Nintendo Fun Club News Vol. 1 No. 3, Fall 1987

Nintendo Fun Club News Vol. 1 #3 (1987 Fall)

Fast action, high-tech weapons, and mutant monsters are just part of the challenge.

Metroid! And the Fun Club agrees:

To avoid getting lost in the underground mazes of Zebes, maps are a must. But you have to make them yourself!

A scrappy kid and complex play keep you moving fast.

Kid Icarus.

Noah Hoffman beats Ganon!

As promised lastish, the first ten people to call in and describe how they beat Ganon have their names printed here. What's next? Call in if you can beat Ganon a second time--presumably, this means on the second quest.

Mail Bag

Some rather unhelpful responses in here. Shannon Ashcraft of Westchester, ILL asks how to get the seven extra lives in SMB, and Fun Club replies that "you can get a lot more than seven" and says to consult the strategy guide. Craig Fullton of Newton Falls, OH asks which games Howard Phillips has in his library, and FC replies "too many to list". Why bother printing letters if you're not going to give an interesting reply?


Profiles of five of the Nintendo game counselors. Conveniently, each one really likes a different game that Nintendo is selling, and they want you to like it, too.

Have you got the Advantage?

A choice of "A" and "B" buttons adds all the control you need--and then some.

That's right, this accessory comes with both A and B buttons. What luxury!
