Speculation Friday: How to Reinvigorate Pokemon Snap

A long time ago, many of us played an N64 game called Pokemon Snap. The premise of the game was simple: take pictures of wild Pokemon in their natural habitat. The better your photo, the more points you received and the game was full of so many secrets that I’d bet you could still learn …

So in the latest Nintendo Direct, Mr. Satoru Iwata introduced something that I never would have expected: a crazy crossover between Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem.
