This section is completely devoted to covering "appearances" of Captain N and The Legend of Zelda in magazines, books, and on TV.

Nintendo Power, Volume 7 - July / August 1989

This article previews "The Super Mario Bros. Super Show" and "The Legend of Zelda" segment.

Nintendo Power, Volume 7

Nintendo Power, Volume 8

This is where we first got a glimpse of Kevin Keene, Princess Lana, Mother Brain, Mega Man, and Duke! Notice the differences between the article and the show. The show is called "Captain N: Game Master". Videoland is called Nintendoland. The Ultimate Warp Zone is referred to as "the Power of the Orb". Also, Kid Icarus was originally going to be called by his game name, Pit. The "N" on Kevin's jacket is yellow. Lana has her power scepter! Why'd they take that out?! There's also mention of the Forces of Light and the League of Darkness. It seems as though the comic books included most of the stuff that the TV series rejected! Good for them! Also, this article establishes that Kevin is 15 years old in Season 1, just like I guessed!

Captain N is mentioned in the 10th Anniversary timeline. However, they made a huge mistake! They list Captain N as starting in September of 1990! Also, there is no mention of "The Legend of Zelda" TV series or Nintendo Comics System!
