The first major update for New Pokémon Snap is now officially live on the Nintendo Switch. As previously mentioned, this free content adds 20 additional pocket monsters and three new courses. There'll also be some quality of life improvements. Here are the full patch notes, courtesy of Nintendo's official website:
Ver. 2.0.0 (Released August 3, 2021)
- 3 new areas have been added: Secret Side Path, Mightywide River, and Barren Badlands.
- These new areas also contain 20 new Pokémon.
- Additional research titles, profile icons, photo filters, stickers, and frames have been added.
- Search options for Other Players’ Photos have changed.
- Other issues have also been addressed to improve the game-play experience.
Here are more details on the new content you can enjoy:
Secret Side Path – The NEO-ONE shrinks when you explore this secret side path in Florio Island’s nature park, so the Pokémon you see here look gigantic.
Mightywide River – A large nurturing river flows through a rugged valley on Belusylva Island, providing the entire island with sustenance. You’ll be conducting research as you ride down the river, so be on the lookout for rapids.
Barren Badlands – In this area, you’ll research the badlands of Voluca Island, where dry winds from the desert blow. This area has many peculiar features, from geysers to poisonous, gas-spewing swamps.

Slightly Newer Pokemon Snap
Who needs a Playdate when you've got New Pokémon Snap!?
I mean this unironically l, btw.
The new content looks awesome.
Now I know what I'll be doing after work.
...I'll take a look at it...eventually. Been playing Skyward Sword HD lately. lol
Free updates are always welcome. Great news.
Shocked this isn't paid DLC, even more glad I purchased this day 1.
I hope this is the first of many updates, I don’t even care if some end up being paid. Seriously, there’s now 234 Pokemon in this game compared to the first one’s 63. We’re 18 short of having quadruple the content! This is honestly one of the highest quality Pokemon titles in years (thanks Namco), I’d happily shell out money to keep it going. Heck, I already mentally planned updates and expected to have to pay for anything we get, this is a decent amount for free in an already complete game.
@shinesprites thank you, I just think complaining about everything that comes out isn’t productive. We need to praise games that are done right. whether or not you like Snap, you gotta admit this game had a lot of love and attention to detail!
Such an underrated game and this free update is amazing
@HamatoYoshi Such an underrated profile photo and them movies are amazing (except the 3rd one, we do not talk about it)
@Joriss the first one from 1990 is beyond awesome, such a close vision of the original comic book.
what about stability?
I have to get back to it after I've finished all the other stuff I'm playing. Great Ace Attorney and Nocturne. Snap was good fun!
Things added that are inexplicably missing from the official patch, and not included in this article.

Was hoping for labo VR support. Great update tho👍
Nice! I’m definitely going to dive back into this game once I’m done with Skyward Sword!
