Photography Sim Umurangi Generation is Getting DLC and a Switch Port Later This Year

See the world in even more ways.

Mastering the camera is tricky. For those who have already become proficient with Umurangi Generation's virtual lenses and tools, a new expansion is on the way to add a whole new set of gear.

Announced last night, Umurangi Generation: Macro is the first DLC for the indie photography sim. The original game focused on snapping pics in a chaotic world that was both colorful and crumbling. The Macro DLC seems to be heading to new areas of this world like the Depths, a shanty town outside the UN's purview.

Among the new tools joining your photographer's arsenal are two very interesting—and seemingly Jet Set Radio-inspired—are a spray can and a pair of roller skates. Spray paint lets you tag areas and add additional lighting effects, while skates let you navigate the world faster. Crouching for shots has also been added, so you can get lower for that perfect angle.

Umurangi Generation: Macro is scheduled for Nov. 7, and will be an extra $9.99. For those who haven't tried the game yet or maybe don't have a PC to play it on, Umurangi Generation is also coming to Nintendo Switch later this year.

Honestly, Umurangi Generation has been one of the year's biggest surprises for me. What I originally saw as a Pokemon Snap successor is actually a fair bit more; without giving away its big moments, Umurangi Generation goes places with its different areas and challenges. It's one I've been pestering people to play ever since I finished it, and with new DLC and a Switch port on the way, there are even more reasons to check it out.
