Nintendo Power Strategy Guide
[ Publisher: Nintendo | Price: N/A | Format: Strategy Guide ]
Today we're taking a look at Nintendo Power Strategy Guide. No, I'm not talking about Nintendo Power, but rather their short-lived spin-off. This came during the awkward phase when they were transitioning from bi-monthly to monthly. Find out if any of these guides are worth reading when you watch today's episode of 29 Magazines of Christmas.



Excerpt: Instead of simply releasing twelve issues a year, Nintendo Power decided to go a completely different direction. They created a spin-off called Nintendo Power Strategy Guide. This bi-monthly magazine was designed to tackle a single game, starting with Nintendo's own flagship release, Super Mario Bros. 3.

On Tomorrow's Episode: Come back tomorrow when we'll take a look at Nintendo Power Strategy Guides. No, I'm not talking about Nintendo Power, but rather a short-lived spin-off you may have forgotten about. Find out what I'm talking about on Friday's episode of 29 Magazines of Christmast.
