The "Nintendo Fun Club News" was the periodical sent to those who bought a membership to the Nintendo Fun Club in the late eighties. Issues were published seasonally and included information on upcoming releases, gameplay tips, subscriber stories, and more. The first two issues truly were a folded-up newsletter printed with black and pink ink. The last five were a short magazine printed in full color. Due to the tremendous popularity of the NES, Nintendo needed a much larger format in wich it could deliver its ever-growing content to readers. Hence, the back cover of issue seven was a clip-out subscription to the forthcoming "Nintendo Power." The rest is history. This is video is a tribute to the newsletter that paved the way for the "Nintendo Power" we know today. It is a photo montage of the front and back covers of each of the seven issues of the "Nintendo Fun Club News."
