Nintendo Power’s Classic and Modern Cover Variants Hitting Newsstands

While we had previously reported on the screens found within Nintendo Power’s Shinobi and Sonic Generations 3DS reveal issue, we have yet to share the two versions of the cover. Now hitting newsstands are two way past cool covers featuring Classic and Modern Sonic. I’ve been keeping my eye on my local newsstand, making a sad face every time I saw the old Zelda cover of this past month on the rack. But today the awesome Sonic covers hit and I snatched them right up, thus falling into NP’s trap and giving them double the money. Oh well, it’s worth it for Classic Sonic.

    The Modern Sonic one looks so rad. :]

  2. Besides the Shinobi and Generations previews, the issue also has a two page interview with Archie discussing the Sonic Genesis mini-series and a GBA retrospective listing the top ten games for the system. SEGA's Gunstar Super Heroes and Astro Boy: Omega Factor are among the 10. Sadly, no mention of Sonic Advance.

    Overall, a SEGA packed issue!

    I like both designs, I've always liked both designs… Problem?

    Although when it comes to the in game model, Sonic Unleashed and Colours got the modern design SO RIGHT.

    On the other end of the (ZX) Spectrum; Sonic 06, Heroes and even the Sonic Adventure games got it very, very wrong.

    After nearly 10 years it's still weird to me to see Sonic on the cover of Nintendo Power.

    This is why it's so important though for a Sonic game never to skip a Nintendo platform…'ll very rarely (if ever) see Sonic as the cover story of OXM or Official Playstation Magazine. Nintendo Power loves Sonic.
