We reported yesterday the news that was making the rounds regarding Nintendo Power Magazine coming to an end, though Nintendo themselves had not made an official announcement.
Today, Nintendo has released an official statement that not only confirms the end of the publication, but also stating that the final edition will be the December 2012 magazine:
Nintendo can confirm that Future US will end the production of Nintendo Power magazine with the last issue slated for December 2012. For Nintendo Power subscription inquiries, please visit nintendopower.com/customerservice. Check out Nintendo at nintendo.com, on Facebook at facebook.com/nintendo or on Twitter @nintendoamerica.
It’s unfortunate that the magazine, which was the first gaming magazine for many gamers in the 80s, has finally run its course. Nintendo fans and collectors will want to pick up that December edition; I know I will.
