The flagship product at the launch of the Super NES, Super Mario World showed off the system. The game was a pack in almost every region, and ultimately would drive sales of the system. This Mario game featured Yoshi, the green dinosaur that would eat almost anything. Mario also gained the ability to glide with a magic cape. This is the first Mario game that featured more than one exit in levels, which added to the replay value. In total, there are 96 different exits to find.
