UK publisher closes magazine ahead of Wii U launch

Future Publishing has closed its independent Nintendo magazine, Nintendo Gamer.

"After careful consideration we've taken the decision to close Nintendo Gamer magazine," publisher Lee Nutter told Future Publishing's CVG.

"However, with Future's ongoing strategy to drive digital growth across its international, digitally-focussed brand business, the website, will continue as excitement builds ahead of Nintendo's Wii U launch."

The magazine launched in 2006, and its total average net circulation for 2011 was 7,745.

Future will continue to publish its licensed Nintendo publication, Official Nintendo Magazine.

It's pretty amazing that they've been able to sustain rest least 3 separate Nintendo specific magazines in recent years anyway.

Yea Nintendo's magazine coverage seems to be going backwards as the launch get's nearer. First Nintendo Power on the other side of the pond and now this. Seems more than a little odd to me.
