UK magazine Retro Gamer is no stranger to amazing cover artwork, and regularly offers an exclusive "subscriber" cover each month which has different imagery to the one which is sold in newsagents.
However, the magazine is doing something a little different this month; issue 217 will offer eight (count 'em) different cover options, all of which are based on a famous Capcom property.
These include Final Fight, Strider, Ghosts 'n Goblins, Captain Commando, 1942, Forgotten Worlds and Street Fighter II.
If you fancy getting in on the action, head over to Magazines Direct or pop to your local newsagents (lockdown permitting, of course).
I was pretty chuffed when my Final Fight sub cover turned up yesterday! 😉👍
@fox_mattcloud That Final Fight art is incredible!
My copy arrived today. I was disappointed to get the Final Fight cover... was hoping for Ghosts n' Goblins or Forgotten Worlds. 😊 But I guess it's the sub exclusive. Fantastic mag... can't recommend it enough!
@Ooyah If you want to sell me that copy, I won't complain!
Does anyone know if retro magazine subscriptions ship to US?
Another awesome cover courtesy of retro gamer. And yes, that FF cover rocks it!
With your love of retro gaming, I thought you'd have a subscription or three! 😆
I have an archive e-subscription to Retro Gamer and highly recommend the magazine to old-school fans. Great in-depth articles, high quality lay-outs, and they do an overall great job of helping to keep the classics alive!
Mine arrived today not even looked yet. Wonder which cover I have!
@nymbosox Yes you can subscribe to the magazine in the U.S and also they sell the magazine in Barnes and Noble. I hope this helps...
Really is a rather good print magazine, and one of the very few quality ones left on store shelves these days.
Anyone got clear pics of all 8 covers?
Waiting for my subscription cover, hopefully Ghosts & Goblins
@Peteykins Funny enough, people do collect magazines, I still hang onto a lot of my old mags though they're mostly nuts or guitar magazines not got any of my old gaming mags
