Official Nintendo Magazine is being shut down

Sad times

Official Nintendo Magazine is ceasing operations, Future and Nintendo UK confirmed today.

The publication’s next issue will be its last and will book-end a 12-year run when it hits stands next week, October 14. The website will subsequently shutter on November 11.

The announcement follows the closure of Nintendo Power and Future’s unofficial Nintendo UK magazine in 2012. Nintendo hopes to stay in touch with consumers via Nintendo Direct presentations and other online channels moving forward.
