About The Nintendo Force

Hey there, Force fans! After wildly successful Kickstarter campaigns in 2014 and 2015, the Nintendo Force made the leap here to Patreon in 2016! This is the place where fans have the chance to sign up and get new, Nintendo-focused magazines coming to your mailbox (or email inbox). It's time to join the Force of Nintendo fans! Subscribe to NF Magazine by becoming a patron on this page!


Here's some background info for you. Back in December 2012, Nintendo Power Magazine shipped its final issue. That got a lot of long-time Nintendo fans upset, as NP had been the one consistent and reliable print magazine covering Nintendo video games ever since the '80s. Some of us had been subscribers for over two decades, and there were still tens of thousands of active subscribers getting new issues delivered in the mail up until that final issue.

Well, we didn't want to see that legacy die. So we assembled a dream team of the most well-known Nintendo journalists from around the world and launched a new magazine four years ago! The first issue went on sale on January 11, 2013, exactly one month after Nintendo Power ended.

NF Magazine is not Nintendo Power, but we're carrying its torch forward into the future by paying homage to the best parts of NP's past while forging a new identity with an all-new team. So join the Force! Subscribe to NF Magazine by becoming a patron here on Patreon, and get all-new Nintendo magazines coming to your mailbox, your email inbox or directly to your digital reading device of choice!

(Note for adults: Being an adult stinks when it comes to checking your mail. Nothing but bills, ads and piles of unsolicited coupons you'll never use in there. But for just a few bucks invested here, checking your mailbox can become an exciting, nostalgic experience once again! NF isn't just a magazine – it's an adult life morale booster.)



This page isn't like other Patreon pages! Most Patreon creators charge your credit card every month. We don't do that. Here, you'll only see a charge pop up after we release a new issue – which happens every two months. We're bi-monthly. Six new issues per year, if you want to think of it that way! So become an NF patron with confidence!



We're breaking free of our regular bi-monthly schedule for just the second time ever in order to honor October 2021 with its own standalone edition, starring Metroid Dread! Join us as we step back into Samus' shoes (boots?) and once again descend into alien darkness.

Cowabunga, dudes! Work is now complete on the most radical NF issue yet, as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are stepping out of the shadows and into the spotlight for NF #54. Get ready for a full Timeline of the TMNT, totally bodacious previews and reviews and even a truly surprisingly Interview guest: Kevin Eastman, the original co-creator of the TMNT!In order to get on the first mailing list for this issue, you needed to be signed up as a patron here before Monday, June 21, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time. If you signed up after that, don't worry! You can still get a copy by placing an order for one through the website store at NFMagazine.com.






Get ready to take to the skies once again! The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is finally getting its long-rumored HD re-release on the Switch in July, so our July/August issue is placing that highest-flying of Zelda adventures front-and-center. As one of the most divisive Zelda games ever published, we'll use the occasion of its relaunch as an opportunity to dive into that divide. What did this game actually doing poorly? What did it do well? It'll be a look at the Highest Highs and Lowest Lows of a game that's neither a masterpiece nor a true piece of garbage -- it just rises and falls to those two extremes sometimes.

NF #52 is in the books, and it puts the focus on photography! With New Pokémon Snap finally letting us go on a virtual photo safari in the Pokémon world again, we've celebrated the intersection of video games and photography on a grand scale. And we get you prepared to snap the best shots of wild Pokémon possible!

Goals
4,360 of 4,500 patrons
Let's shoot for the next milestone together! If we surpass 4500 patrons, we'll add an extra wall poster to not one, but two upcoming issues, and we'll let our patrons choose what both of them will be! Do you want more official artwork? More original works from our NF artists? A full set of pixel-perfect maps depicting the entire range of mountains from 1985's Ice Climber? All options will be on the table, and the patrons will decide!
