A special Pokemon Presents broadcast recently aired, revealing a number of new projects, and one of the bigger announcements was the return of a Nintendo 64 classic called Pokemon Snap.

You can view the whole presentation below but specifically for the Pokemon Snap announcement, you can skip to the 5:20 mark of the video:

Here is the overview of the game courtesy of Nintendo:

Seek out and take in-game pictures of Pokémon in their native environments in the New Pokémon™ Snap game, only for the Nintendo Switch system! You’ll even discover behaviors and expressions you’ve never seen before when you encounter and research lively wild Pokémon.

Travel to unknown islands with beautiful scenery like lush jungles and sandy beaches. The Pokémon pictures you take there will be used to build your very own Pokémon Photodex!

This brand-new game brings the gameplay of the 1999 Pokémon Snap game for the Nintendo 64 system to life on the Nintendo Switch system with unknown islands to discover and different Pokémon to see!

Photograph lively wild Pokémon in their natural habitats as you research and explore unknown islands. Journey through a variety of environments such as beaches and jungles to capture previously-unseen Pokémon behaviors. The photos you take can also be used to fill out your very own Pokémon Photodex!

No release date was set for the upcoming title and it is being developed by Bandai Namco Studios Inc.
