You might also want to keep tabs on this Amazon link for the return of the Pokemon Pikachu Instax Mini Link printer bundle from Fujifilm. It's basically a modern twist on the Pokemon Snap stations that were available in Blockbuster stores for the original Nintendo 64 game. The printer bundle sells out in a heartbeat each time it becomes available. However, at the time of writing the printer without the Pikachu case can still be backordered on Amazon for $99.99.
New Pokemon Snap is the long-awaited sequel to the original Pokemon Snap game. New Pokemon Snap will follow the same basic gameplay pattern as the original - players will choose a course and then take photos of Pokemon as they slowly progress through a set route, using various items to lure Pokemon out and get them to exhibit unusual behavior.
However, New Pokemon Snap features several new innovations that should make gameplay a lot more enjoyable. In addition to having branching route options, each course can be leveled-up to add new Pokemon and new Pokemon behavior. Additionally, New Pokemon Snap will also feature more of a plot, as players are tasked with investigating the Illumina phenomenon, which causes Pokemon and some plants to glow. The cause of this phenomenon is unclear, but players can use Illumina Orbs to cause Pokemon and special plants called Crystabloom flowers to start glowing. The game likely has a ton more surprises to find, and players should look forward to spending hours trying to crack every mystery the Lental region has to offer.
