The editorial staff of the British Metro had the opportunity to conduct a substantial interview with Shigeru Ohmori and Junichi Masuda, of Game Freak. Topics to be discussed include a potential Pokemon Snap 2.
Pokemon Snap, a game for Nintendo 64, debuting back in 1999, has been made available by Nintendo on Wii and Wii U, but has never enjoyed a sequel. Inside, players could watch creatures born of Game Freak pencils in their natural environment. To capture them, however, the usual Poke Ball-based system was not used, but instead, it was based on the use of a camera, through which to capture our favourite Pokemon. Pokemon Snap saw the return of Professor Oak, who instructed us to create as many snapshots as possible within the six habitats on Pokemon Island.
Fan of the game, the Metro interviewer asked Masuda and Ohmori why a Pokemon Snap 2 has not yet been announced yet, although the team had the Wii U pad first and now even the Nintendo Labo camera. Amused by the observation, Masuda then offered the following consideration: “All I can say is that I don’t think we could just do the exact same thing again. Consequently, we should come up with a truly unique surprise for the game, if we realized it another”. What do you think, would you like to see Pokemon Snap return?
