Nintendo Power’s First 145 Issues Now Available to Read Freely Online at Internet Archive

on August 4, 2016 11:10 AM

For longtime Nintendo fans, one of the most beloved sources of news, tips, tricks, reviews, and more from all-things Nintendo was the company’s monthly Nintendo Power magazine, and while it’s been several years since the publication’s end, those looking for a blast from the past can now do so with the first 13 years of the magazine’s issues, now freely available to view.

Over on the Internet Archive, the free, non-profit online database has released 145 digitally-scanned issues of Nintendo Power, spanning from the magazine’s first issue in 1988 and running all the way through to June 2001, just around the launch of Nintendo’s Game Boy Advance handheld.

While the news in these issues aren’t exactly “news” anymore, the scans still give a great, high-quality look at a treasured gaming publication and its history, with the magazine’s first 13 years preserved and (hopefully more) on the way, with Nintendo Power having officially been discontinued in December 2012.
