The official magazine for Nintendo reviews, previews and other propaganda announced it’s closing up shop. After 25 years on the press, Nintendo Magazine is ceasing publication.
If you were old enough to remember how the world was before the wild wild internet (circa NES/SNES), gamers had very limited sources for video game news, walkthroughs and cheats. Aside from guides, Nintendo Power was your monthly bible of game resources.
The news of the shutdown doesn’t come as a shock, with the closing of similar magazine Gamepro happening last year after 23 years of print. Both publications’ closing shows the long-coming death of the print era for gaming as we may know it.
