We get a lot of DVD offers for giveaway and some make it to the website, others we have to deny, but when I saw that captain N was coming to DVD, I squeezed my joystick in joy…cause its a– nevermind. For those of you who don’t remember the awesome lameness that was Captain N, it was back in 1991 when in Captain N: The Game Master, ordinary California teenager Kevin Keene becomes Captain N, the hero of Videoland ” a universe where Nintendo video games are real! Captain N and his dog Duke join the N Team, which consists of fellow crime fighters Princess Lana, Simon Belmont, Kid Icarus, and Game Boy. Maybe you will remember when the N Team duked it out against Mother Brain’s most heinous henchmen: King Hippo, the Eggplant Wizard, Count Dracula, and Dr. Wily. Their ultimate quest was to fulfill an ancient prophecy and bring the evil villainess Mother Brain to justice once and for all!
Geek out enough yet? Well here’s some annoying jargan from their press release:
