Via Kotaku, the cover of the final issue of Nintendo Power magazine has been leaked, and if you are around the age of 30 or older, this one will hit you right in the childhood.

I still remember getting the first issue in the mail during the summer between second and third grade in 1988, and my brother still has that tattered copy (pictured below!) — I don’t think we could have beaten Ganon without that Legend of Zelda overworld map printed on the back side of the free RBI Baseball poster.

Nintendo announced the closure of Nintendo Power back in August.
