Future Publishing has announced the closure of Official Nintendo Magazine and its attendant website, with the last issue, the 114th, to go on sale this month. The website will be shut down on November 11.
The magazine's subscribers will have their subscriptions transferred automatically to Gamesmaster magazine if they're not cancelled before October 17. Future has promised to try and find ONM staff jobs elsewhere in the company, insisting that the closure is not part of the recent wave of redundancies which have struck the publisher.
"The last issue of Official Nintendo Magazine, which launched in the UK in 2002, will be in stores on 14th October," reads a statement on the ONM website. "Throughout its tenure, Official Nintendo Magazine has continued to bring fans, news, interviews, previews and reviews on both new and retro Nintendo hardware and software.
"Nintendo will continue to speak directly to fans via Nintendo Direct, our social media and online channels and public events.
"Nintendo UK and Future will continue to work closely on future projects across Gamesradar.com, CVG, Edge, Kotaku UK and Gamesmaster."
