‘New Pokemon Snap’ Sequel, ‘Pokemon Cafe Mix,’ ‘Pokemon Smile’ Announced!

Today’s Pokemon Presents revealed three upcoming games and several news bits! The presentation was hosted by Tsunekazu Ishihara, president and CEO of The Pokemon Company.

‘Pokemon Snap’ Sequel for the Switch

A Pokemon Snap sequel called New Pokemon Snap is currently in development for the Nintendo Switch. No other significant information was revealed.

“This game will take Trainers on an adventure to unknown islands overflowing with natural sights such as jungles and beaches, where they can research various Pokemon in their natural habitats. They will take photos to make their very own in-game Pokemon Photodex, all while discovering new, never-before-seen Pokemon expressions and behaviors.”

The original Pokemon Snap was released for N64 on March 21st, 1999 in Japan and in the United States on July 26th, 1999.

‘Pokemon Cafe Mix’ Smartphone Puzzle Game

A new Pokemon puzzle game called Pokemon Cafe Mix will soon be available for the Nintendo Switch and smartphones. Like previous puzzle games, you link Pokemon icons together to eliminate them and earn points. It will be free to start.

“The player will be the owner of a café that Pokemon visit, where they will work alongside Pokemon to prepare drinks and dishes for Pokemon customers by completing puzzles. Pokemon on the café’s staff have special Café Skills that can be used to help complete puzzles. Once a puzzle is completed, the player can serve an order to a customer. The player can increase their friendship levels with Pokemon by serving them delicious drinks and dishes. As more puzzles are completed, the café can be upgraded by getting new tools or having new areas added. New Pokemon may come visit, lured in by the different upgrades.”

 

‘Pokemon Smile’ Smartphone Game

A new smartphone game called Pokemon Smile will allow younger players to capture Pokemon as they brush their teeth. This is to encourage dental hygiene. It will be available later today.

Pokemon Smile uses a mobile device’s camera to observe the player’s toothbrushing activity. If the player skillfully brushes their teeth, they can defeat cavity-causing bacteria depicted in the game and then catch Pokemon. The game will guide the user through the toothbrushing process, so each playthrough can help them brush all areas in their mouth.”

“Parents can receive notifications from Pokemon Smile at up to three set times per day that remind them it’s time for kids to brush their teeth. They can also set the duration of each toothbrushing session to be between one and three minutes, based on the varying needs of children of different ages. The app is filled with elements to encourage the player to continue playing the game with the intent of slowly building a habit of brushing their teeth. Players will want to keep coming back to catch over one hundred species of Pokemon in Pokemon Smile and fill out their in-app Pokédex. They can also collect fun in-app decorative headwear to display on themselves virtually as they brush their teeth.”

Zeroaora Max Raid Battle

A special Max Raid Battle featuring Zeroara will start today through June 28th to celebrate the release of Isle of Armor. If a million players participate, everyone will get a shiny Zeroara.

Pokemon GO

Victini will be added to the game during Pokemon GO Fest 2020. Mega Evolution Pokemon will be added later this year.

Another Announcement Next Week

The Pokemon Company will be announcing another big project next week on June 24th.

    POKEMON SNAP AHHHHH


    For the other announcement next month, what do we think the probability is for actual Gen 4 remakes? I'd expect it to be a pretty Big game announcement and not spin-off related at the very least.

    New Pokémon Snap was not on my bingo card.

    Also wouldn’t mind a new Pokémon Pinball.

    I feel like the DLC is being used as the main attraction for 2020 (in the reveal vid it felt heavily implied that they were giving DLC for the regular game rather than a third version), so I'd imagine that if we are getting D/P remakes they'd be 2021. If that is the case - then this is far too early to reveal them.

    edit: more thoughts on next weeks announcement

    However - for a big announcement I don't think it would just be a spinoff, unless said spinoff was something with an insanely big fan demand, but from what I've seen (which is admittedly limited) I don't think there's anything with that level of demand.
    For something that's got a whole presentation for the reveal, I feel like it has to be a mainline game. Even though I said above I don't think we'd get D/P remakes until next year, I wonder if I might have been wrong. I wouldn't have expected them to be pushing another game out before both parts of the DLC for SwSh were out, but I'm kind of doubting that now.
    I said it above, the DLC announcement heavily implied that the DLC was being done as a replacement for a third game, so I feel like that pretty much crosses any enhanced SwSh games off the list. Plus it makes no sense to me as to why they'd put out DLC for games if they were already planning enhanced versions (the newer ones would have to be drastically different to be worth it). although watch me be wrong now I've said that

    Also, there's the important matter of the Johto mons in the background during the presentation. Looking at it now, I can see the starters (well Meganium isn't actually visible but I can't see them only putting two of them there), legendaries, Sudowoodo, Ampharos and Politoed. Plus, the Eevee in front of the LGE package has Espeon and Umbreon with it. Normally I don't read too much into these things, but they can be crafty with these little hints. Even though it was said in October I believe that GF aren't planning any more Let's Go games, I wonder if that was intentional to throw us off.
    There's also the dark Pikachu which I don't recognise from anywhere. Unless it's just there for aesthetic purposes, maybe that has something to do with it as well.

    Now I've written that last paragraph, I think I'm about 70% sure we're getting new games either set in Johto or heavily featuring Johto Pokemon.

    99% chance it's Let's Go Espeon and Umbreon. The Pokemon Company is notorious for hints in the background while Ishihara talks. Too many Johto Pokemon to be a coincidence, but the big giveaway is the Let's Go Switch bundle with Espeon and Umbreon in front.

    I'm really hyped for Snap and Cafè Mix.
     
  12. Pokémon Snap has to be my favorite spin-off game, so I was pleasantly surprised when they showed New Pokémon Snap. A long-overdue dream come true!

    After we didn't get it for the Wii U I was convinced that we were never going to get another Snap game. Snap was one of my favorite games as a kid and I remember those kiosks at Blockbuster (yes I am old). Outside of the Gen 4 remakes, this was the best possible game they could have announced.

    There has already been a Pokken Tournament on the Switch (Pokken Tournament DX), but considering it was a great success, I wouldn't be surprised if there was going to be a second game on the same console.

    I wasn't around to be able to experience the second Snap game as a form of nostalgia, but I think I might still get it as it will probably have a lot of Pokes to take pictures of.

    I cannot fathom why they keep using the baffling, disastrous and confusing "New" prefix for things.

    New Super Mario Bros, for example. And the worst offender: New 3DS.

    How hard was it to just call it Pokemon Snap 2? Or Pokemon Snap Switch? What happens when they release "Pokemon Snap 3" for the next console, etc etc the list of problems continues? It's just flabbergasting. They need to fire the everyone in Marketing who thinks "New ________" is a good way to name sequels and upgrades. It's simply not.

    Criticism of the name aside, I'm extremely hyped for this game and it gives me shivers to think about what it would be like for the main series to look more like Pokemon Snap. *swoons*

    Oh, do I ever agree with you about the "New" prefix, as it doesn't really add anything, and it will be outdated in a few years, invalidating the "New".

    I realize that the prefix is supposed to indicate an evolution in a series. It would have been weird for there to be Mario 1-8 all being named Super Mario Bros. 1, Super Mario Bros. 2, etc, but it doesn't really fit with something that hasn't had multiple entries (ie, 3DS, Pokemon Snap).

    Still hyped for New Pokemon Snap tho

    I've searched hard for news in this, but haven't seen anything official yet. There's a Pokemon FB group page I follow, and there's a rumor that Mitsuhiro Arita has been hospitalized. I want to verify first. I want to verify before eBay sellers price gouge the hell out of his autograph cards.

    I don't think it's true because there is still nothing on it yet, and I'm sure reporters would have jumped on that ASAP. It still could be, but my guess is that it's just a rumour.

    (stock up on Mitsuhiro Arita's signed cards just in case though)
    Exactly my first reaction
