‘Tis the season – for heightened levels of consumerism. And what better to advertise products than some slick, colorful magazine full of nice design and interesting tidbits? The Nintendo Magazine for 2022 Winter is here for just that reason, highlighting recent releases for the Japanese playerbase – though we’re lucky enough to have an official English translation.



The issue focuses mostly on Splatoon 3 and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. The anarchic trio Deep Cut gets a fun little three page interview before a look at some of the latest locker decorations, while there’s a cool spread detailing all the different types of Poké Balls, followed by a briefing on Paldea and its Pokémon.

Other games detailed include Nintendo Switch Sports and its new golf mode, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, and Bayonetta 3. Be sure to check out the magazine for yourself – it’s a really vibrant and slick showcase of the last few months’ games.
