The world is ready.

Recently I have been thinking a lot about Pokémon Snap, like I assume most people in the world do and I really think/hope that we could finally see a sequel announced at E3 this year. I never really understood why there was never a sequel to this game, it did OK commercially and critically, they have sequels for just about every other Pokémon ever and in my opinion it is probably the best spin off game that the franchise has spawned. The 3DS owners are waiting for some games to get excited about so we should be hearing about a lot of new titles from Nintendo's big franchises this year. With the recent release of the Pokédex 3D the latest generation all already have models generated so they could potentially release a Pokémon Snap 3DS using the 3D models that they have already put in the work completing.

Todd Snap is the man 
I think that the 3DS really is the perfect handheld for Pokémon Snap, you could shout into the mic to get the attention of the Pokémon and they could have a separate mode where all the Pokémon are generated in augmented reality. Walking around my house snapping Pokémon would blow my mind, it's like something you would imagine yourself doing when you was a kid! Really I would prefer it if they did a true sequel and just included like 100 something 1st and 2nd generation Pokémon but I think that really is wishful thinking. All I know is two games I am waiting for on the 3DS is Animal Crossing 3DS and a new Pokémon Snap game, damn I feel manly.

I could imagine someone on the subway walking around with a 3DS shouting "HEY YOU FUCKING PIKACHU, LOOK OVER HERE YOU TWAT!" while they wonder around aimlessly.

What further evidence do we need that this game will make the world a better place!
