If you’re both into Pokemon and photography, then this game is definitely for you.

Nintendo has just previewed a 93-second gameplay trailer for New Pokemon Snap, a fresh title for the Switch handheld console that combines the love of Pokemon with nature photography.

In New Pokemon Snap, players control a pokémon photographer traversing Lental, a region full natural wonders, from lush jungles to sandy beaches. Players travel in an auto-driving vehicle to conduct ecological surveys, observing and photographing various pokémon in their natural habitats.

Points are awarded based on the quality of the photos you take, and just like the original game, players can use items such as apples to lure pokémon in closer for a better shot. To accomplish the task, players must collaborate with pokémon expert Professor Mirror and his assistant Rita.

New Pokemon Snap is a sequel of Pokemon Snap, a classic Nintendo 64 game launched back in 1999. The old game’s objective is to take pictures of Pokémon, using items such as apples and "pester balls" to achieve better shots.

New Pokemon Snap will be avail able exclusively on Nintendo Switch starting April 30.
