Ars Technica reported that long time gaming publication, Nintendo Power, will cease publication.
More details after the break.
Running since 1988, Nintendo Power has remained one of gaming’s longest-running magazine publications until now. Pulling from Twitter, Ars originally reported earlier today that Nintendo Power was ending.
Apparently, Nintendo, which was said to have always been “difficult to work with,” wasn’t interested in renewing their contract with Future Publishing, who currently publishes the magazine, or taking part in a slew of digital initiatives that Future saw as helping the publication survive.
Nintendo is also not interested in taking over direct control of the publication.
Nintendo Power Senior Editor Chris Hoffman confirmed that the publication is closing as did writer Phil Theobald who also added that the staff has “something pretty sweet planned for the final issue.”
It’s believed that the staff will move on to other Future publications.
Geez, I always thought that Nintendo Power would always be around in some form.
