Nintendo Power was once the go-to guide for all the latest happenings on Nintendo systems for North American readers. However, a source from within Future Publishing US has revealed that it will cease publication of the magazine, which has been in production for 24 years.
Speaking with ArsTechnia, the source revealed that it was Nintendo who initiated the break up. Nintendo had handled the publishing of Nintendo Power internally until the end of 2007, until the publication was outsourced to Future. The source also suggested that Nintendo was “difficult to work with,” and was uninterested in renewing that contract, going digital or bringing the title back in-house.
No news on when that final issue will hit, though the editorial staff have suggested that something big is planned for the final issue.
