Super Mario World(JP) is a main series Super Mario game for the Super Nintendo on November 21, 1990. As such, it is the sequel to Super Mario Bros. 3. The game was produced by Shigeru Miyamoto, featuring music composed by Koji Kondo, and graphics designed by Shigefumi Hino. This is the first Mario game in which Yoshi, Wigglers, Monty Moles, Banzai Bills, Pokeys and Magikoopas appear, as well as a save feature.

The game was followed in 1995 by a prequel, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, which is set many years before the events in Super Mario World.

Shigeru Miyamoto has stated that ever since they finished Super Mario Bros., the design staff wanted to have Mario ride a dinosaur. It was believed to be impossible technically until the Super NES was developed. According to Miyamoto, sixteen people were involved in the creation of the game, and it took about three years to make.
