Nintendo Power to cease publication

The title says it all . . .Those of us who have been gamers for longer than the current generation of consoles will be saddened by this news.  Nintendo Power is shutting down.  Since 1988, Nintendo Power has been the publication for Nintendo fans everywhere.  Long before the internet was a twinkle in Al Gore’s eye, and while his wife, Tipper, was attacking the music industry, Nintendo Power emerged to provide all the Nintendo news and tips you could possibly want.

IGN got an official statement from Nintendo, which says:

“Nintendo can confirm that Future US will end the production of Nintendo Power magazine with the last issue slated for December 2012.”

Sad news, indeed.  24 years is a pretty good run, though.
