C# ASP.NET MVC Basics Modeling and Presenting Data Using Strongly Typed Views

Update the VideoGamesController.cs controller to use the VideoGame data model.

Can anyone help me on this, code written in videogames controller and view part seems like correct but not sure what i have been missed over there.

VideoGamesController.cs
using System.Web.Mvc;

namespace Treehouse.Models
{
    public class VideoGamesController : Controller
    {
        public ActionResult Detail()
        {

            var videogame = new VideoGame()
            {
            Title ="Super Mario 64",
            Description ="Super Mario 64 is a 1996 platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64.",
            Characters = new Characters[]
                {
                    new Characters() {"Mario"},
                    new Characters() {"Princess Peach"},
                    new Characters() {"Bowser"},
                    new Characters() {"Toad"},
                    new Characters() {"Yoshi"},                
                }
            };

            return View(videogame);
        }
    }
}
Detail.cshtml
@model VideoGames.Models.VideoGame
@{
    ViewBag.PageTitle = "Video Game Detail";
}

<h1>@Model.Title</h1>

<h5>Description:</h5>
<div>@Model.Description</div>

<h5>Characters:</h5>
<div>
    <ul>
        @foreach (var character in Model.Characters)
        {
            <li>@character</li>
        }
    </ul>
</div>
VideoGame.cs
namespace Treehouse.Models
{
    // Don't make any changes to this class!
    public class VideoGame
    {
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string Title { get; set; }
        public string Description { get; set; }
        public string[] Characters { get; set; }
        public string Publisher { get; set; }

        public string DisplayText
        {
            get
            {
                return Title + " (" + Publisher + ")";
            }
        }
    }
}

Replaced the below code snipped for Characters array variable. Characters = new string[] { "Mario", "Princess Peach", "Bowser", "Toad", "Yoshi",
} Then issue get resolved, it is working now

{
    public class VideoGamesController : Controller
    {
         public ActionResult Detail()
        {
            var videogame = new VideoGame()
            {
            Title ="Super Mario 64",
            Description ="Super Mario 64 is a 1996 platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64.",
            Characters = new string[] { "Mario", "Princess Peach", "Bowser", "Toad", "Yoshi",}
            };

            return View(videogame);
