Official artworks of Mario’s journey in Super Mario World (1990).
look at all he’s done for you
Oh, right, these arts are from the strategy guide that I bought when my parents said I couldn’t have an SNES for Christmas, and so I memorized the entire thing so I could live the experience of Super Mario World vicariously, only for my parents to get me an SNES anyway, and for me to be incredibly bored as I played through the entire thing because I knew every damn thing.
Still have that guide.
I like how terrified Mario looks in all of these, and also how Luigi shows up in the first one all “No Idea. I’m out.”
