ONM Remembered – #430

“Oi! Newsy I’ve got no MULTI RACING CHAMPIONSHIP DRIVER’S GUIDE”


from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 61 (October 1997)

I think this was the second ever issue of ONM I picked up all those years ago. The only way to follow up a sporty Mario giving you a well-needed thumbs-up, is having a giant cheery chimp who’s positively thrilled at his aerial tour of windmill country. Couldn’t ask for a more eye-catching over, I’ll tell you what.

… I’ve also completely ruined this image for myself because I can’t stop interpreting Diddy Kong’s mono-eye as a giant tooth (with eyeball tats), wearing his snout as part of an elaborate disguise. I’m not sure what to do with this information, to be honest. My day was quite fine until now.
