Back in 1999 the Pokemon craze was at an all time high and Nintendo were releasing spin-off after spin-off in an effort to cash in. One such spin-off, while only moderately successful in regards to some of the others (read Pokemon Stadium), went on to establish itself as a real fan favourite and that game was Pokemon Snap.
Over the last few years calls for a Pokemon Snap 2 have really picked up and it seems even reached the ears of Junichi Masuda, director of Pokémon X and Y who’s said.
“As a player I definitely want to play a cool new version of Pokemon Snap, but at the same time I also think if it was just a remake with better graphics I don’t think it would be as interesting as a lot of people are imagining. If someone was to end up developing it they’d have to come up with some cool ideas to really make it a good game for the current generation.”
Mr. Masuda want on to say the only thing holding a new Pokemon Snap back at this point is limited resources and the moment that changes so will the delay in getting the sequel.
