ETC Goodbye NOM

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. We will deliver a magazine that reflects the breadth, fun and quality of Nintendo games and the audience who play them."

  • Depressing! It's not NOM without Tim Street, Mike J and the other guys! They make it funny, and.. stuff! gah! Oh well, maybe it'll be good. Still though, I can't imagine NOM without them.

  • NOM sucked ass long ago; Dave McComb ruined the mag and turned it into a pokecentric affair. I look forward to picking this up.

  • The new Nintendo power (NOA) rocks. So, so far change is good.

  • Future just buyed The Games Machine in Italy. They are a bad publishing company, watching only the profit at all costs. In 2002 there was an Official Nintendo Magazine in Italy and it was fantastic magazine. Future go to Nintendo, pay them and gain the officiality . Now the Nintendo official magazine they publish is all a mess, and untrustful to the gamers.

  • I like the new Nintendo Power, but the magazine in USA is published by Nintendo, not Future.

  • FUTURE?! I have had many mags made by those guys and they are so BORING. Looks like my Subscription could be getting cancelled...UNLESS they make a good job of it...and I so hope they do...
