Pokemon director Junichi Masuda has said that as a gamer he would love to play a brand new version of Pokemon Snap running on the latest hardware. However, Masuda said that just adding improved current gen visuals wouldn’t make it as interesting as people imagine.
“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. It’s sort of like what I was saying about Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. If it was just a direct port that would be kind of neat as well, but having new elements is definitely important.”
