Remember Nintendo Magazine System?

Comment on site articles.

Here's the first cover of the first ever official Nintendo magazine

Do you remember Nintendo Magazine System? Truth be told, I don't. Until this landed on my desk a few months ago, I thought that there was NOM and then there was ONM and that was that. Turns out there was an official Nintendo magazine before Nintendo Official Magazine and it was the brilliantly titled Nintendo Magazine System.

I have that issue at home. If I remember correctly it came with a free gift of a keyring which was a clock in the same of a GameBoy.

Remember Nintendo Magazine System?

I remember it being shown in an old issue of NOM... mainly due to Mel Gibson's hair!

With Nintendo Power stopping in America , it's good to see how far the official mag here has come and hopefully continues :)

Remember Nintendo Magazine System?

Postby MartinIsAwesome » 21 Jan 2013, 18:42

Alas, in those days I was strictly a SEGA Boy who read Sonic The Comic (and a fine publication it was too), so I wouldn't have had a reason to pick this up. I didn't start reading a Nintendo mag until after getting my Nintendo 64 by which point NMS had already changed it's name to simply "Nintendo Magazine" (although, funnily enough they referred to themselves as "ONM" too), with Issue 62 in November. What was on the cover? Why, Duke Nukem of course! Duke Nukem 64 got a score of 91%. Elsewhere inside it features the worlds first screenshots of "Hey You, Pikachu!", some very early Ocarina of Time screenshots, a review of Lylat Wars which scored 93%, and some fan-art of Mario in Mario Kart driving over a "Greystation". Mature bunch weren't we?

I still have a huge collection of almost every issue since (I'm only missing #63) right up to NOM's final issue (#162, February 2006). I love flicking through the older issues which include screenshots of games still in development and how different they ended up being.

I have heard of this publication, but never got one. I was born in 1994 so that's why. I do have a Mario Kart DS covered NOM issue though so close enough!

Accounting for inflation that number rises to £3.58 so it's not much of an increase really!

I have the issue still in my drawer on desk i'm typing on. think i scanned some pages in when chris was doing his desk clearout competition cos i also scanned in pages of an old donkey kong comic i had too.
I've been trying to look for one of the TIMEBOY keyrings you got free with the mag too. that was awesome. it was a small keyring in shape of the original gameboy with just a simple lcd watch on it. was gutted when i lost it :(

Your possibly old enough to remember 'GO!' that came with CVG too? when they did their infamous Gameboy version of Mario Kart and made their own 6 button attachment thing. it was a great April Fools joke back in the day when evryone didnt know everything because of the internet. Also Super Play was a great little magazine as was TOTAL! i had a big clearout several years ago of all my old gaming mags, kept all my old nms/onm but got a decent fortune for the others :D

'lastability' is laughable,considering Mario Kart is still around.
