Final "Nintendo Power" Cover is a Shining Homage to the First Issue

Farewell issue to look back on quarter century of magazine's history

The final, farewell issue of Nintendo Power magazine is set to hit newsstands next month, and its cover delivers a wonderful homage to the first issue's claymation take on Mario. From Super Mario Bros. 2 to New Super Mario Bros. U, from 1988 to 2012, things come appropriately full circle. 


Nintendo Power Premiere Issue (1988) 


Nintendo Power Final Issue (2012) 


The final issue features a 20-page review of New Super Mario Bros. U, a list of the greatest games of all time, and a look back at 25 years of Nintendo Power history. Subscribers should be receiving the magazine soon, with newsstands to follow on December 11. 


The end of Nintendo Power was announced back in August.
