The free content update releases on August 3
The Pokémon photography safari continues in a brand new free update for New Pokémon Snap on August 3, opening up three new areas for Pokégraphers to explore, photograph, and shrink down to get the best shot ... wait, shrink? Released last night, the content was revealed in a new trailer for the Nintendo Switch game.
And yes, the new Secret Side Path area of Florio Island goes full "Honey! I shrunk my NEO-One!" letting players become the size of a Joltik and see Pokémon from a whole new angle – literally!
The new update comes with three new areas; the aforementioned Secret Side Path, Mightywide River, and the Barren Badlands, which despite its name, seems quite full of rocky Pokémon. The update is free to all New Pokémon Snap players and is set to be ready to download on August 3.
