Super Mario World is a platform game released by Nintendo in 1990 for the SNES.

The SNES compilation Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World contained remakes of the Super Mario Bros. series, as well as Super Mario World. The Game Boy Advance version, Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World, has several new features, including a battle mode homage to the original Mario Bros. game (which is included in every Super Mario Advance title).


After saving the Mushroom Kingdom in Super Mario Bros. 3, brothers Mario and Luigi decide to go on holiday to a place called Dinosaur Land, a prehistoric-themed world swarming with dinosaurs and other enemies. While resting on the beach, Princess Toadstool disappears. When Mario and Luigi wake up, they try to find her and, after hours of searching, come across a giant egg in the forest. It suddenly hatches and out of it comes a young dinosaur named Yoshi, who tells them that his dinosaur friends have also been imprisoned in eggs by evil Koopas. Mario and Luigi soon realise that it must be the evil King Bowser and his Koopalings.

Mario, Luigi and Yoshi set out to save Princess Toadstool and Yoshi's dinosaur friends, searching Dinosaur Land for Bowser and his Koopalings.
