Freeze-frame: New Pokémon Snap gets free update next week

New Pokémon Snap free update

How are my photographer friends enjoying New Pokémon Snap? It’s been selling like hotcakes, so fans seem to like it. Nintendo wants to reward gamers who have been buying up this surprise sequel. Next week, on August 3, New Pokémon Snap will be receiving a free update. Three new areas and 20 more Pokémon will be added.

This free add-on for New Pokémon Snap is great for newcomers and existing fans

Here is a fresh trailer for the content expansion:

I love the shrinkage of the NEO-ONE. It gives off very Honey, I Shrunk the Kids vibes.

Here are the three new areas you’ll be exploring:

  • Secret Side Path: be turned into the size of a bug in order to photograph giant Pokémon. You’ll be able to hear their breathing and steps, which is something straight out of Jurassic Park.
  • Mightywide River: a water source awaits, so expect to see lots of aquatic Pokémon.
  • Barren Badlands: geysers and poisonous swamps are this area’s features (it’s a good thing you’re under protective glass). You’ll have to search high and low to get photos of various critters.

Enthusiasts, will you be downloading the New Pokémon Snap free update next week? Let us know your plans below!
