Mathers joins the mag as deputy editor, having previously been editor at Imagine’s flagship title GamesTM, as well as X360 and nRevolution.
“These changes are fantastic news for readers of Official Nintendo Magazine,” said Future group publisher Mia Walter. “I’m delighted to welcome Lee to the publishing team. His new position will see him continue his close working relationship with Nintendo, as we work hard to ensure that Future’s newest official publishing partnership continues to go from strength to strength.”
“Chandra played an essential supportive role to Lee throughout the launch and first year of the title and was the clear choice to continue Official Nintendo Magazine’s development as Editor. I’m also excited that Martin has chosen to further his career at Future, and will be the perfect addition to our team. His editorial experience will help to develop our offering, and enables us to build the strongest possible team for the Official title.”
