UK video game news publication Game Central managed to secure a chat with Pokemon producer Junichi Masuda and director Shigeru Ohmori. One of the things which the site asked was whether there’s a possibility we could eventually get a new Pokemon Snap game. With the advent of new technologies such as Nintendo Labo it could well be the perfect time for the company to try it. However, Mr. Masuda said if they did revisit the series it would need a “very unique twist.”
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.
