Kevin Keene, a teenager from Northridge, California, is brought to another universe known as Videoland, along with his dog, Duke, to defeat the evil villainess, Mother Brain. Mother Brain is trying to conquer Videoland. Kevin has been brought to defeat her, as foretold in an Ancient Prophecy. Kevin is given the title "Captain N: The Game Master". He and Duke join the N Team, which consists of Princess Lana (the Ruler of Videoland), Simon Belmont (the hero from Castlevania), Mega Man, Kid Icarus, and Gameboy (a giant supercomputer). The N Team goes up against the evil Mother Brain (the villain from Metroid) and her minions, King Hippo (Punch-Out), the Eggplant Wizard (Kid Icarus), and Dr. Wily (Mega Man). These forces of good and evil go up against each other and often find themselves in comical, hilarious situations. Written by Mark Moore <>

Not as perfect as my Natila books.....
13 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show didn't have very good voice acting, Kid Icarus's voice acting was horrible wait a minute, A person is named after Pit Kid Icarus????? That is a weird name for a show and the directors, the Producers, and all the people had to pay a MILLION dollars for a stupid show with bad voice acting, and weird animations. Not worth it...Speak out....Count it....This show is the worse show ever. Don't let your children watch it. They will have a total let-down with this show. I've first saw it with my sister on Youtube TODAY!!!! And I think the voices were terrible so I decided to play my ds instead. Did you know what?!?!? I got a writing talent certificate from all my Natila books because of the peaces. I think this show is annoying, and should not receive any rewards EVER!!!! I also can't believe my sister likes it just because she does not understand the bad cutting animation, and the stupid voices. Nobody should see this show. And one more thing. 1. Pit (Kid icarus) had a babylish voice. 2. Megaman sounded like his throat was hurting. That means an old man voiced Megaman 3. Simon sounds like a father like father of bride. And he had a orangeish face. What were these faggers doing?
