Beginning with this issue, editorial policy shifted them magazine's focus towards appealing to Nintendo's core audience of young children. The way the magazine's title was officially written was changed from "電撃GAME CUBE" to "デンゲキギームキューブ," de-emphasizing the Japanese kanji and eliminating the roman alphabet letters that were too difficult for their intended audience to be able to read.
Additionally, to further appeal to children, character goods began to be regularly packed in with each issue. For example, this issue came packaged with:
· Mario Kart Double Dash !! Fastest Guide
· Pokemon clear binder
· Pokemon Mini Notebook
· Pokemon mini stickers
· Pokemon Paper Figure
