Tsushin appears to translate as communication. Does that mean the English title could be Game Boy Informer ?

Well the Link Cable is referred to as the Tsushin Play-Cable / Interactive Play-Cable

It could be whatever you want so long as it's close - perfect direct translation is generally a myth.  If I had to translate it, I'd call it Game Boy News.  Just as Famitsu is short for Famicom Tsuushin, or Famicom News.

I'm not sure why this comment just got posted even though it was written two months ago, but in response I'll just reiterate that many words can't be directly translated one-to-one.

Here's the dictionary meaningS of tsuushin:

Correspondence, communication, transmission, news, signal, telecommunications

So again, I'd go with "news" for the mag title, whereas the link cable would be something more along the lines of "transmission"
