The Nintendo 64 classic, Pokémon Snap, holds a special place in many gamers’ hearts. I, for one, adored the original game, having sunk dozens of hours into one that could easily be completed within a few hours. So this won’t come as a surprise that many, MANY, fans have been clambering for Pokemon Snap 2.
In an interview with the popular UK site, Metro, Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda and Shigeru Ohmori had this to say:
GC: If I could just end with two quick requests, one of which I think you get a lot and one of which I’m sure you don’t. Firstly, I can’t believe it’s 2019 and there still isn’t a Pokémon Snap 2.
GC: You had the Wii U GamePad and now you’ve got Nintendo Labo VR, which has an actual physical camera, why is there not a Pokémon Snap 2?! I’ll pre-order it right now if you agree to make it!
JM: [laughs] All I can say is that I don’t think we can just make the same thing again. So we’d have to come up with a very unique twist on this if we do make another one.
