Continue? Yes!

Hello, this is Jeremii of Nintendium 128, also one of the leaders of Operation: Power Up.   Today, December 11, 2012, is the day where the last issue of Nintendo Power will be published.  My subscription ended around October, a few months after Nintendo confirm the cancellation of Nintendo Power, so there was no way for me to renew.  Be that as it may, I went to pick up the last issue.  As I saw the issue out on display, it felt like a surreal experience.  Seeing the giant homage to the first issue of Nintendo was heartwarming.  However knowing this might possibly the last issue ever was deeply saddening.  It felt like an end of an era.  I always felt that Nintendo Power will always be there, like Nintendo itself.  However seeing the words “Final Issue” was just too unreal.  

At the end of the issue, there’s a picture the reads “Game Over!  Thanks for reading!”  We of Operation: Power Up are looking for the “Continue” option.  Please continue to support us in hopes of Nintendo of America bringing back or resurrecting Nintendo Power as a magazine or some sort of digital format.  Don’t let this legacy die now.  Sign our petition, join or Facebook, follow us on Twitter, join our events, write letters to Nintendo of America to let them know that you want the Power, Nintendo Power.
