Nintendo of America and Future US’s long-running print magazine Nintendo Power temporarily became downloadable from Internet Archive. All 285 issues that were published between 1988 and 2012 were uploaded by archivists on a project called ‘Retromags’.
Before they were removed, uploader ‘Gumball’ posted a message on the site that read, “Every Issue of Nintendo Power from number 1 to 285 in cbr format. From what I could tell there wasn’t a collection of every single issue in one place but a scattered selection of different sets none of which were complete. So I put this together with the help of some awesome people for all to enjoy.”
Despite not being available anymore, we know how important Nintendo Power is to Nintendo and we’ve previously witnessed how protective they are of their IPs and products. We can only hope that they decide to make magazine issues more accessible in the digital space.

I am a media and pop culture enthusiast and love Nintendo and indie games, particularly Zelda and Stardew Valley. When I’m not gaming you’ll find me writing, creating fanart, and playing music covers of my favourite games!
