It's over and out for the Nintendo Official Magazine by Emap Active in the United Kingdom...
Luckily for our readers from the United Kingdom, that Future will take over from Emap Active. Nintendo UK has today announced a new deal with Future to produce its Nintendo Official Magazine in the UK. The contract moves to Future from Emap Active who had produced the title for the previous twelve years. The first issue of the new Nintendo Official Magazine will go on sale from February 2006 with a new premium look, feel and new editorial team.
Dawn Paine, Marketing Director, Nintendo UK, said: "As Nintendo continues to revolutionise the world of gaming, we felt it was time to re-evaluate Nintendo Official Magazine and see what other publishers had to offer. We are very pleased to have Future on board with us. Their experience in the magazine industry, particularly in the video games sector, is undoubtedly a great benefit. Emap Active has done a fantastic job over the last twelve years and we wish them every success in the future."
Robert Price, Managing Director, Future said: "Future has a long tradition of publishing in the Nintendo market and after over a decade covering Nintendo products we're excited to finally seal an Official partnership.
