I cannot fathom why they keep using the baffling, disastrous and confusing "New" prefix for things.
New Super Mario Bros, for example. And the worst offender: New 3DS.
How hard was it to just call it Pokemon Snap 2? Or Pokemon Snap Switch? What happens when they release "Pokemon Snap 3" for the next console, etc etc the list of problems continues? It's just flabbergasting. They need to fire the everyone in Marketing who thinks "New ________" is a good way to name sequels and upgrades. It's simply not.
Criticism of the name aside, I'm extremely hyped for this game and it gives me shivers to think about what it would be like for the main series to look more like Pokemon Snap. *swoons*
Oh, do I ever agree with you about the "New" prefix, as it doesn't really add anything, and it will be outdated in a few years, invalidating the "New".
I realize that the prefix is supposed to indicate an evolution in a series. It would have been weird for there to be Mario 1-8 all being named Super Mario Bros. 1, Super Mario Bros. 2, etc, but it doesn't really fit with something that hasn't had multiple entries (ie, 3DS, Pokemon Snap).
Still hyped for New Pokemon Snap tho
This too tho.
