How would you like to celebrate the release of New Pokemon Snap, and cap-off the 25th Anniversary of Pokemon, by getting your ‘Poke-mitts’ on an Instax Mini Link Smartphone Printer!?

You could soon be capturing real-world photos of your favourite Nintendo Switch titles, and all you have to do is show-off your New Pokemon Snapshots with us!

So put your Poke-photography skills to the test by snapping photos in New Pokemon Snap that fit the weekly theme, and then sharing them on Twitter (inc. @NintendoPlayUK and #NPUKSnapshots) or Instagram (inc. @NintendoPlayersUK and #NPUKSnapshots)

Be sure to check out our website, Twitter, or Instagram page every Sunday at 5PM for a new theme, and a new opportunity to earn more entries into the prize draw.
