PDF: Nintendo Power #1 – Jul-Aug 1988
I’m following up on the first issue of Sega Visions magazine with the first issue of the beloved Nintendo Power. I can still remember when this issue first came out. I would have just been starting the third grade and I could help but be fascinated with the infamous claymation representation of Mario and the Mushroom Kingdom.
The original Super Mario Bros was still filling our little elementary school minds and after flipping through this magazine, we were impressed yet fairly confused about this new Super Mario Bros 2 game. It seemed so different from the original game, but of course, Nintendo Power knew how to spin the remake of Doki Doki Panic into something we would all anticipate like nothing before.
In addition to the huge SMB2 preview, there is also a good walkthrough of Zelda and a ton of other Nintendo nostolgia to be found.
Enjoy Issue #1!
