Nintendo Power Magazine has a Future!

ninpowWhile it was hinted back in May, it looks like the fears of Nintendo Power Magazine getting the axe have faded away. In fact, Nintendo announced that Future US Inc. has taken the reigns of the magazine and will now formally publish Nintendo Power and its accompanied website.

Future’s first published Nintendo Power issue will be the December 2007 edition (volume 222), which will be released in October. Initial circulation will be 300,000 copies. Future currently publishes other gaming magazines, including Official Xbox Magazine, PSM Magazine, PC Gamer and Maximum PC.

George Harrison, senior vice president of marketing for Nintendo of America, said, "By teaming with Future US, Nintendo is ensuring the continued growth of the magazine’s circulation and bringing even greater value to Nintendo enthusiasts. The team at Future will carry on the quality and traditions of Nintendo Power, and the magazine will now be available at more newsstand locations than ever before."

Hooray! Good to see Nintendo Power is still alive and kicking. Being one of the oldest gaming magazines still in circulation, I’m sure many people, like myself, have fond memories of the magazine.
