New Pokémon Snap

Despite not exactly being an open-world game, New Pokémon Snap is not exactly a linear experience either. Right from the start, you can decide to go wherever you want in the Lental region, but only if you have unlocked the different levels.

As being able to go wherever you want on the condition you have unlocked new levels is somewhat counterintuitive, we have put together a guide that tells you exactly what you need to do to unlock new levels in New Pokémon Snap.
