Game Freak: Pokemon Snap on Wii U or 3DS a Possibility

Pokemon Snap


In an interview with Polygon, Game Freak Director, Junichi Masuda discussed the possibility of Wii U getting its very own Pokémon Snap title. Fortunately, we didn’t get corporate speak. Matsuda was a bit more straight-forward:  “Personally, I really love the Pokémon Snap game, but it wouldn’t be interesting if we just released the same game, how it was before, for the Wii U or 3DS,” Matsuda said. “So we have to come up with a new idea or something that will make it more appealing to players. Sometime down the road, we may have something.”

If you remember, Nintendo released Pokémon Snap way back in 1999 on Nintendo 64. The title was a hit, becoming one of the best-selling software that year. Some fans have clamored for a Wii U or 3DS version due to both featuring cameras and motion sensors. Now, would you like to go on another Pokémon photo safari? Or do you prefer to leave the trip to the more adventurous among us?

  1. Didn’t this interview happen a while ago and an article posted here about it afterwards? I’m getting a feeling of deja vu.

  2. Incredibly ironic timing. I just picked up Snap for $2.

  3. @MikeIsaPoet: This interview happened within the last week. Pokemon Snap murmurings happened a while back; most of it was just fans wishing for a modern title on the then – newly released Wii U.

    @Born Flunky: Yeah — Things just work out like that sometimes. 🙂
