Nintendo Power is finished, but the soul still burns. A group of Nintendo-writers have joined forces to create the new magazine Nintendo Force!

More details to follow. I'm not sure who's spearheading the project (though Lucas Thomas signed the letter), but it's written by fans, for fans. Heck, our own TriforceBun is in on the project!

Learn more at their official website and see who's writing for them.

That's great! And that's awesome that Matt's on board. Cheers!

Also, yeah. We need some Negative World representation up in there. Fo' shizzle. Hopefully some of those on-staff are handheld gamers.

@NinSage No love for Raw Meat Cowboy? Why is that?

True, handhelds are always under represented in the media, needs more Craig Harris!

I gave him half-love. =P

But, I find him a little reckless with his power. He posts way too much flame bait for the sake of traffic, and ignores happy news for the opposite reason. He often posts the same stories multiple times (like... the exact same story), and mistakenly posts old news as new.... news.

Now, all this is done in the name of (supposedly) sharing anything and everything that has to do with Nintendo but I know folks (not me) who have submitted well-written reviews and other content and he's completely ignored it.

Just a little disappointing for someone who could do so much good for the Nintendo community. But still.... he's miles ahead of Neal =P

And most importantly, he's miles behind all those other awesome people on this list!!!

I want to subscribe to this and I don't even know if it will be any good. I have a feeling it will be though. And I never subscribe to magazines.

Good point Zero.

I definitely should be a part of this on behalf on Negative World.

@Stephen I wouldn't oppose that. Get on there!

I've emailed with Kevin back and forth a few times and I found him to be really nice, but maybe kinda scatter-brained. Once he posted some pics of a giant Wii advertisement I took in Times Square (and they got picked up by Kotaku which was kinda neat).

I stopped listening to the podcast a long time ago though, all those people talking at once with no editing, tons of laughing and inside jokes and most of the time very little actual discussion of gaming, what a mess!

Yup. Very friendly individual. Just not very responsible.

And yea, their approach to the podcast mirrors their approach to the site. They have tons of attention but they just provide .... basically filler.... very little regard for service to the audience. Way too much self-satisfaction.

so has anyone else read this yet? because not a lot of people are talking about it. probably because of that steep asking price.

not fan personally but i was curious what other people thought.

Hmm, yeah, I'd love to support this but it's just a little too pricey for me, especially considering I have no idea what I am paying for (aside from some great TBun art, of course ).

little original content, mediocre writing and really lousy layouts. thats what you'd be paying for, that is.

matt's stuff and the camille's little clay models are nice though. oh. and the quality of the paper. the paper's cool.

I don't remember MammaMia being that popular with the ign crowd...sometimes even seemed crazy....then I saw his Wiifolder videos and site and was impressed and he seemed like a good normal guy haha

So I'm confused....now theres TWO Nintendo magazines???

I desperately want this publication and want to reward all those great staff members, but I just CAN NOT afford that price!! I applaud their effort but who did they think would be affording this??

It's $5 for the digital version, yeah? That's not *too* steep, is it fellas?

Well, when you consider it's about $17 for the print copy, I guess not.

I can tell you right now, no way is this mag going to last long with those prices. Their heart is in the right place wanting to do this for free and giving the proceeds to charity and all, but I don't have a problem with them making money doing this. Get some advertisers. Or bye-bye.

@GameDadGrant $5 is reasonable for the digital version, and I'm planning on checking out the first issue. But part of the reason I buy magazines is because they're magazines. If I'm gonna look at a screen on my computer or my iPad or whatever, I might as well just come here, or to any number of other Nintendo websites. I was very interested in getting it in print, but not at $17 a pop.

$18* a mag? Really? Eep..

That is NOT in the spirit of Nintendo Power. Wasn't it like $20 a year?

Apparently it is $17.99*
