n3 Nintendo Magazine

Adventure number three. I felt it’d be a good idea to celebrate the release of the GameCube (and the popularity of the Game Boy Advance) with a new print magazine about Nintendo. There was no Dutch Nintendo magazine then.

I also felt that the current magazines were too straightforward, which drove me to opt for short reviews and previews, big features, and hand-drawn covers. In the spirit of Total RPG, for whoever read that when it was around.

Together with Sigfrid at Impressive Arts, I created a dummy issue. Then I tried to get in touch with a publisher who’d be willing to pay us to produce it every month — and handle stuff like subscriptions, distribution, advertising, etc.

While I did succeed at finding someone, after four or five issues his money ran out, and after we finished issue eight, the plug was finally pulled. Issue eight never found its way onto store shelves, unfortunately. However, it is available online through Issuu.
