Super Mario: Yoshi Island (スーパーマリオ ヨッシーアイランド , Suupaa Mario Yosshii Airando?), often referred to as Yoshi's Island, was developed and originally released in Japan, then localised as Yoshi's Island: Super Mario World 2 on the SNES and later as Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3 on the Game Boy Advance. It is a platform game by Nintendo for the SNES.

Despite the numeral 2 in the localized title, the game is unrelated to Super Mario World. In fact, the original title of the latter is Super Mario Bros. 4, whereas this game's original title is Super Mario: Yoshi's Island. While featuring Nintendo's trademark Mario character, the game's innovative graphics and gameplay differed from all previous Mario platformers in that players control various Yoshi lizards rather than Mario himself, who appears as a helpless infant.

The Game Boy Advance version contains new features, including six brand new levels, and a battle mode homage to the original Mario Bros. (which was included in every single version of Super Mario Advance).
