If you grew up pouring through each issue of Nintendo Power then the Internet Archive might be your new best friend. They recently put each issue online to view and download for your nostalgic retro gaming needs. Nintendo Power discontinued all publications in 2013 but in it's 90's prime, it was the best way to learn about Nintendo games. My favorite parts of the Magazine were the comics and tips and tricks section where you could learn cheat codes and other secrets to your favorite games. The popularization of the Internet made magazines like Nintendo Power largely obsolete in favor of wikis and game sites but that said, it's still awesome that each issue is available to read.



Nintendo booted up their lawyers and now the issues of Nintendo Power have been removed from Archive.org. Hopefully Nintendo can release them digitally or allow a collectors edition reprinting to meet demand.

That was a really fun video. I remember so much of all that! And I remember thinking Mega Woman was kinda hot.

And here comes Nintendo being Nintendo, taking down the issues.

Right, I posted the update there. Good thing I downloaded them all when they were up.

Sad though. I hope they make them available legally i'd buy them all in a pack for sure. Maybe even all of them physically in a reprint. I think the NES classic is proving there is a market for this sort of thing. Well, the entire retro community is proof of that really :D

Dude, some sort of large coffee table style book of multiple issues would be rad :)
