Games in which you go on a safari seem to be an idea on the surface, but almost no one tried to implement it. This is understandable – if you propose hunting for existing animals, then there should be a lot of them. And everyone needs to be drawn and animated, and hardly anyone will undertake such a difficult project. With Pokemon in this regard, it is a little easier, if only because they are fictional. A similar experiment was carried out back in 1999 on the Nintendo 64, and now they have tried again.
Do all the work for the rest
At the beginning New pokémon Snap we find ourselves in the Lental region, where we meet Professor Mirror and his assistant. They work in the laboratory, and their task is to study all types of Pokémon and learn more about themselves and about the entire ecosystem of the nearby islands. The character is immediately given a research camera, with the help of which he has to photograph all the creatures he sees, and the professor will evaluate these pictures and enter them into the photodex.
In the original, besides the protagonist and the professor, there were no characters, so the plot was very schematic. Here the situation has changed, but not much: new heroes have appeared, there are more videos, and some dialogues have even been voiced – after Pokémon Sword it looks strange. But the story clearly doesn’t deserve to be played for its sake – as, indeed, in all Pokémon games. The professor, together with his assistants, is trying to understand the nature of large luminous Pokémon (in the original – illumina pokémon), so he does not let him go to all the islands at once and everything needs to be studied gradually – that’s the whole story.
