Future Publishing and Nintendo have announced the closure of the Official Nintendo Magazine.


Issue 114, which will be in stores October 14, will be the magazine’s final issue. The website will also close on November 11. The magazine was first published in the UK in 2002 by EMAP, before switching to Future Publishing in 2006.

“Nintendo will continue to speak directly to fans via Nintendo Direct, our social media and online channels and public events. Nintendo UK and Future will continue to work closely on future projects across, CVG, Edge, Kotaku UK and Gamesmaster,” read the official statement.

MCVUK adds that current subscriptions will be automatically switched to Gamesmaster, and subscribers will also have the option to cancel before October 17.

Print is not having the best time at the moment, especially the Nintendo-focused portion. Earlier this year, Future Publishing also closed Nintendo Power, which had been around since 1988.
