N-Europe (or known for short simply as "N-E") facilitates
Nintendonews, reviews and information from a European Nintendo-fanbase perspective. It is the latest named incarnation of a series of websites run by roughly the same staff, previously named to reflect the current Nintendo home console of the time: N64 Europe, Cube-Europe, and then Revo-Europe in anticipation of the Wii's release.
Despite being primarily a
Nintendosite for Europe, N-Europe reports on all Nintendo developments worldwide, including news on the GameCube and Nintendo DS, major stories about the Game Boy Advancehandhelds as well as the Wii. The site is currently owned and hosted by the Advanced Media Network.
The website began life in
1998as a small site created by Tim Symons and Gerben Stavast which became N64 Europe. When Nintendo announced the GameCube in 2001, the pair decided to rename and relaunch as Cube-Europe. The site was one of the first to break news of Nintendo's European launch plans for the GameCube, and over the years grew in status.
2002, co-owner Gerben decided to leave, while Tim left the site too in September 2005 to take a position at Nintendo Europe in Germany. On September 16, 2005, near-simultaneous with the unveiling of the unique Wii (then still codenamed Nintendo Revolution) controller by Nintendo president Satoru Iwatain Japan during his Tokyo Games Show address, Cube-Europe was re-launched as Revo-Europe, complete with new forums.
August 27 2006, the site rebranded a final time to become N-Europe in order to avoid further name changes to reflect each console generation. The name also conveys the website's coverage of all Nintendo news, not just relating to a specific console.
December 11 2007, the site is currently overseen by Tom "Tphi" Phillips, along with a large staff who provide news, previews and reviews, articles and comics about gaming in general and a team of mods and admins who police the forums.
The site is hosted by the
Advanced Media Network, along with other websites such as Jeux-France.
