Super Mario World

Update: Donkey Kong Country comparison added below.

Original: The folks over at Nintendo World Report have a couple of comparison videos involving the Super NES Classic Edition. Star Fox 2 is compared to the beta while Super Mario World is compared to the original SNES release. Both videos are included below.

With the release of the SNES Classic around the corner, Nintendo decided to make up some artwork in the format of Nintendo Power magazine covers. These three pieces of artwork cover Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Star Fox 2.

Nintendo urged fans on Twitter to download and enjoy the covers, but those attending PAX West this week can obtain physical copies.

Did you know Big Boos can be defeated by sliding down stairs in Super Mario World. It’s the only Boo in the game that can be taken down in that manner, so perhaps it was an oversight on the part of Nintendo’s developers.

Some players definitely knew about this, but there are plenty who were completely unaware of it. How many of you tried out that little secret back in the day?


YouTube user SethBling has managed to inject Flappy Bird code into Super Mario World by taking advantage of several glitches. This is particularly notable, as no person has done this sort of exploit in the past. It’s a bit complicated, but you can see how the full process was accomplished below.

We have trailers for the three SNES games that came out on the New 3DS Virtual Console yesterday: Super Mario World, F-Zero, Pilotwings. We’ve rounded them up in the video below.

Well, this is certainly something! A NicoNico user going by the name “Wakou” has used the program Audio Pad to control Mario with sound. That makes him able to play Super Mario World with just his noise and a recorder.

Wakou uses the following commands to control Mario:

“Do” – up
“Mi” – down
“Re” – left
“Fa” – right
“Sol” – b utton
“Ti” – y button


Speedrunner “SethBling” has managed to set a new world record for Super Mario World by taking advantage of a glitch.

SethBling completed the game in four minutes, forty nine seconds. “Jeffw356”, the previous record holder, finished Super Mario World in four minutes, fifty-nine seconds.

As far as the glitch goes… just watch the video above. It’s a bunch of craziness.
