Raw scans can be found on MEGA via the links on the right.

A Japanese gaming magazine aimed at little kids and focused on Nintendo consoles (natch). If you're looking for reviews or insight, this ain't the place to find it; instead there's lots of excitable Pokémon coverage, shilling licensed games, and stacks of pack-in guidebooks.
That's all very well and boring, but what's exciting is its manga section! Kid-friendly serialised escapades based off then-current Nintendo DS and Wii games; they're probably not that exciting, but a majority of them have never been reprinted anywhere else, so that's a novelty in itself, innit.

The magazine ran from April 2006 to April 2012, after which it rebranded itself as Dengeki Nintendo for KIDS (デンゲキニンテンドー for KIDS), cutting most of its full-page manga (though some continued as 4-koma, like Sonic and Shin-Chan). On June 2013 it rebranded again as just Dengeki Nintendo (電撃Nintendo), presenting itself as a more mature magazine and dropping the manga section entirely, the bastards.

The list of manga below is cross-referenced from Wikipedia and the contents pages available on ASCII Media Works' website; they only start from September 2008 onwards, and the issues from June 2009 to July 2010 don't list the manga in their index, so I just have to extrapolate from the next issue previews.

GO! Ketsu Wario

GOケツワリオ

By Akira Yamanaka (山中あきら), ran from June 2007 until August 2011.
Featuring the treasure-hunting exploits of Wario and company; initially based off Wario: Master of Disguise, then changed focus to Wario Land: The Shake Dimension in late 2008 (September 2008, I think?) for the remainder of its run.
As far as I can tell, the name is a pun on "koketsu" (虎穴), meaning "dangerous place" and often used in the Japanese phrasing of "nothing ventured, nothing gained." "Go" and"ketsu" stand for "five" and "arse" respectively.

January 2011

Wario, Merfle and a Bandinero cross a tunnel of spikes.

March 2011

Wario drags a Bandinero into the Subwarine to hunt a message in a bottle.

Sonic the Hedgehog

ソニック・ザ・ヘッジホッグ

By Makoto Hirono (広のまこと), ran from September 2008 to April 2012, but continued in 4-koma format from May 2012 to May 2013.
A lighthearted adventure series based off then-current Sonic games, changing focus nearly every year. According to Wikipedia, games covered in story arcs include:

  • Sonic Unleashed (September 2008 to March 2009)
  • Sonic & The Black Knight (April to August 2009)
  • Sonic Chronicles (September 2009 to September 2010)
  • Sonic Colors (October 2010 to September 2011)
  • Sonic Generations (October 2011 to 2012)

March 2011

Sonic Colors: An Egg Pawn gives Sonic some trouble, though it's no match for a rocket-drill combo.

Hoshi no Kirby: Pupupu Hero

星のカービィプププヒーロー

By Kei Aoki (あおきけい) and Maru Mika (みかまる), ran from January 2009 to April 2013, but resumed in Dengeki Bazooka!! (デンゲキバズーカ!!) under the title of Hoshi no Kirby: Ultra Super Pupupu Hero (星のカービィ ウルトラスーパープププヒーロー) from December 2014 to April 2016.
Fluffy antics starring the Kirby gang, probably based off the then-current games for all I know.

Two collected editions were included as pack-ins with issues of Dengeki Nintendo for KIDS:
The first volume (containing 26 episodes spanning January 2009 to February 2011) was bundled with the April 2013 issue.
The second volume (containing 27 episodes spanning March 2011 to May 2013) was bundled with the May 2013 issue.
The Ultra Super Pupupu Hero series has not been reprinted as of this writing, but the authors' Twitter feed reported on a vote around June 2017 to get a collected edition made.

The Masked Knight fansite has scans and translations of a fair few stories; the ones featuring Meta Knight, at least.

March 2011

It's an icy gourmet team race between Kirby and Mr. Frosty versus Dedede, Lololo and Lalala!
