Super Mario World Walkthrough

Updated on January 7, 2012

Watch, Buy, Play and Relive Super Mario World for the SNES

Super Mario World for the SNES was released in 1991, the very first game introduced on the then new Nintendo console. It marked the first appearance of Yoshi, the return of the Koopalings, and another fight with the evil Bowser. The new power-up, the Cape Feather, allowed Mario to fly, while the game offered a whole new level of challenge and fresher 16 bit graphics. Find out how to download Super Mario World, game cheats, the characters that make a return to this game, and how you can play it on the Wii console and relive this classic game in all its glory!

The Power Ups

The introduction of Cape Mario

There are a couple of new power-up abilities introduced in this game, as well as some old favorites. You'll be able to use the classic Super Mushroom and Fire Flower, but you'll also find the Cape Feather, which is brand new to this game. The Cape Feather will allow Mario to fly and land with a giant boom, crashing down on the ground creating a shockwave. Also, you can use Yoshi as a power-up of sorts, as he can take one hit as many times as you keep hopping back on him and you won't lose any damage.

What happened in this game?

Unlike other games in the series, this one involves a kidnapping of Princess Peach (more future titles will reuse this tried and true storyline) and the imprisonment of dinosaurs from Dinosaur Island. Making a return are Bowser's Koopalings, as well as many of the classic enemies like Bob-Ombs, Goombas, Koopa Troopas, Bullet Bills, Piranha Plants, and Boos.

Making his introduction in this game is Yoshi, the lovable dinosaur that inhabits an island somewhere in or near the Mushroom Kingdom. As Mario and Luigi battle their way to save the Princess and the dinosaurs, they defeat the Koopalings and have their final battle with Bowser. They defeat him in his fortress, freeing the Princess and the dinosaurs.
