With over 20 years of published issues under their belt, Nintendo Power Magazine is soon to be no more.

Nintendo has chosen not to renew their licensing agreement with Futura Publishing. Futura has been responsible for publishing Nintendo Power since they acquired the licensing rights back in 2007.

According to the folks over at Joystiq, "Editors and staff members were told that the magazine would be shut down sometime last week and have since begun transitioning to other Future publications." 

Originally launching back in 1988, Nintendo Power was a staple for every gamer. Old issues were filled with tips, tricks, and industry news. We will be sad to see her go.
