Earlier today, Bandai Namco revealed that New Pokemon Snap will be getting a free update on Nintendo Switch. The game released at the end of April, and many fans assumed that the base game wouldn't be accompanied by any additional content. However, it seems that three new areas are being added to the game. There will also be 20 new Pokemon, including Mew, Feraligatr, Psyduck, and more. This proved to be a very welcome surprise for fans, and many took to social media to share their happiness with the news. It seems like a lot of players will be revisiting the game when the update drops on August 3rd!

I’m excited for the New Pokémon Snap free content update I thought I was almost done with NPS. This game has more than meets the eye. I love how that Gyarados jumps out of the river current in the wild #NewPokémonSnap #pokémonsnap pic.twitter.com/JZg4PsXoN0— Vintage_huey (@HueyVintage) July 30, 2021

I sure hope jigglypuff is in the new Pokémon snap update. It’s my only negative of the game.— Charlotte (@7_Charlotte_7) July 30, 2021

Can't beat the price, either.
FREE POKEMON SNAP CONTENT?! YES PLEASE— CJ 😶🌫️ Davis (@sameolCJ) July 29, 2021
This has been a very welcome surprise!
I'm actually just so excited about the content update for New Pokemon Snap, I can't wait for Wednesday! The base game already blew my expectations out of the water, and now they're dropping a free content update?? I am in love.— Khiren 🍏 Red Panda Vtuber 🍎 (@_Khiren) July 30, 2021
Some wish it had more Pokemon, though.
New Pokemon Snap is getting a free content update out of nowhere. A few new areas is neat, but only 20 new Pokemon is eh. I like that it's getting this support though; it gives you a reason to go back to it. I'll see if if I want to check it out or not.— Weavy (@WeavyTheSomeone) July 29, 2021
