New Pokemon Snap

Many have wondered why Pokemon Snap has taken so long to return. After the game appeared on the N64, we haven’t seen a new entry in over twenty years. There have been opportunities for Pokemon Snap to return, with some feeling that the Wii U GamePad would have been a perfect fit for example.

Interestingly, it seems that there have been internal discussions previously about returning to Pokemon Snap over the years. Haruki Suzaki, who’s directing the Switch entry, told Metro that he “heard there had been a couple of attempts at making a new Pokemon Snap before.”

Regarding the origins of New Pokemon Snap, Suzaki said:
