New Pokemon Snap features a lure known as fluffruit that you can use to create unique photo opportunities. 

Nintendo revealed the adorable new name of the lure in New Pokemon Snap in a post on Twitter, along with some shots of Torchic getting ready to munch on the fluffruit, and Pichu and Grookey checking out the tasty treat. 

Described as a "tasty fruit" found in New Pokemon Snap's Lental region, Pokemon are said to love fluffruit. You can throw one of these yummy treats near a little critter "to catch its attention or possibly watch it eat", as well as also set up unique photo opportunities. 

In the original Pokemon Snap on the N64, you could use a "Pokemon Food" item that looks just like an apple. By throwing these apples at the Pokemon, you could catch their attention and potentially set up a special shot. It was also a great way to draw Pokemon out if they're hiding away somewhere.  

The fluffruit appears to be the same thing, albeit with a much cuter name. The remake of the classic Pokemon photo-snapping adventure that was officially revealed in June last year is set to launch on the Switch on April 30, 2021. Nintendo dropped a shiny new trailer announcing the New Pokemon Snap release date earlier this month, as well as giving a brief glimpse at the character you'll be playing. 

Thanks to the game's official product page, the New Pokemon Snap file size was also revealed, along with the mention of "online support".

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
