This Wednesday, the Pokémon Company decided to bet on the nostalgia market and announced the return of one of their most popular games of the past 30 years: Pokémon Snap, but this time for the Switch console.

With the class title Nintendo 64 from 1999, 63 of the 151 first generation Pokémon could be “photographed” in their natural habitats such as deserts, beaches, jungles and much more.

Nintendo said that in Pokémon Direct, a virtual event, in this new version, known as the New Pokémon Snap, users can take photos to create their PhotoDex, but didn’t provide details on how the points are counted.

No exact date has been given for the arrival of New Pokémon Snap on the Switch as the title is still under development.
