INSiGHT | MyM Magazine: Issue 53 (Review) on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Right from the front cover, MyM Magazine is getting ready for one of the biggest games of the year, with not only the coveted cover, but also a considerable feature on Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. The movie runs alongside the first chapters of the hotly anticipated upcoming Final Fantasy XV. This animated feature looks spectacular and boasts an impressive cast. MyM has landed an exclusive interview with film director Takeshi Nozue to talk about this new film, and also manages to get some words with the impressive cast, including Aaron Paul, Lena Headey, and Sean Bean.

MyM also had a chance to speak with director Tom Williams about his adaptation of Stephen King's rage zombie story, Cell. Although adaptations of King's works have been hit and miss, this latest holds a lot of promise. Cell was a superb book and was filled with moments that seemed crafted for the big screen.

It's not just the big movie studios that deserve feature articles, though, as the little guys need love, too. This month there's a feature on the low budget side of Japanese cinema. Budding indie director Eiji Uchida gives an insider's look at the truth of this side of the industry, along with talking about his new film Lowlife Love.

There are plenty of articles for the otaku out there once again. With the recent adaptation of the stellar Phoenix Wright series of games to an anime, MyM looks at other games that have made the jump over the years, from high points like the classic 1994 Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie and recent megahit Persona 4, to the old school Mario and Sonic cartoons of the '80s. With it now being just around the halfway point for the Summer anime season, MyM gives its recommendations for what to watch.

For the reviews, this month there's plenty to check out including: for games, retro RPG fans can look forward to the new throwback release from Square Enix in I Am Setsuna, Telltale's latest property gets its first episode in Batman: The Telltale Series, the craze that's bringing Pokémon back to the manic heights of its heyday, Pokémon GO, as well as a release everyone was surprised to see reach the West - the pheromone shooter, Gal Gun. On the anime front, August brings with it some fresh comedy in Punch Line and the fantastic Monthly Girls' Nozaki-Kun.

All of this, along with reviews for all the big movies - everyone needs to see Kubo and the Two Strings - comics, manga, and anime, cosplayer interviews and photography; a trip to a Hedgehog cafe in Japan; highlights from SDCC, and so much more in this latest edition of MyM Magazine, available now from all good retailers.
