Our readers old enough to remember the early days of Nintendo Power might recall with great fondness the comics that appeared in some of those issues. Whether is was Nester’s adventures, or illustrated retellings of Super Metroid or Star Fox, the comics were another one of the plethora of reasons that made the magazine a cornerstone of the Nintendo fandom. Tracking down all those issues would prove to be a timely and costly endeavor nowadays, but capturing at least a small part of that nostalgia is soon going to be much easier.

Viz Media, a company responsible for localizing countless anime and manga, has announced that they will be releasing the comic version of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The comic was drawn by Shotaro Ishinomori, a celebrated mangaka responsible for Kamen Rider and Cyborg 009, and premiered in Nintendo Power all the way back in 1992.

“Many older fans recall eagerly awaiting each new issue of Nintendo Power magazine back in the ‘90s for a new monthly chapter of A Link to the Past.” said Senior Editorial Director Beth Kawasaki. “While it followed the overall story arc of the original Super Entertainment System game, creator Ishinomori also added new plot twists and characters that made this a stand-alone favorite among multiple generations of fans.”

The collected issues of A Link to the Past will be available on store shelves sometime in May.
