5,000 Mii Parade March

Another insane Mii collection video by CaliHurBoy. I’d also like to bring attention to the latest issue (v.223) of Nintendo Power, in which our own CaliHurBoy was mentioned in the readers pulse section for his Mii parade videos! Keep it up and lets shoot for a 10,000 Mii parade! link

Nintendo advertising grows up

Via DS Fanboy, this ad appeared in Nintendo Power, of all places.

New publisher readies Nintendo Power, but first a look back

From Game Set Watch: At its peak, NP was the premier outlet through which gamers got their info and strategies. For a time from its inception to around 1995, having a game make the cover of NP was a major advertising coup for whatever third-party publisher managed the feat, because full coverage in the mag had a direct effect on sales of the sort that good reviews in Famitsu are purported to have ...

Future to publish Nintendo Power starting Oct.

As expected, Nintendo announced a new publisher for Nintendo Power today, Future US, the same company that operates Next-Gen.biz, Official Xbox Magazine, PC Gamer, PSM: Independent PlayStation Magazine, and Official Nintendo Magazine UK. No word if all the editors are getting canned, but the first new issue under Future’s direction goes on sale next month. The result largely ends up as a sec...

Nintendo Power September 2007 Preview

Normally Nintendo Power wouldn’t be worthy of a preview post before it hits news stands (let alone any post), but given the mag’s juicy, early details on numerous games last month, the nerd in me anxiously awaits the September issue. Featured articles include: Preview of Soulcalibur Legends (Wii adventure game) Big Brain Academy profile Preview: Tomb Raider Anniversary (Wii) Preview: C...

Nintendo to “license” Nintendo Power to second-party publisher

The good news — given Nintendo Power’s venerable history and recent editorial improvements — is that the mag will live on despite recent rumors suggesting otherwise. Nintendo spin queen Perrin Kaplan coughed up some details in speaking with Game Informer saying that NP will “remain a magazine” only it will be licensed to another publisher under Nintendo’s owners...

There are gobs of promising Wii games coming

The recent July issue of Nintendo Power is the best issue I’ve read since first resubscribing a year ago. The thing is packed to the gills with promising Wii games and pretty much kills the conventional wisdom that Wii is only good for party-games. Granted, announcements and previews do not a great final game make, but I’m giddy at the prospects of all the games profiled. Says Managing...

Impossible Mission – coming to Wii Shop Channel

According to the Preview section of the June 2007 Nintendo Power, a remake of the classic Epyx game, Impossible Mission, is coming to Wii via the Shop Channel. The game was announced by developer System 3 several months ago, but this is the first confirmation about how it will be released to Wii owners. It’s something Nintendo hinted at a while ago, but this is the first confirmation of a no...

Super Smash Bros. Brawl – 11th character revealed

Nintendo Power quietly revealed another new character for Super Smash Bros. Brawl last month (in the May 2007 issue). A non-Zero Suit version of Samus was profiled in the magazine’s monthly Smash Files feature. We already knew that Zero Suit Samus was going to be in the game, but we had yet to see any confirmation of plain ol’ orange Samus showing up for the fight. Not a huge revelatio...

Nintendo Power features first party developer bonanza

GameSetWatch’s video game magazine round up features Nintendo Power again, and lauds the mag for its Nintendo first party exclusivity access. In this case: Pokemon. Oh, and if you want to get some insight into Nintendo’s first party developer scene, there’s a handful fo interviews there, as well: This month’s NP kicks it on the interview front as well, featuring a roundtabl...

"Ask a Ninja" dude a former Nintendo consultant?

Our favorite retro loving fanboy Racketboy dug up a nice little speculative story from a 1989 Nintendo Power. See that ninja model posing for a Ninja Gaiden article on your left? He looks a lot like the “Ask a Ninja” vidcaster. So are they one in the same? Well, they have the same freakin’ eyes, nose, and brows, but unless the Ninja has gotten hairier with age (which is possible)...
