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!



Can you believe we've been making Nintendo Force Magazine for a full 10 years now!? We began with Issue #1 in January 2013, and our next issue is heading your way in January 2023. So it's of course going to be a 10-year anniversary celebration!

And it also just so happens that another new Fire Emblem game is launching at the perfect time. Issue #1 had Fire Emblem Awakening on its front cover, and now Fire Emblem Engage will kick off our next decade! It's serendipity!

It's a great big world out there, and more and more we're getting great big worlds inside video games too! The Pokémon series has been making steady progress toward embracing open-world exploration in its mainline games, and they'll finally cross that threshold with the release of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet in November. And, at the same time, Sonic the Hedgehog is stepping into the same territory with his new game, Sonic Frontiers! So we've made an issue that focuses on the open-world style of games. It's NF Issue #62: Wide Open Spaces!In order to get on the first mailing list for this issue, you needed to be signed up as a patron here before Monday, October 24, 2022 at 4:25 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.






It’s almost time to refill your ink blasters, because Splatoon 3 is about to land on the Switch in September! We’ll take a closer look at that highly anticipated threequel, as well as give you a refresher on Bayonetta 3 and reviews of three other “3” games: River City Saga: Three Kingdoms, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes and Xenoblade Chronicles 3. If NF #61 were a basketball shot, it’d be a three-pointer for sure! But don’t worry about any non-3s on the horizon – we’ll be sure to cover them too. I mean two! I mean three! (Oh dear, we’re in trouble.)

In order to get on the first mailing list for this issue, you needed to be signed up as a patron here before Monday, August 22, 2022 at 3:33 p.m. Eastern time.

Our milestone 60th issue is upon us! For this edition of NF, we'll be hitting the streets – and hitting the faces of any punks who happen to be prowling around on those streets! It's a celebration of the beat-'em-up genre timed to support the upcoming launch of WayForward's new River City Girls 2.

We'll travel back to River City to get up to speed on that series, double-down with other brawlers like Double Dragon, echo our efforts from last year's Turtle Power issue with new coverage of Shredder's Revenge and The Cowabunga Collection and much, much more! It'll be so much fun, it's sure to get your blood boiling!

Goals
4,224 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!
