A fact that only happened in the first version of Super Nintendo

Mario has starred in a huge number of games that have made a place for themselves in the history of the best products that Nintendo has developed. We have one of the best examples with Super Mario World, the legendary 2D platform adventure that was one of the first titles that received Super Nintendo in the 90swhich was also a very amazing evolution compared to the NES deliveries.

This game in question served to meet characters as beloved as Yoshi for the first time, as well as other allies and enemies that Mario encountered during his trip to rescue Princess Peach. One of them were the Dolphins, which had a very characteristic and comical design due to the glasses they were wearing. Their reception was so good that since then they have had many appearances in many other Mario and company games.

In the case of Super Mario World, these appeared in a couple of phases and served as a means of transportation for our intrepid plumber, since it was possible to climb on top of them and jump from one to another to cross the level. So far so good, but what is very striking is that the parades suffered censorship in international versions.

The reason was because in the original Japanese version, Yoshi was capable of using his tongue to eat any enemy, including the dolphins themselves, which incidentally made these screens a little more complicated. However, when it was released in the West it was considered that This fact could hurt sensitivitiesso the possibility of Yoshi being able to feed on these endearing animals was eliminated, which incidentally served to make the phases easier.

However, this only happened in the Super Mario World original. In Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2the Game Boy Advance version, there was no censorship of any kind in any of the world versions, so Yoshi was able to swallow the dolphins again.
