New Pokemon Snap debuts Japanese TV commercial

Give me your best side

Shutterbugs waiting on the return of Pokemon Snap might enjoy this blink-and-you’ll-miss-it TV commercial for the upcoming Nintendo Switch release, which has started airing on Japanese television.

The typically enthusiastic short stars young actor Kokoro Tarada and YouTuber Fuwa-Chan as the duo prepare to enter the world of “Pokemon Ecology”, both dressed to the nines as old-school explorers and ready to get snap-happy on the wide variety of Pokemon that await within. Brief gameplay footage then gives us a sneak peek at all our favorite characters, including Pikachu… Apple Burner… LongBeak… and… Butterfly.

You can check out the commercial below, courtesy of NintendoEverything.

New Pokemon Snap launches on Nintendo Switch April 30. Pith helmet not required.
