New Pokémon Snap update will add new courses and 20 more Pokémon

*chanting* Psyduck bathing! Psyduck bathing!

You can now take a tranquil river tour and watch Psyduck bathe, thanks to a significant update coming to New Pokémon Snap. The free update will bring three additional areas and 20 Pokémon to the game on Aug. 3, The Pokémon Company announced.

The update brings three new areas to explore: Secret Side Path, Mightywide River, and Barren Badlands. Each of the new paths will get a day and night version. Screenshots shared by The Pokémon Company showed images of Pokémon like Rockruff, Swalot, Feraligatr, and Tropius. You can check out some of the images below.

The new areas will introduce a neat new trick or two. In the Secret Side Path, you’ll shrink down to the size of an ant and get up close and personal with a bunch of giant Pokémon. So now even the tiniest of Pokémon — like Wurmple! — will look big.

The Mightywide River takes you on a tubing cruise of sorts as you photograph Pokémon while floating downstream. The final new course is the Barren Badlands, where you’ll explore beautiful, red rocky cliffs. An image of it shows an Onyx poking its head out from a cave wall.

New Pokémon Snap came out in the end of April with 24 courses for aspiring young photographers to explore. This new update will bring a hefty slew of content for players to take flicks of their favorite Pokémon.
