New Pokémon Snap‘s release date is coming up fast, but if you just can’t wait to explore the lush Lental Region, Nintendo and The Pokémon Company have got something really neat for you to check out. The “Explore the Lental Region” official website is now open, and offers a virtual tour of the places you’ll see in the game.
The website includes eight spots on the map players can click on to learn more about various Pokémon and their habitats. You’ll need to have a My Nintendo account to access the site, and you can earn My Nintendo Platinum Points while you poke around the website, which can be exchanged for exclusive rewards from Nintendo. There are also special digital picture frames you can obtain in order to spice up your real-life photography.
In keeping with Nintendo’s recent obsession with inducing FOMO in its audience, the “Explore the Lental Region” website will be open until May 31st. The good news is that you don’t have to finish your Lental journey in one sitting to reap the rewards, so feel free to take your time with it before that deadline. Why Nintendo feels the need to add a deadline to a fun promotional website is beyond me, but then again, scholars have tried to understand the House of Mario’s mysterious ways for many eons now.
New Pokémon Snap will launch on April 30th exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned to RPGFan for more coverage of New Pokémon Snap!
