Nintendo Power (Japanese: ニンテンドウパワー) was a Japan-only peripheral for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (Super Famicom) and the Game Boy, released on September 30, 1997.

It was a flash cartridge that could store and run games on either a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (Super Famicom) or a Game Boy, depending on the model. Customers were able to purchase a blank SF Memory Cassette (Japanese: SFメモリカセット) or GB Memory Cartridge (Japanese: GBメモリカートリッジ), and then download games onto them in Lawson stores across Japan via the Loppi machines for cheaper than the recommended retail price. The Nintendo Power service was discontinued on February 28, 2007.

Only one Pokémon game for the Nintendo Power was ever released, Picross NP Vol. 1. It was the first in a series of Picross NP titles that were themed after Nintendo's most famous franchises.
