Future NOM Producer

For ten years Emap Active has been the publisher of Nintendo Official Magazine (NOM) in the United Kingdom.Emap Active will no longer be producing the magazine as Nintendo has announced a deal with Future who will produce the magazine instead.

Dawn Paine, Marketing Director of Nintendo UK, has this to say, “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.

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,” said Robert Price, Managing Director of Future.

We can expect the first issue of the new NOM in February 2006. The reformed magazine will feature a new look and a new editorial team.
