games™ celebrates Wii U launch with interactive cover

The latest issue of games™ is now on sale, celebrating the launch of Wii U with a unique interactive sliding magazine cover.

The first of its kind, elements of the New Super Mario Bros. U cover can be changed by removing a background card which hides the full software line-up for the anticipated console.

“Creativity and imagination are at the heart of Nintendo’s values, so it’s a pleasure to work with a magazine that feels the same way during the run-up to the launch of Wii U,” commented James Honeywell, head of consumer marketing at Nintendo UK.

“games™’s fun and unique interactive cover is just the sort of thing to capture the innovation of New Super Mario Bros U and commemorate the excitement of Wii U’s UK launch on 30 November.”

games™ editor-in-chief of games Rick Porter adds “It’s always exciting creating something that nobody else has tried before, and I couldn’t be happier with the end result.

“The industry has been waiting a long time for a new console, and partnering with Nintendo to create a cover for games™ so creative and memorable is the ideal way to usher in the next generation of consoles.”

games™ is available to purchase at newsagents and supermarkets, or online at Digital editions can be downloaded from
