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.


Wow it's basically 2 old episodes in one. In fact I didn't know he had return to make animation again, but I watched and well you can see my rating, right?

It basically uses sprite animation, but sometimes you can see full 3d objects, new drawing to represent something and oh boy same climax, but a complete re-imaginative story, that was awesome. Still uses something here and there from the old episodes and some effects from Dragon Ball Z, but seeing I had an impression that he really wants to make something new, not just taking sounds effects, backgrounds and etc directly to the original material, so that's cool.

I've been fan since the original came out like 8 years ago, and we all were waiting to him ends this story, so the time finally come and I just can't wait for the next episode... :)

Great Mannn!!! finally! hope that a second chapter comes out!

Theses types of animations shaped my childhood x)
