Game Freak magazine was a series of video game and strategy related magazines by Satoshi Tajiri and Ken Sugimori, released with Satoshi Tajiri writing the text and Ken Sugimori illustrating it. Its first issue was published in 1983 by Taji Corporation (the predecessor to Game Freak as a company).

Game Freak was also a pen name of Satoshi Tajiri.[1]

Xevious 1000 Man-Ten e no Kaihou

Xevious 1000 Man-Ten e no Kaihou (Japanese: ゼビウス1000万点への解法), "How to Score 10 Million Points in Xevious" was an early Japanese game strategy guide for Xevious, written by an expert player Yasuhiro Oomori (大堀康祐) (pseudonym: うる星あんず, Urusei Anzu) with the help of Nakagane Naohiko (中金直彦) in 1983.[2]

After Satoshi Tajiri/Game Freak were asked to publish it together, they advertised it in Supersoft Magazine (スーパーソフトマガジン); a supplement to Mycom BASIC Magazine (マイコンベーシックマガジン). This guide was infamous for exposing Namco source material not intended to be known by the public; by comparison Satoshi Tajiri's feature on Xevious did not have this information.[3]

Game Freak have been mentioned as having reprinted their own version of this book, but details whether they did as opposed to just advertising it are unclear.
