Nintendo Power Shuttung Down

Report: Nintendo Power Shutting Down

By Jim Reilly on August 21, 2012 at 01:24 PM





Nintendo Power, one of the longest-running game magazines, is shutting down, according to reports. Ars Techinica first reported the details, saying Future Publishing is planning to stop publishing the magazine.
The report says Nintendo Power staff was informed of the closure last week and are currently being transitioned to other properties at Future. It's unclear at this time how many more issues of Nintendo Power will be published or what will happen to current subscribers.
A source speaking to Ars Technica said Nintendo was always "difficult to work with" and the company was uninterested in renewing its contract or "taking part in a number of digital initiatives that Future saw as necessary for the long-term health of the brand."
The magazine first started in 1988.
Both Nintendo and Future have been reached for comment.

Despite their...annoying-ass bias, it is sad to see them go. I wish the editors best of luck

You beat me to saying it (as usual).

Despite claiming that Nintendo has no influence over their opinions and such it's pretty obvious that they're biased. A first party game never gets below an 8, and there is alot of Sonic worship that goes on in it. I don't even think PlayStation's magazine is that biased.

But like Ibarra said, it is a little sad to see them go at the same time. I remember always liking the Pulse (letters to the editors) section.

lol but as a kid you never really understand about bias in publishing. I always just got excited to see a magazine that covered my favourite video games and characters XD. That was when i was 6 of course though :P

Someone please tell me this is some kind of a joke... I hate Game Informer, but I only put up with it because I get it for free. I go out of my way to read Nintendo Power, and it's gonna suck if this magazine stops : l
