Super Mario World (originally known in Japan as Super Mario Bros. 4: Super Mario World) was the first Mario game and launch title released for the Super Famicom on November 21, 1990. The game was produced by Shigeru Miyamoto, featuring music composed by Koji Kondo, and graphics designed by Shigefumi Hino. An updated version has been released on the Game Boy Advance. This is the first Mario game where Yoshi made his debut and the addition of a save feature.
The game was followed in 1995 by the prequel, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, which is set many years before the events in Super Mario World. Yoshi's Island spawned its own series of sequels.
At some point during the game's development, it was meant to be released in North America and Europe as Super Mario Bros. 4: Super Mario World and Super Mario Bros.: Super Mario World, but it was later shortened to Super Mario World.
