Our final issue of the 2014 calendar year, “The Gratitude Project” is named for our social media campaign that springboarded off of the Thanksgiving holiday. We challenged our readers to use #GratitudeProject and send tweets of thankfulness out to the hardworking video game developers of the world – the people who make our favorite pastime possible! Five lucky readers who participated in the project were rewarded with free Amiibo figurines!
Speaking of Amiibo, a complete launch guide for the new toys-to-life line was included in this issue as well, along with a focus on Super Smash Bros. as we reviewed both the 3DS and Wii U editions of the new fighting sequel. But the icing on the cake is the two-sided Super Smash Bros. poster!
One poster is included with each copy of this issue. On one side it features a new, original art piece from Thor Thorvaldson depicting the entire playable cast of the new Smash together in a single scene. On the reverse, Nintendo’s official art for each of the fighters appears. Which side will you display on your wall?
