Nintendo Power is Ceasing Publication

I’ve never really read it (more of a PlayStation master race represent person myself), but it’s sad to see another gaming magazine pass into history – especially the only one I can think of off the top of my head which focuses on Nintendo platforms.

You’ll be missed, Nintendo Power.

What’s sad to me is that this was not only the longest-running gaming magazine to date (24 years as of now), but a chunk of my childhood.

Really, I loved and still do love Nintendo Power. It’s a pretty fun magazine to this day. Seeing it go depresses me greatly.

B-but I loved Nintendo Power…Goodbye, my dear magazine. I shall miss you dearly. I’m going to find all my old copies and treasure them forever.

So is this like the official Nintendo magazine for America? If so, are they getting rid of the English version? (also made by future) I’m scared now.

This is the official North American magazine, yeah. Not sure about the english version, but I’m inclined to say yes, they are.

Sadly, Nintendo’s tip and trick magazine has been overeshadowed by the internet.
R.I.P Nintendo Power

Awww. I’ve always been a huge Nintendo fangirl, and although I’ve never read more than a few issues of it, I recognize its impact upon Nintendo, and really, the entire game world itself.

It will be missed.

Just another sign of the times. Used to read those during the NES days. Those were the days.

Just found out that it was Ninty of America’s decision to get rid of Nintendo Power, so the English version stays. Doesn’t seem fair somehow, but it can’t be helped.

WHAT

I still remember when I first got Nintendo Power back in ’05. Back when the DS Phat was considered amazing and advanced technology, and when the Wii was still called the “Revolution.”

One of these days, I’m gonna get a ton of old ’90s Nintendo Power magazines, if only as a remembrance to it.
