Players might be wondering if the New Pokemon Snap is a remake or sequel because it has similar gameplay with the N64 Pokemon Snap. In both games, players travel in an auto-driving floating pod while taking photos of Pokemon in various locations, which might make it sound like it is a remake.

However, New Pokemon Snap is a sequel and not a remake. Yes, it has similar gameplay. But, it has better graphics compared to the first Snap game, it has more Pokemon, and has a lot of new things to offer. The Nintendo Eshop also mentioned that it is a brand new game, which suits the title "New" Pokemon Snap.

We still don't have the full details of the game until Nintendo reveals more information or until the release. But, it is safe to say that the New Pokemon Snap is a sequel.
