“Speaking of the future, you may want to mark Wednesday 16 June in your diary. We’ll be revealing world exclusive details on a top secret new game in the next issue of ONM. We had to make sure we cover this new game which is why ONM 56 and 57 are both being released on a Wednesday rather than a Friday as usual.” – Official Nintendo Magazine

Could this possibly be related to a Nintendo game that will be at E3? You may remember that in 2008, the magazine teased Animal Crossing: City Folk before it was announced and featured the title in an issue following the Big N’s conference.
