The Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World compilation cartridge was bundled with the Super NES "Mario Set" sometime after the SNES's initial release. This game takes Super Mario World and plugs it into the Super Mario All-Stars game selection menu.

A different Luigi

Interestingly enough, Nintendo of America altered Luigi's appearance in Super Mario World while combining it with Super Mario All-Stars. The original (SMW) Luigi had the same sprites as Mario, just with a different color scheme. The "new" (SMAS+SMW) Luigi is taller and slimmer, looking more like the Luigi in SMW promotional artwork.

As you can see below, I've done a few sprite comparisons so you can see all the subtle changes. Some not-so-subtle changes worth pointing out: While jumping, Luigi kicks his legs back on the way up, and then descends in a sitting position; in the death animation, all green on Luigi's face was removed (an improvement, in my opinion); while throwing a fireball, Luigi scrunches up quite a bit; Luigi now slides down slopes on his knees; after clearing a stage, Luigi crosses his arms instead of flashing the V-sign.

I'm-a Luigi, player two!
