    Pokémon Snap not originally a Pokémon game

    I don't know if it's much but:

    I agree, putting Pokemon in the game made it more interesting.

    Grei not the color

    That definitely made it more interesting. Otherwise... you'd be taking pictures of... what? Animals? Plants? Objects? That sounds horribly boring.

    Definitely sounds like it would have been a flop with Pokemon.

    The game was kind of boring even with pokemon, in my opinion. The only thing I loved about Pokemon Snap is that you could print out stickers of the photos you took. I love stickers! ^__^

    I remember playing the game at a friends house when I was young. I never did have a N64 so I had never even heard of the game.

    For a Pokémon fan at the tender age of five the game was exciting stuff. I really liked seeing the pokémon that stayed in the background and to this day I still rememer always screaming with happiness when I spotted Lapras on the beach level.


    Anyway I agree that a photography game would be simply dull and boring.

    Smart move making that game into a pokemon game. Of course, it still wasn't that great, but at least it didn't completely bomb.
     
  8. There is no way it would have been successful without an established franchise. I'm not surprised though seeing as only like 64 Pokemon are even in the game.

    Recently Iwata Asks column Wii.com, Satoru Iwata, CEO of Nintendo of Japan revealed that Pokemon Snap Pokemon game was not originally. Photo-taking the game turned into a Pokémon game due to a lack of motivation, where the world meets Pokémon empty hole.

    Well, thank God it was. Pokemon Snap was one of my favorite games as a kid. I still have a bunch of stickers.

    These days it's pretty awful, but it could end up amazing if Nintendo made a sequel on the Nintendo 3DS with Augmented Reality.

    I loved pokemon snap. I remember I wasn't going to get it originally but I couldn't get my hands on a copy of stadium 2 so bought it as a consolation. Never did print any stickers, but trying to 'snap em all' was so much fun. Trying to get the pokemon to evolve and figuring out where they were all hiding was great.
    I would love Pokemon Snap 2... More levels + heaps of later generation pokemon = awesome!
    Taking pictures in Beyond Good and Evil was fun too.
    Ah, good times :)
