After 25 long years of service, Nintendo Power is coming to an end next month. As a former magazine ourselves, we know how hard it is to make the decision to stop printing and we wish the staff and brand the best of luck. Instead of going out with a whimper, however, Future has put together quite the send-off to the beloved magazine. When it hits newsstands December 11th, fans will be treated to a “Wii U Review Spectacular,” a “Greatest Games of All Time” feature and tons of history and throwbacks to history of the magazine.
While we’ll have to wait to get our hands on a copy to see how the send-off was handled, the cover, which was leaked today, is certainly a good start. As seen below, fans may instantly recognize the image, which is modern update of the cover of the very first issue of Nintendo Power.
