Greetings and a belated happy new year to you all. It's been a long time coming, but the first episode of the Super Mario Bros. Z reboot is finally here. I did want to release it sooner, but life tends to get in the way at times.

I can't believe it has almost been a whole decade since I started work on this series. For those who are familiar with the original version, this episode combines the events of the first two episodes. I had always intended for them to be one whole episode, but due to technological limitations at the time, I had to split them up.
Fast forward 10 years and now I was finally able to create the episode like I had always truly envisioned. Now with much better quality across the board.
My Youtube account will be my main profile for uploading these new episodes. But I figured I would also upload them to Newgrounds since this is the site where I first made a name in the animation community.

I'm hoping to give the rest of the series the same treatment. But for now, please enjoy the first episode of the reboot.
Thanks to everyone for your support and patience.

I have rewatched the original series over and over again and each episode was as epic as the last time i watched them. It has been far too long but glad to see that you've made such progress and can't wait to see the reboot.

Even today these episodes send shivers down my spine. :( And that's the sad part...because that sensation will be nothing more than nostalgia since he'll never get to finish it.

Even better then I recall from long ago, well done man! Sound was on point, animation, text is just long enough to read. Only complaint is the same I had for before, some of the time with metal Bowser the pixels all just mesh together and hes just a grey silhouette of Bowser. Not sure alter the sprite would help or if its the resizing that's causing it.
