Nintendo Power

Nintendo Power in Top 50 magazines

As voted by the Chicago Tribune. The magazine is 20 years old, but it is still stuck in its tweens and that’s a good thing. Just as the Nintendo company has, the magazine has had to adapt and reinvent itself. You can read it for the nostalgia factor or to get a taste of the upcoming games for Wii and DS systems. I resubscribed in late 2005 for the nostalgia factor, but stayed for the games. ...

Nintendo Power teases once again

Now I know what you’re thinking…”Just another pathetic hint for a let down game”. True. Within the last few months Nintendo Power hasn’t really been the top source for big reveals, but their latest issue (August 2008) looks to be hiding a good old fashioned fanboy megaton. The new issue which covers Mad World, Castlevania Judgment, Fire Emblem DS, etc. promises a big reveal for next mont...

Nintendo Power: Nester returns!

Way back in the 1990s, when times were simpler and we didn’t have the Internets, there was a special day that happened once a month that made those long hours in elementary and middle school worth while. It was Nintendo Power day; that day when the mailbox would belch forth a mint copy of Nintendo’s gaming publication. I’d read through it in an hour or so, memorize the cheats, an...

Dracula starts an unholy brawl; Castlevania: Judgment confirmed for Wii

GoNintendo posted information yesterday from the latest issue of Nintendo Power confirming long-standing rumors that Konami is bringing a new Castlevania game subtitled “Judgment” to Wii. However, the game shares little in common with prior entries in the fabled series. Konami has thrown enthusiasts of its vampire-slaying franchise a curveball; Castlevania: Judgment is a 3D fighter. Ac...

Nintendo Power secret revealed

In a follow up to last month’s teasing issue, Nintendo Power has let loose the info on the “shocker” title in this months mag. It’s not Kid Icarus, Harvest Moon, Earthbound, or even Star Fox. It’s the one…the only…Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia for the DS! (*Silence*) Would have been great news had we not of known about this over a month ago. Don’t get me wrong. A new Castlevan...

Nintendo Power: Next Month’s secret

This is the teasing image Nintendo Power readers were given in the “Next Month” section of the mag. They say the above image contains clues to a “big” title that will be revealed next month. More clues were found in the “Pulse” section where a reader asks what games the staff is looking forward to the most. Their answer…

Old skool Zelda art from Nintendo Power is awesome

Studio Fish has posted a collection of 23 art pieces “that were featured in Nintendo Power magazine from the late 80’s to early 90’s,” most of which are nothing short of amazing. Get that.

Nintendo Power endorses PlayStation 2

From the 7.5 review of Okami on Wii (May 2008 issue): The controls just didn’t make the jump to Wii as well as they should have… Okami is a work of genius, but you should play the original [PS2] game instead of the Wii version if you can. There you have it.

Nintendo Power unveils new Trauma Center

Nintendo Power has revealed that a new Trauma Center game is in development for Nintendo DS. According to the May ’08 issue, the new title is a direct sequel to 2005’s Under the Knife. Players resume the role of Dr. Derek Stiles, accompanied again by Nurse Angie, as they face the aftermath of the GUILT virus and decipher its terrible mysteries. The magazine also revealed the DS sequel ...

Infendo Friend-o in Nintendo Power!

Will/Alucard from the Infendo Forums (and co-author of the Smash-O-Meter articles) gets his fifteen minutes of fame in the new issue of Nintendo Power. On page 94 of the April issue, there’s a story about the Professor Layton event we told you about. Congrats again, Will!

Nintendo Power — better or worse?

Nintendo Power was a mag I read cover to cover back in the 90’s, but eventually my stacked subscriptions ran out (free Dragon Warrior with 2-year renewal? GET!) I stopped reading. This isn’t to say it went away, not at all. It looked much different that I remembered it over the past eight years or so, but it was still a good source for biased, up to date Nintendo news and reviews. Then...

Sonic RPG revealed in next Nintendo Power

Alucard in the Infendo Forums clued us in to the next cover of Nintendo Power and its revelation of details about Bioware’s upcoming Sonic RPG. The new game will be called Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. Based on the promotional art and title, it actually looks slightly interesting. Still not sure if Sonic is a rich enough character to give us a good RPG. Thoughts? [Source]
