Do you know why I can’t feel bad about Nintendo’s failure with The Wii U catching on?
Pokemon Snap was at one time the 2nd most wanted game by fans for a new entry on Wii U. The Pokemon Company gave excuses that they would have to come up with something new technology wise and unexpected if it was made today, especially considering that people taking photos is so common. Also, since HAL made it originally, they would probably be the ones to make the sequel and Pokemon Company certainly wasn’t preventing it from happening.
YOUR COMPANY COULDN’T FIND OUT WHAT TO DO WITH THEIR OWN GAMEPAD’S GIMMICKS DESPITE THE FACT THAT FANS IMMEDIATELY WOULD KNOW THAT A WII U/3DS’S CONTROLLER WOULD BE THE PERFECT ‘NEW TECHNOLOGY’ FOR A POKEMON SNAP GAME, AND YOU STILL NEVER MADE IT!!!
IT WAS THE SECOND MOST REQUESTED GAME BY FANS.
psst: Nintendo… Fans are the ones that give you money…. dumb asses.
There were 3 Pokemon stadium games for N64, 2 RPG games for Gamecube, and Battle Revolution on Wii ditched the story and went back to stadium style. The original 3 generations have all been re-made/imagined on later hardware. My point is… PEOPLE ARE FINE PLAYING A GAME THAT ISN’T RADICALLY DIFFERENT!
Slap optional gyroscope gameplay, majorly updated graphics, allow it to send photos to phones, e-mails, or facebook, and call it a day. That could literally be a budget game that you re-cycle 3D models from Super Smash Bros. for, and you could get away with selling it for full price. Why do you hate making money?
With the success of Pokemon Go, which for the record does allow players to take photos of Pokemon, perhaps Nintendo will finally make a new Pokemon Snap, despite the fact that they could have/should have made one on the original Wii even.
I know I’m beating a dead horse hear, but it’s like saying “You know what was popular? Mario Party. Let’s never make a new one ever again.”
