Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

A Platform game for Super NES by Nintendo in the Super Mario series

Baby Luigi has been kidnapped! Help the Yoshis and Baby Mario traverse Yoshi's Island to rescue him from the evil Kamek and Baby Bowser.

When it was released in 1995, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island represented a landmark moment in gaming: it marked the zenith of the 2-D Super Mario games and is widely-considered to be the pinnacle of the platform genre and one of the finest gems of the sixteen-bit era. With elements such as an artistic, coloring bok-like graphical style, a whimsical environment, expansive level design, and one of composer Koji Kondo's best offerings, *Yoshi's Island is a fitting capstone to the era of gaming when 2D roamed the Earth.

Trivia

The game's unique graphical style is said to have resulted from a conflict within the Nintendo development house. Instructed to give the game a prerendered graphical style similar to the recently released and wildly successful Donkey Kong Country, producer Shigeru Miyamoto instead opted for a more cartoon-like style, with levels and platforms looking as if they had been drawn with crayons and felt-pens as if out of a children's story book.1*

News & Blogs

There are at least two timelines on the Internet that put the major Super Mario games in chronological order, as if they happened to one guy named Mario who has been living an extraordinary life.

These timeline don't present Mario as a real man. The people who make these timelines aren't that free-thinking. But the makers of Mario timelines have asked questions that most people have lived their lives without asking, questions like: Does Super Mario Bros. 3 really take place after Super Mario Bros. 2?

Is Yoshi's Island included in the 3DS "ambassador" package?

BlogSuper Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island is a true masterpiece. Everything comes together so nicely -- style, music, gameplay, level design -- to make it one of the very best platform games in the midst of a golden age of platformers. That the GBA re-release would be included in the "ambassador" package of 20 games given to current 3DS owners who payed $80 too much for their systems gave at least some small level of solace.

But will Yoshi's Island be included? Read on
