Of all the cartoons I remember from my youth, I honestly never thought that Captain N: The Game Master would ever see the light of day again. Then again, considering the renaissance that Nintendo is going through thanks to the Wii and DS, maybe it's of little surprise that this old Nintendo cartoon would make it's way to DVD. Originally airing in the late 80's/early 90's, when Nintendo was king of the console world (then again, they pretty much were the console world at the time), Captain N revolved around a California teenager lured into the interactive world of video games to combat evil. Alongside him in battle are video game characters including Castlevania's Simon Belmont, Capcom's robot icon Mega Man, and even cult video game icon Kid Icarus. As the show goes on, nearly every popular series to get it's start on the 8-bit NES is covered on Captain N; ranging from Tetris, Punch-Out (no Mike Tyson), Metroid, and even Zelda and Link (who had their own animated series too), and the series maintains a fun atmosphere throughout with a good amount of kid-aimed action. Watching Captain N now though suffers the same fate as many cartoons from the era; they haven't aged all too well. In the later episodes in particular, the animation (which was never really anything to write home about) seems to decline more in quality, and as a previous reviewer has already stated, not every episode in the series is here in this handsome DVD set. That aside, there's an actual nice assortment of extras for old time fans with fond memories of the series, and it's good to see Captain N make his way to DVD.
