Times are changin'
The video gaming print media is about to lose another magazine, as Future Publishing has announced Nintendo Gamer will cease to be. The independent UK-based mag has been around in various guises since 1992, originally sporting the name "Super Play". The last issue goes on sale next week (number 80), it promises to be a nostalgic look over the magazine's 20 year history.
"After careful consideration we've taken the decision to close Nintendo Gamer magazine. However, with Future's ongoing strategy to drive digital growth across its international, digitally-focused brand business, the website will continue as excitement builds ahead of Nintendo's Wii U launch." - Nintendo Gamer's publisher, Lee Nutter.
Nintendo Power also closed its doors in the US recently, so it looks like gaming print is struggling at the moment. Future Publishing will continue to release Official Nintendo Magazine though, for the time being at least.
