Future Publishing’s Nintendo Gamer has closed. The final issue – Issue 80 – went on sale today, ending a history of more than 20 years of independent Nintendo magazine coverage from Future.

The first issue of the magazine, published in October 1992, was titled Super Play. In the twenty years that followed the magazine evolved with the release of each new Nintendo system relaunching as N64 Magazine, NGC, N-Gamer and finally Nintendo Gamer.

The final issue is a special tribute issue, containing a feature focusing on every cover and iteration of the magazine from that first issue of Super Play all the way up to 2012.

Nintendo-Gamer.net will continue to provide Nintendo news, reviews and features.

“After careful consideration we’ve taken the decision to close Nintendo Gamer magazine,” said Nintendo Gamer publisher Lee Nutter. “However, with Future’s ongoing strategy to drive digital growth across its international, digitally-focussed brand business, the website, Nintendo-Gamer.net will continue as excitement builds ahead of Nintendo’s Wii U launch.”
