New Pokémon Snap was released on April 30, 2021. It was developed by Bandai Namco Studios. It was published by Nintendo and The Pokémon Company.

     New Pokémon Snap, the player is a Pokémon photographer who visits various islands in the Lental region to help the research studies of Professor Mirror and his assistants Rita and Phil. Taking photographs helps the player build a compendium called a Photodex. There are over 200 Pokémon to take photos of.

     Each photo the player takes is graded by Professor Mirror on a scale of one to four stars based on how rare the current activity of the Pokémon is. Each photo is also given a score taking into account things like shot composition, how close the Pokémon is, and whether they are facing the camera or not. Players can decide to save photos to the Photodex, which can hold up to four photos of each Pokémon. Only one photo of each rating can be saved. As players snap higher-quality photos, they earn Expedition Points that go toward improving the Research Level of each area in the Lental region. Upon achieving higher research levels will open up more levels to explore in that area.

     The game received favorable reviews. It had sold 2.07 million copies by June 30, 2021.
