This is shot I took of Mario just before he fought this Huge ass Gorilla in the distance.
Somehow he heard about some shit here in Mount Yoshi that the Big Simian guarded and needed to get his stubby, pizza eating hands on them. So yeah...reason for the visit. Uhhh...Mario was totally unaware that he had to beat a number of obstacles and order to attain what he wanted, so I believe this was the 1st level of many. Totally sucked balls!
His job: Beat every obstacles, slay the Simian at the Top and Acquire a mysterious set of items.
