GamePro was one of the two most popular video game magazines of the 1990s (the other being EGM). GamePro wasn’t my personal favorite but it did have a long life and some good content along the way. In 1996 the transition from 16-bit to 32-bit consoles was in full swing so a lot of systems were being covered.

The April 1996 issue includes the following:

Cover Feature

  • Creating Evil Incarnate: The Making of Resident Evil
  • Resident Evil ProReview

Features

  • Nintendo 64 is Coming! – The system’s late, but the games look great! Load up on news on the Nintendo 64’s revised launch date, as well as a rundown of key titles.
  • Where Are All the 16-bit Games? – The list of Genesis and SNES games for 1996 is small but intriguing. A look at how the year is shaping up for 16-bit games.
