The secret is out! Nintendo Power lives on through fan-r...

The secret is out! Nintendo Power lives on through fan-run magazine, Nintendo Force!
Click Here to View Story




So long...I've been waiting SOOOOOOOOOO long to reveal this one! My lord, the suspense has been killing me! Thankfully, the day is finally here. The official announcement of Nintendo Force us upon us!

Nintendo Power put up 25 great years in the industry, battling against all sorts of shifting methods of content delivery. Sadly, the time came when Nintendo decided to not push forward with the iconic magazine anymore. That left every Nintendo Power fan, old and young, with a big hole in their heart. That's where the Nintendo Force crew is hoping to step in and patch things up.

Nintendo Force is a spiritual successor to Nintendo Power. The magazine is aiming to provide the same type of content/vibe that Nintendo Power brought us for so many years. The difference is, Nintendo Force is staffed by Nintendo fans that currently work for some of the most well-known Nintendo websites out there. Check out this all-star crew below.




Recognize a few faces in there? We're absolutely honored to be a part of this massive undertaking. To even be considered for a spot in Nintendo Force was completely unbelievable to me. I know I'll be doing my best to make Nintendo Force the most loving tribute to Nintendo Power it can be. The same goes for the amazing crew that was pieced together, which I'm floored to work with. Nintendo Force was born from something truly sad, but with a crew like this, hopefully we can put back some smiles on faces.

I really look forward to bringing you the first issue of Nintendo Force, as does everyone else on the team. We've been working hard for months to pull this off. Let's hope we've managed to put something together that'll be worthy of a second issue!

How many fan successors to Nintendo Power are we going to get? Now I need to make choices, I hate choices! :P

EDIT: Heck with it, I can more than 1 magazines!

This still feels unreal to me, to be working alongside such talented individuals in the industry!

I really can't wait for our first issue to be available, based solely on the articles from my awesome colleagues above I think a lot of people are really going to enjoy it!

Nice! Should be a fun read! Is this a limited run thing or are you guys planning on making issues for an indefinite amount of time?

It won't take a moment away from GoNintendo, I promise. I work on Nintendo Force during my usual GN downtime. I've secretly put together 4 features while keeping business as usual going on GN! That should be proof positive that one won't take time away from the other.

Love to see so many great people working together ! I also think it's funny to see Camille Young, because I associate her with Earthbound (because Reidman, and the Sharkpunk figurine) and we just had that Itoi tweet. :) Sweet coincidence or christmas miracle, I don't know :)

Holy shovel! This is like the Smash Bros. of Nintendo fansites! I'm not from the US, so, my Nintendo Magazine classic was NGamer (and its predecessors) rather than Power -- which also recently closed. Do we fit for Nintendo Force too? :D

Will the magazine be published in Europe? Or perhaps some sort of digital worldwide distribution? Seeing it on Google Play would be sweet!

Dammit, RMC. No matter how awesome this is, it still means there'll be more work and less rest for you. I feel bad for you. :(

Still very awesome, of course, and while I never actually owned/read a Nintendo Power, I will certanly look into this~
