Spirit Hunters Inc features in final Nintendo Gamer magazine

We were really saddened to hear that the UK’s Nintendo Gamer magazine was to print its final issue this month. The closure of this publication, as well as the impending shutdown of Nintendo Power magazine in the US, marks the end of an era in Nintendo-based print coverage. Both magazines have been stalwarts of the Nintendo scene for years and both will be sadly missed by Nintendo fans everywhere.

When were were in the UK recently we visited quite a few magazines to showcase Spirit Hunters Inc and escapeVektor. One of the mags we went to see was Nintendo Gamer and shortly after our visit we heard the sad news about the publication. Given the long lead time required to feature in a magazine we figured we wouldn’t have a chance of appearing in any more issues, so imagine our surprise when a friend in the UK told us Spirit Hunters Inc had a double page feature!

We’re absolutely honoured and delighted to feature in this special final issue of Nintendo Gamer magazine. Many thanks to our contact there, Editor Nick Ellis, for squeezing us in. We wish Nick, the rest of the Nintendo Gamer team, and everyone who will be finishing up at Nintendo Power magazine, the best of luck in their future careers.

Check out the Spirit Hunters Inc feature below, including some of the great concept art drawn by our intern Eloise. You’ll be able to see more of this concept art on our Spirit Hunters Inc website in the coming weeks. We would like to add that we have spent a lot of time ensuring that the graphics and polish in the game are the best they can be for the power and age of the Nintendo DSi.
