So Future ditches Nintendo Gamer & launches a Pokemon magazine. Hhmm...

Quote :
CVG publisher Future is to launch Official Pokémon Magazine in the UK.

Billed as a one-stop shop for everything Pokémon, it will be packed with all the latest information on the franchise, from the video games to the TV series, films and trading card game.

Also featuring activities and competitions, Official Pokémon Magazine will have a print frequency of 13 issues per year.

Each issue will come with a Pokémon-themed cover mounted gift, with the first set to go on sale on March 20 priced at £3.99. Subscribe to the magazine now to get the first three issues delivered to your door for just £5.

Official Pokémon Magazine will be edited by Future's editor in chief of Nintendo projects, Chandra Nair.

Lee Nutter, group publisher for Future's Entertainment Group, said: "Pokémon has never been bigger and more relevant than it is today and the magazine will serve as the voice for its UK audience."

Not only is it official, it's edited by my least favourite Nintendo journalist of the moment. The thought that they got rid of Nintendo Gamer for this makes me rage inwardly.

I guess it's to be a rival to Pocket World, which has been out for much much longer and already has an established fanbase.

It's an Oddish decision, I'll give them that.

I expect this to go the way of the last OPM (back in the NOM days!). Namely, two issues and then dead.

Seriously wondering how they could decide NGamer's not good enough but justify this.

It's probably paid for, like all the other official mags.

There are 649 of the buggers. Not to mention TV shows, new Pokemon games coming out, old Pokemon games that the intended market won't have played... It won't be a hard write-up, just a lazy one.

They could serialise the manga- that'd ensure an amount of repeat sales.

Or you could just order the new print volumes of the manga for like £3 each on Amazon.... >_>

I did not know they were that cheap! Well, there you go. Still, it's definitely an incentive if they do that. But it's highly unlikely they will.

So, it seems there's details out about this now. And just....wow. Just wow.

It's a mere 34 pages, even then filled with filler, purely aimed at kids and generally it sounds a terrible read. And how much is it to buy again? £4. Shameful.

If only even such little effort were being focused on NGamer still instead by future.

Was Pocket World previously called Pokémon World? Or have I imagined that title ever since the magazine came into being?

As for the Future effort: *snort of derision*

Future's actions as of late have affected the relationship between us. It has Future launching new Pokemon Magazine... Tauros apart.

For real though, it's nothing more than a lazy cash grab for Future.
