The year was 1999. The world was flying high on the world of Pokémon. Pokémon Red and Blue had taken us by storm, the anime was one of the biggest shows on TV, and the trading cards were worth disgusting amounts of money. It was in this atmosphere that Pokémon Snap hit the Nintendo 64, and it was unlike any other game out there at the time.
Back when it first hit, I’m not sure it hit as well as one would think, but it’s certainly had a place in many fans’s hearts since then, so it’s only natural for them to want a sequel, given that it’s been nearly 20 years since it hit. But does that mean we can ever get a sequel for it?
Metro asked this very question of Pokémon Sword and Shield producer and Game Freak board of directors member Junichi Masuda. Here’s what Masuda had to say.
“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.”
Honestly, if there was a console that would have been a good fit for a Pokémon Snap sequel, it would have been on the Wii U, as the gamepad itself could have been used as a pretty cool camera. Either way, it sounds like that game isn’t even on their minds, so if it were to happen, it likely wouldn’t be for at least another handful of years or so.
