Big Nintendo mag news
Word from a moderator of the Official Nintendo Magazine forums is that subscribers will receive the September issue at the same time as newsstands - September 1st. The reason? Info on the cover game is being "embargoed" until that date, when the moderator promises "a BIG exclusive." Nintendo hasn't offered any inklings of what this could be, but one wonders if it's a previously announced game (say, Super Mario Galaxy) or a new title that might also be showcased at the upcoming press event on the 14th. Announcing a big game prematurely would run the risk of deflating hype.
