As children of the 80s and 90s, we’re getting a little misty-eyed writing this, but it seems that Nintendo Power , once the final word in the gaming magazine world, will be shutting its doors. That news comes from a source over at Ars Technica and seems pretty well backed up by a number of tweets from the magazine’s staff discussing plans for the final issues of the magazine — which, for some reason or other have since been pulled from the microblogging service. Nintendo Power published its first issue in the summer of 1988, becoming the leading voice in a gaming landscape dominated by the NES. According to Ars , Nintendo had proven “difficult to work with” and was no longer interested in keeping the brand going.
