Chapter 3-3: Up, Up, and a Tree
After making it out of the ocean, Mario, Princess Peach, and Bowser continue their journey to Fort Francis through the Dotwood Tree. They are really close and must scale up the large tree first. After many climbing outside and inside of the tree, Mario and company make it to the very top where they are confronted by Dimentio. Dimentio is eager to defeat the heroes and transports them to Dimension D to do battle. Dimentio states that Dimension D makes him stronger, but he didn't know it would make the heroes stronger as well, eventually leading to his defeat. However, Dimentio soon ponders to himself that they may be strong enough to defeat Count Bleck after all. Mario and company continue upwards and rides the red wind over to a pipe that leads to Fort Francis.
