How to Save in Super Mario World
How to Save?
Super Mario World doesn’t have a traditional save feature like other Super Nintendo games. To save, you must beat either a castle, fortress, or ghost house. Doing so will prompt you with the options of “Continue and Save” or “Continue without Save”.
If you can’t beat the levels leading up to the next save point, you always have to option of replaying a ghost house you’ve already beaten. You are able to replay one of the previously beaten castles or fortresses (ghost houses can always be replayed without pressing anything extra), by pressing L + R to select the level. Only ghost houses though will give you the option to save the game again. This makes it easier to save current level progress instead of trying over and over to beat the levels ahead of you.
