    This ad can't be from 1980. Nintendo Power was first published in 1988. The motifs in the ad are clearly from the 90's.

    That's just the decade. Ever since RetroJunk reset, the commercials on the site lost their actual year.

    It tastes like you're cheating.

    I guess AVGN did a great job on the history of Nintendo Power. James had many of these Nintendo Power magazines in his collection.

    Mario must have been on steroids at the time this ad was made. He probably went on a no pasta diet and ate a healthy portion of Nintendo powers.

    Wow. That has to be the CRAZIEST commercial I've ever seen from the 80s. I love the part where the TV explodes, which explodes the house, which explodes the entire planet. LOL!

    I still have a HUGE collection of Nintendo Power Magazines upstairs in my bedroom and still in MINT CONDITION! Sometimes when I'm bored or if I can't sleep at night, I'll take a couple out and read.
