Retro Gamer Magazine Celebrates Christmas With Nintendo-Themed Cover

Posted by Damien McFerran

Festive fun

We're massive fans of UK publication Retro Gamer here at Nintendo Life, and this month's issue has us particularly excited. It showcases exclusive cover artwork featuring a plethora of Nintendo characters, including Mario, Link, Captain Falcon, Samus Aran and Donkey Kong.

The cover is the handiwork of Wil Overton, who's a long-time friend of Nintendo Life and did similarly amazing work on the classic UK SNES magazine Super Play. Overton also produced the cover for the final issue of Nintendo Gamer magazine.

You can order a physical copy of this landmark issue directly from Imagine Publishing's website. It's also available online.

Yeah, thats nice and all, but what about Pikachu?
Whats more surprising is that nobody commented on this article for over an hour a half.

Dashing to the shop, in my small four wheel car, to grab a copy! YAY!

Captain Falcon's pose is funny!

That's a much better cover art right there!
Link still kinda looks like a girl though, he should do something about that.

Even though I'm in America and we get our issues late in the month, I can think of few greater joys than picking up the latest Retro Gamer. Especially now that Nintendo Power has run it's course.

I love how DK is enjoying the ride while Link is scared out of his mind, just look at his completely freaked out face. Then again due to all the mine cart levels he had to deal with over the years, this coaster is probably nothing to DK!

After having a near death experience with the minecart in skyward sword, no wonder link is panicking. Also a F zero GX based roller coaster would make Formula Rossa a kiddie ride!
