22 years after the original, New Pokemon Snap is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2021. Here’s everything you need to know about pre-purchasing, including pre-order bonuses, and more.

Snap fans have been requesting a follow-up to the 1999 Nintendo 64 title for many years, so naturally, players are on the edges of their seats waiting for the highly-anticipated sequel to finally arrive.

In April, New Pokemon Snap is transporting players to the Lental region where they must help Professor Mirror research the mysterious Illumina phenomenon by traveling through various locations and taking photographs.
