Pure Nintendo Update

With 7 days remaining, Pure Nintendo’s kickstarter project has exceeded the halfway mark, but still needs some help to bring the dream to a reality.  With such a short time remaining to reach their goal, I thought i would repost the original article for those that might have missed it.  Please be sure to click the picture above to view a full issue of the magazine!

I think my fandom of Nintendo Power has drawn me close to this project.  I urge you to check it out!

When I heard the news that Nintendo Power was ending publication, I was crushed.  I almost blame myself for not picking up an issue in years, but in my childhood I was an avid subscriber.  I can remember anticipating the newest issue’s arrival, then slowly thumbing through the pages to ensure I did not miss a single detail.  Now that it is gone, I feel that a piece of my childhood is lost.  I know there are a lot of gaming magazines out there, but none are devoted exclusively to Nintendo products.  Now, that is not a bad thing, but only a purely Nintendo magazine could devote the love and attention that our favorite gaming company deserves.

Our friends over at PureNintendo.com are just as passionate about the Nintendo universe as we are here at Infendo.  They also felt the void left by Nintendo Power’s demise, so Nate Sylvia and  Justin Sharp decided to do something about it!  They decided to launch a Kickstarter project to help them raise the money needed to publish a high quality magazine that would include “high definition screen shots, photos, and intelligent articles”.  Pure Nintendo Magazine will be perfect for the fan that prefers a print version, as well as a digital version for mobile, tablet and desktop devices.

“We love Nintendo and we hope you do too!! Help us prove to the gaming community that there are still Nintendo fans out there who have an insatiable appetite for all things Nintendo! “, pretty much sums up the passion that Nate and Justin have for this project.  Their devotion to the king of consoles is what will set Pure Nintendo apart from other gaming magazines.

The Kickstarter project has a goal of $20,000.00 and ends on October 11 at 10:19 PM EDT.  Those that pledge at least $20.00 to this amazing project will be awarded with some great items, such as a year subscription and other great items (I personally want to hoodie)!

I urge everyone to check out their Kickstarter page and consider pledging at least one dollar if you can.  the dedications and support of fans like us are needed to help bring the vision of Pure Nintendo Magazine forth.  I, for one, am very excited to see the success of the of the magazine and will be proud to say that my contribution helped make it happen!  To check out the project and submit your pledge, click the following link!
