New Pokemon Snap: Learn More About the Game and Earn My Nintendo Platinum Points
A new website features fun activities for fans to complete.
Ahead of the launch of New Pokemon Snap on April 30, Nintendo has launched an “Explore the Lental Region” website that allows fans to learn more about the game’s setting, features, and the Pokemon they’ll be able to encounter.
In New Pokemon Snap, players will become a Pokemon photographer on a quest to create a Pokemon Photodex by photographing Pokemon in their natural habitats. You can learn more about the game in our previous coverage.
In order to use the Explore the Lental Region website, you’ll need to login to your Nintendo account.
The website features a map of the Lental region with eight interactive stops. At each stop, players can watch video clips from the game and read details about the game's features.
Each stop also has a different photo frame that you can use to decorate your own photos. You can upload a photo from your computer or use your computer’s camera to capture a new picture at each stop. From there, you can share the picture to Facebook or Twitter, or save it to your computer.
Finally, once you’ve watched every video at a single stop, you’ll earn 25 My Nintendo Platinum Points for your Nintendo account. If you complete all eight stops, you’ll earn 200 points. These points can be redeemed for Nintendo-themed merchandise on Nintendo’s website. Nintendo said items inspired by New Pokemon Snap will be available in the future.
The Explore the Lental Region website will be available until May 31.
New Pokemon Snap will be released on Switch on April 30. The game is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
