Pokémon Snap first released on March 21st. 1999. Twenty years later, there is still no word of a sequel of this spinoff Pokémon game. Many fans think that Nintendo Labo VR would be a perfect way to bring the series back. Taking pictures of Pokémon in virtual reality is something I don’t think anyone would complain about. In a recent interview by GameCentral, Junichi Masuda from Game Freak responded to a question about a potential revival of Pokémon Snap. He said a Pokémon Snap 2 would have to deliver a “very unique twist” to be made.
GameCentral: 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!
Junichi Masuda: 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.
