With the release date for New Pokémon Snap finally locked in, we can really start to get excited about this long-awaited sequel.

A shiny new trailer has today confirmed that the game will be available on 30th April. That clip gave us a quick glimpse at the game's brand new Lental Region, but let's take a closer look, shall we?

Below, you'll find a lovely selection of newly-released screenshots showing Pokémon, the new region, and just a taste of the Illumina Phenomenon – a strange occurrence that gives certain Pokémon and vegetation a special glow. Enjoy!

Well, Pichu and Grookey look almost too adorable...

Who wants in-game menus?

And finally, a few screenshots showing your camera's viewfinder – hold steady!
