MSX・FAN was a Japanese magazine, published by Tokuma Shoten Intermedia from March 1987 until August 1995. Originally monthly, but from March 1993 it changed to bi-monthly. It was an offspring of Technopolis the general PC magazine and Program Pochette the game dump list published by the same company.

They also included a disk magazine, starting with the October 1991 edition. The disk magazine was not sold separately.

Some background information can be found in Japanese, on WikiPedia or the MSX・FAN Wiki. The details of each disk magazine are on MSX・FAN スーパー 付録 ディスク データベース by et_levin (MSX FAN super supplement disk database by et_levin).
