Alekon’s cute, cuddly, and colourful creatures are striking a pose and ready for you and your camera to take to the rails. And publisher Forever Entertainment when the game launches on Switch on 6th April for $15.99 / £14.39 / €15.99.
Releasing to positive reviews on Steam back in 2021, Alekon wears its Pokémon Snap influences on its sleeve with whimsical creatures for you to snap and an on-rails path to follow. However, The Alekon Company has gone one step further. This is more than just an on-rails photography adventure — you can now make friends with the animals.
That’s right, every single creature you meet has a unique personality and you can bond with them and help them with their problems. Not only that, but you also have the opportunity to roam each of the five areas that you can photograph — so it’s not just on rails. There’s no grinding, and any time you get a new quest, that means there’s something new to discover.
Here’s all the details from Forever Entertainment’s press release:
