Nintendo Fans Online UK Interviews Pure Nintendo about its Magazine and Kickstarter

For Immediate Release


Justin Sharp

Monday, October 8 th 2012 - Pure Nintendo had the great privilege of speaking with Josh at about Pure Nintendo Magazine and its Kickstarter campaign.  In the interview, Editor-in-Chief Justin Sharp gives details on the development of the magazine as well as information on where the magazine is going in the future once the Kickstarter campaign has completed.  

"We're very excited to be partnering with Nintendo fan sites all across the globe as we aim to deliver a magazine that's all Nintendo all the time," said Sharp.  "This interview is one of the many steps toward promoting Pure Nintendo Magazine in a big way as we go into the final 48 hours of our Kickstarter campaign."

Pure Nintendo has released this excerpt of the interview:

NFO: Why did you decide that it was time to publish the magazine in print form? Did you feel that there was a gap in the market, after the loss of Nintendo Gamer?

PN: "Well, as I mentioned above, we had released Issue 5 in print well before the announcement of Nintendo Power and Nintendo Gamer closing down.  It was always the plan to test the waters with the first few issues of the magazine, provide them for free on our website, and then eventually develop a print version that we could setup subscriptions for in the future.

We were all really bummed about Nintendo Power and then Nintendo Gamer closing down but we felt it was a great opportunity for a fan-run Nintendo magazine to be developed. We brought more writers on board and made a plan to build the magazine and make it successful for Nintendo fans in the future.

Every new Nintendo fan should be able to have the experience of growing up with a Nintendo magazine and hopefully we can provide that going forward."
