As children of the 80s and 90s, we're getting a little misty-eyed writing this, but it seems that Nintendo Power, once the final word in the gaming magazine world, will be shutting its doors. That news comes from a source over at Ars Technica and seems pretty well backed up by a number of tweets from the magazine's staff discussing plans for the final issues of the magazine -- which, for some reason or other have since been pulled from the microblogging service. Nintendo Power published its first issue in the summer of 1988, becoming the leading voice in a gaming landscape dominated by the NES. According to Ars, Nintendo had proven "difficult to work with" and was no longer interested in keeping the brand going.

Update: Not that there was much doubt, but Ars Technica is now reporting that Nintendo has confirmed the shutdown. The last issue of the magazine is slated for December of this year.
