Last ‘Nintendo Power’ issue shouts out to first cover

none | Boulder Weekly

Nintendo Power magazine was an integral part of the childhoods of the nerdier among us.

The monthly publication, put out by Nintendo itself as a review, preview and in-depth magazine for Nintendo platforms from the NES to the Wii, has announced it will be publishing its final issue this month.

The cover of the final issue calls back to the first issue, from 1988, featuring Nintendo’s long-standing hero Mario jumping and smiling.
