Nintendo Power Officially Done, Final Issue December 11

The very last issue of Nintendo Power is complete, according to a tweet from Phil Theobald.

"The last issue of Nintendo Power should be on newsstands on December 11, everyone. Don't miss it–there's some amazing stuff in it," he said.

News of the magazine shutting down went public in August, much to the chagrin of fans who grew up reading the magazine during its 24 year lifespan.

On a related note, former writers for Nintendo Power got together to share some of their fond memories of working at the publication at this website.

Look for the final issue of the magazine in stores and on newsstands December 11.

    I once got a free copy of the magazine. I found an old registration form for the Nintendo Club. As a gag, wanting to see what happened, I filled it out and sent it in. A few weeks later, I received in the mail a copy of Nintendo Power and a letter thanking me for my interest in the Nintendo club and informing me that it no longer existed. That was pretty awesome. I should have kept both, but got rid of them.

    I don't think I have ever held a subscription for the mag. My grandmother had it and I read hers when I used to visit her as a kid. She had all of them from the beginning and through to the N64 years. She has since gotten rid of them, and gave them to me. I enjoy reading them still and it's sad to see them go.

    R.I.P. Nintendo Power.

    I had Nintendo Power from Issue 20, I believe.  I discontinued my subscription years ago though due to severe financial difficulties at the time (got rid of all my magazine subscriptions at that point, in fact) and the fact that I wasn't really reading them anymore.
