Things have been quiet for New Pokemon Snap lately. The game has been available on the Nintendo Switch for a few months now, but there hasn’t been much post-launch support. A couple of updates in late-May fixed some bugs, but that was it. Well, it seems that The Pokemon Company has changed that.
A brand new update for New Pokemon Snap released overnight. Once you update the game, it should be at version 2.0.0. As for what the update did, it is more than just bug fixes this time. 3 new areas have been added that contain 20 new Pokemon, as well as the addition of new profile icons, stickers, and more. The full patch notes are down below.
