Future-published all-things-Pokemon magazine to include information on games, TV series, films, and trading card game.
Future Publishing today announced a deal with The Pokemon Company to launch the Official Pokemon Magazine in the United Kingdom. The first issue will go on sale March 20 for £3.99 ($6).
The magazine is described as a "one-stop shop" for all things Pokemon. It will include information on the latest Pokemon news relating to games, films, the TV series, and the trading card game. Official Pokemon Magazine will print 13 issues per year.
The Pokemon Company has been busy of late. In the past few months, the group launched an official Pokedex iOS app, as well as a Pokemon TV app that lets users watch ad-free shows and movies. In addition, Pokemon X and Y are due out for the 3DS this October.
The arrival of Official Pokemon Magazine comes during a time when gaming-focused print publications are more frequently closing than opening. PlayStation: The Official Magazine, Nintendo Power, Xbox World, and PSM3 all shut down last year, with GamePro closing its doors a year earlier.
If this come with pokemon event code/item/rare pokemon, it'll sell like hell! Even I would buy or subscribe it
Don't know how this will be able to sustain itself in the long term when even a giant like Newtype USA couldn't survive.
Only a fan of the games but will buy the first issue. May be worth something in the future, who knows. :)
@Synthia Me too. Where do I send my address Info, how do I pay for my sub, and can Danny please return to feedbackula.
@thelostkin well does Pokemon really need it. Zelda's timeline is a bunch of BS that they had to connect som how so the book to make sense of that was needed. but isn't pokemon's tl pretty straight-forward?
I thought magazines were dying over there just like in America....guess that isn't the case when it comes to Pokemon.
I honestly don't see it lasting long.
Sweet!, although weird how theirs a market enough for a stand alone Pokemon magazine yet not an Official PlayStation one?
