (Day/Night) – The NEO-ONE shrinks to a tiny size when you explore this area, so the Pokémon you see will look gigantic! You can even hear their breathing and footsteps in this thrilling area, and you might spot new kinds of behavior from Pokémon you’ve seen before.
  • Mightywide River (Day/Night) – Mightywide River is a nurturing water source that provides the whole of Belusylva Island with sustenance. You’ll be conducting research as you ride down the river, so be on the lookout for rapids as you search for Pokémon, and keep your camera ready so you don’t miss capturing them in action.
  • Barren Badlands (Day/Night) – In this area, you’ll research the badlands of Voluca Island, where dry winds from the desert blow. This area has many peculiar features, from geysers to poisonous, gas-spewing swamps. Pokémon may be hiding underground or in the rocky cliffs, so keep your eyes peeled for them while you’re on your expedition.
