New Pokemon Snap Is Receiving Brand New Areas & Pokemon On August 3

The announcement came alongside a trailer showing off brief snippets of what players can expect from some of these new areas. 

In the trailer, which can be seen below, we see Pokemon like Gyrados jumping over a waterfall, Snorlax waking up from a well-deserved nap, and even Feraligator swimming alongside us in the river.

That’s not all though, the trailer also shows us, shrinking? It seems like the ability to shrink down and explore Pokemon like never before. Honestly, the thought a Giant Wurmple is quite frightening, but we’re ready to take the challenge. 

The Lental Region was already filled with so much to check out that adding, even more, is quite the task, even for the most experienced Pokemon photographers. 

It makes sense though, so many iconic Pokemon were missing from the roster when the game was released, it’s nice to see some of them finally make their return. 

Are you ready to dive back into New Pokemon Snap when the update releases on August 3? Be sure to let us know what you think about it on the official Prima Games Twitter and Facebook pages.
