I was scrolling through Destructoid, when all of a sudden… BAM. I’m hit in the face with this. The final issue of Nintendo Power’s cover art.
I spent a large percentage of my childhood a devoted Nintendo Power subscriber. Before the Internet came along, it was really the only connection I had to discover any new gaming news, so I was deeply saddened when I heard that the next issue will be Nintendo Power’s finale.
Looking at this cover art in comparison to issue number one, the similarities are obvious. Kudos to the editors for paying respects in this way. The magazine has had an amazing run, and it really is legendary in the world of gaming mags. But I suppose it’s time to move on.
