So, as you saw from the previous post, I GOT MY MAGAZINE!! Ahh I’m so happy
It was 2nd-hand but in perfect condition, and I felt oh-so-bad for the previous owner about semi-destroying it in order to remove the page with the fish and bugs to scan. (It wasn’t a removeable lift-out and the printing went right into the binding!)
The magazine is called Nintendo Dream, or Nindori for short (Nintendo Doriimu). It covers a range of games for Nintendo consoles, and includes some fanart and comics. At the start of this issue there is a little feature for New Leaf, covering some things on customising your home, items, the Happy Home neighbourhood and dream villages. (Rollover the images to view any descriptions.)
Thennn, in the middle of the magazine is the good stuff! The few pages in the middle are printed on stiffer paper, and include the Fish and Insects spreads. The editors chose to put the fish and bugs on two sides of the same page, so if anyone displayed it, they would only see one group at a time…
There’s also a mini 4-page newspaper 😛 The name down the top right of the front page says, “Nindori Monthly Publication: ANIMAL FOREST NEWS”. Then throughout it is a little guide for the events of the month, including Xmas and New Year’s.
For some reason, there is a TV guide on page 3 (does it change throughout the year?), and on the last page is some snowman fun 😛 Finally, throughout the “newspaper” are ads for things in-game, which is cool 😀
(eg. “✨✧ Gracie Grace Winter Collection: Stylish Gorgeous Series release ✧✨✧”)
By the way, although this is the “February 2013 issue”, it came out on December 21st.
Lastly, there is an imitation brochure (there’s a dotted line for you to cut it out) for “The Southern Island: Round trip 1,000 Bells. Maximum 4 people.” In it is all you need to know (I’m assuming :P) about activities on the island Kapp’n can take you to, laid out in travel-brochure style.
