Nintendo Power Shuts Down

After more than 20 years of publication, Nintendo Power magazine will be shutting down.

Nintendo Power‘s shuttering comes during a time of continuing struggles for the US magazine industry, which saw overall circulation numbers decline 10 percent in the first half of 2012. Gamers have increasingly come to rely on online sources for more timely and less space-limited gaming coverage, leading the venerable GamePro magazine to stop publishing late last year after 23 years in print.

Originally published by Nintendo, the magazine was handed off to Future Publishing in 2007. Now the long-running magazine has fallen victim to the decline in print media. Thanks to Ars Technica for the heads up!
