In a recent interview about Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, director of the Pokémon games Junichi Masuda talked about the fans' desire to see a new Pokémon Snap game.

Masuda-san was clear to point out that the N64 cult classic "wasn't originally developed by Game Freak", although it does seem that he has a certain fondness for the series as a gamer.

As a player I definitely want to play a cool new version of Pokemon Snap but at the same time I also think if it was just a remake with better graphics I don't think it would be as interesting as a lot of people are imagining.

It's no secret that many fans have been clamouring for a new entry to compliment the spin-off title, but like the remakes of Ruby and Sapphire, Masuda-san was adamant that it would have to evolve upon the game rather than just updating the graphics.

If someone was to end up developing it they'd have to come up with some cool ideas to really make it a good game for the current generation. It's sort of like what I was saying about Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. If it was just a direct port that would be kind of neat as well, but having new elements is definitely important.

It seems whilst there are no plans we know of for a successor to Pokémon Snap it's something that director has clearly thought about, so who knows?
