ONM 106 out now - Layton vs. Wright celebration issue

Reviews, features and free posters to puzzle over in the new issue of Official Nintendo Magazine

If there's one game we think you should be interested in this month, it's Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright - we love it enough that much of ONM 106 is dedicated, in true courtroom style, to proving just why that's the case.

UPDATE: We've received word that some shipments of the magazine have been sent to shops late, meaning you may not be able to find a copy before next week. We're very sorry for the delay, and will keep you up to date as and when we know more.

Our first piece of evidence is a glowing review of the game, which leads a review section with full rundowns of Yoshi's New Island, Steel Diver: Sub Wars, The LEGO movie Videogame and more.

Next we have a key witness in the form of Phoenix Wright creator and lead scenario writer Shu Takumi, who takes the stand with anecdotes about voice acting, his next game and Hideki Kamiya's ego.

Then there's a presentation of evidence in our detective showdown, which could prove, once and for all, that Layton and Wright are greatest mystery solvers in Nintendo history.

And now I have to abandon this metaphor, because there's so much more besides. From a giant interview feature with the creators of the Dynasty Warriors series - explaining just why Hyrule Warriors is such a perfect crossover - to our packed previews section, which looks at Sonic Boom, Bayonetta, Monolith's X and more, we're looking ahead to the most exciting games still to come this year.

Then there's our A-Z of Smash Bros., a rundown of every minor detail you might have missed in the run-up to the year's next big franchise crossover, plus a Rewind looking back at the original Yoshi's Island, the 10 best non-Mario karting games, and our twisted take on the Layton crossovers we could see next.

Oh! And given that the game says it's Layton vs. Wright, we've got a free poster that forces you to make the decision - which side will you take?

    I'm not seeing the newest issue on Zinio.. :( Was really hoping to get it digitally.

  3. InvincibleMJ Thursday 13th Mar 2014 at 12:55

    Usually get my issue in the post the Monday or Tuesday before, haven't got it yet and the postman is just away... :?

    Mine still hasn't arrived either, and it usually gets here of a Friday.
    Who knows what's happened.

  6. shuggybarr Thursday 13th Mar 2014 at 17:21

    Are there problems with distribution this month?
    The new issue hasn't turned up in Glasgow yet

  7. TravelHobo Thursday 13th Mar 2014 at 17:58

    I see that Layton Vs. Wright got a gold award. That makes me very, very happy :D .

    Same here. Grumble grumble etc.

    There was some embargo issues over Yoshi's New Island. Hence the delay. Hope that helps :)

  10. laughingjumpman Thursday 13th Mar 2014 at 19:19

    I'm assuming it must have been sent today now the embargo is up, but yet to arrive - subscription didn't arrive today, and it's in none of the shops in Oxford.

  11. InvincibleMJ Thursday 13th Mar 2014 at 23:09

    Cool hopefully get it tomorrow or Saturday, thanks all

    OHHHHH NOOOOO

    lets not sugar coat the fact that we don't just get two separate posters with ''WHICH SIDE WILL YOU CHOOSE?!''

  13. Wiimote Friday 14th Mar 2014 at 02:44

    The new mag is available in the app store. May get it there.

  14. shuggybarr Friday 14th Mar 2014 at 08:38

    Still a no-show north of the border :(

  15. Dean Thompson Friday 14th Mar 2014 at 11:55

    Got it today.

  16. martynm Friday 14th Mar 2014 at 12:01

    Still no sign of it on Zinio.

    or in the shops. It's concerning. :(

    Same in Edinburgh.

  18. dmanning Friday 14th Mar 2014 at 18:14

    Still waiting for mine to arrive via post

  19. InvincibleMJ Sunday 16th Mar 2014 at 09:20

    Got mine yesterday, woop

  20. wghtmf Sunday 16th Mar 2014 at 17:49

    I found something rather odd in this issue. I may just be seeing things but see what you think. Turn to page 15 and look at the reflection in Mario's golf club. There appears to be an image of a creepy man dancing.

  21. LOZanges Monday 17th Mar 2014 at 18:09

    Still waiting over in North East Wales. :evil:

  22. RainbowGazelle Tuesday 18th Mar 2014 at 09:25

    Is this issue ever coming out?

  23. MatthewONM Tuesday 18th Mar 2014 at 09:47

    Hey everyone,

    We're still looking into what's going on with this. An error in the external distribution network. Hopefully be on shelves today, but I can;t say for sure.

    Thanks, Matthew

  24. CDS Tuesday 18th Mar 2014 at 17:14

    Well I had mine yesterday from subscription, so I'm guessing the retailers are waiting until Wednesday as usual to put it up.
    Shouldn't be too long now, anyway.

  25. dmanning Tuesday 18th Mar 2014 at 19:31

    I'm still waiting mine. Happened last month with another magazine - can't remember which, but was a week overdue when it arrived.

  26. WOLFENFTW Tuesday 18th Mar 2014 at 22:50

    Still not in stores where I am. Please keep us updated Matthew. Thanks

  27. Dyrk Wednesday 19th Mar 2014 at 11:53

    19th March.....just bought Issue 106....one week late, apparently!
    I've been a reader since Issue 1.....don't remember the mag being late before!
    Great magazine, though! Thanks!

  28. dmanning Thursday 20th Mar 2014 at 18:36

    Still waiting for my subscription to arrive :(

  29. myntifresh Thursday 20th Mar 2014 at 18:55

    Subscriber here and still haven't received my copy either :(

    Any news?

  30. ImoCup Saturday 22nd Mar 2014 at 12:57
