New Pokémon Snap released for the Nintendo Switch: Should you buy?

Calling all photographers: the follow-up to the iconic Nintendo 64 game Pokémon Snap is finally here! The aptly named New Pokémon Snap can be downloaded or purchased physically for the Nintendo Switch and has been well received by critics.

Is New Pokémon Snap worth buying?

Many fans are wondering whether this on-rails photography game is worth their time.

Buy if…

  • You’re looking for a nostalgia hit
  • You enjoy relaxing games
  • You want to see Pokémon interact with each other and their environment

Skip if…

  • You need fast-paced gameplay to remain interested
  • You want a Pokémon RPG experience
  • You’re “too old” (you aren’t) to appreciate the fantasy of the Pokémon world
