Nintendo announced New Pokemon Snap in June 2020 and released footage of the game as recently as last month. But during Friday's Pokemon Presents livestream, we were treated to a more extensive look at the game.

The game includes 200 Pokemon from eight generations of games. It's been a long time coming for fans of the series -- the first Pokemon Snap hit stores in 1999 and fans have been clamoring for a sequel for almost 22 long years.

New Pokemon Snap hits stores on April 30 for Nintendo Switch.

Along with the trailer came the reveals of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, remakes of the 2007 Nintendo DS games, and Pokemon Legends: Arceus. The livestream came a day before the 25th anniversary of Pokemon Red and Green's original release in Japan, which is being marked with a virtual Post Malone concert
