The Story

Subsequently saving the Mushroom Kingdom from evil Koopa, Bowser, and the rest of its gang in Super Mario 3, our favorite twins, Mario and Luigi needed to get better from their adventures. The magical place Dinosaur Land is what they both agreed as the best place for vacation.

As Mario and Luigi stretched out on the beach taking a relaxing nap, Princess Toadstool vanished, and they learned that it is being apprehended by some evil forces. Mario and Luigi, after hours of searching for their missing friend, found a giant egg in the forest.

Out of the blue the egg hatched, and a young dinosaur named YOSHI popped out, who ensued to tell Mario and Luigi a sad tale, on how does a group of monstrous turtles captured his dinosaur friends and sealed them in similar eggs. 

In Luigi’s astonishment, he exclaimed “Monstrous turtles! Then Bowser and his hordes have returned!" Mario, upon agreeing, nodded his head slowly and along with Luigi and Yoshi, they all set off across the Dinosaur Land in order to find the Princess and also to be able to free Yoshi's friends. As they began their adventures, a beautiful cape was handed by Yoshi to Mario. Yoshi said that some says that the cape has a magical powers and it can help Mario along the way.

Fortunately, and with the help from a magical cape, our loving and vigorous crew can now defeat Bowser's Krazy Koopa Kritters’ seven worlds.  Lots locations are hidden so well, that’s why players must explore everywhere and try everything. But not all locations must be explored in order to rescue the dinosaurs and save Princess Toadstool, yet of course, there are a lot of  "starry" treasures can be found in every far-reaching places. In Super Mario World, to be able to find out what kinds of treasure are in there, you'll need to search all the areas.
