The iconic magazine that has followed generations of Mario, Nintendo Power, is reaching its end this year.
In the aftermath of rumours and deleted tweets this week, the House of Mario confirmed via Twitter that "the December issue of Nintendo Power magazine will be its last".
Nintendo Power is one of the longest running gaming publications to date, starting life back in July 1988 when the NES was in full force. However after 24 spectacular years of coverage, a licensing agreement with publisher Future will not be renewed.
According to Ars Technica, Nintendo have been reluctant to take the brand into the digital age by having the magazine up for download only. Staff working on the publication have already started drafting into other areas.
It's uncertain whether Nintendo themselves will eventually bring the magazine in-house once again, though with a continually strong digital presence on YouTube and Nintendo Direct, a new official magazine is unlikely.
