  5. Continue

    "CONTINUE" was a game magazine published by Ota Publishing from 2001 to 2010. It was launched on March 15, 2001 and initially was a quarterly but from vol.8 (published February 15, 2003) it became bimonthly (published on even months). Its editorial policy was somewhat unique among other game magazines in that rather than focusing on fluff previews promoting upcoming games, it focused more on articles and columns relating to games and the gaming industry. Lengthy interviews with game industry officials and creators were a regular feature, and it often prominently featured positive articles on games from overseas, gaining particular notoriety by its extensive coverage of both GTAIII and Vice City (which received its "game of the year" award) before either game was even licensed to be released in Japan. This magazine is printed in A5 size
