Nintendo is getting nostalgic with its Nintendo Power magazine cover mockup


Living in the UK and growing up with the Official Nintendo Magazine, I have never had the pleasure of holding an issue of Nintendo Power. Even so, the legacy of Nintendo’s official release in the United States is not lost on me: the magazine has made a lot of headlines in online gaming media over the years, and many Nintendo fans shared their fond memories while leafing through its divine pages. Nintendo itself hasn’t forgotten either, having shared a Nintendo Power mockup to promote Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros.

The nostalgic comeback features a light gold-colored cover in honor of the Game & Watch, aptly stating that “It’s still Mario time.”

Unfortunately, such a magazine does not exist, but the Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. exists – at least for a while. Remember, it’s only available until March 31, so act fast if you don’t want to miss it!

Nintendo Power’s print publication ceased in 2012, but continues as a podcast on Nintendo’s YouTube channel, featuring members of the Nintendo Treehouse and other special guests. The latest episode released today, focusing on Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury.

When not playing games, Reece typically reads Punisher comics, helplessly dives into the strangest depths of anime and manga, or spends time with them. her cocker spaniel Gracie – the cutest girl ever!
