Editor: Tim Weaver


The first issue of NGC brought with it coverage from Spaceworld 2001 and a number of newly announced games, including the very first looks at Mario Sunshine and what was to become Zelda Wind Waker. They also had more in depth news on the Japanese launch which was to come in the December issue.

There were still a couple of reviews this issue however, with two of the last N64 games being launched - Mario Party 3 and Pokémon Stadium 2, with Pokémon gaining a very respectable score of 90%. Planet Game Boy was still running strong and gave Pokémon Crystal 4 stars out of 5.

With the UK Gamecube launch still over 6 months away, the back of the mag was still dedicated to the N64, with a number of features carried over like the Directory and tips sections. A new section at the back of the mag looked at the making of Goldeneye and the team even had space for a comedy take on Big Brother titled Big Bowser and Featuring Nintendo characters
