Decades after the game’s original release, fans have managed to get their hands on the prototype Super Mario World map.
You may remember Nintendo’s “gigaleak” which took place between 2018 and 2020. A ton of information about previously released games was revealed, including prototypes, source code, and much more.
This is where the prototype map for Super Mario World came from. When originally spotted in Nintendo’s leak, the damaged graphics prevented us from seeing what the design actually looked like. However, hacker and researcher codfish1002 managed to fix Map-B’s issues, giving us a glimpse of the map made in 1989. Twitter user MrTalida shared the image.
Please note that the image above is a graphic layout file only. Since there’s no level data included, it’s not really playable.
Although it’s very old at this point, a decent amount of Super Mario World news has been shared over the years. In addition to what was learned from the “gigaleak”, a localization prototype was shared a few months ago; we have more on that. here.
Super Mario World was originally released in 1990 in Japan and the following year in North America. If you have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription, you can now play it on your current Nintendo console.
