Super Mario World 5 or New Super Mario Bros. 5 (スーパーマリオワールド5 or ニュースーパーマリオブラザーズ5) is the sequel to Yoshi's New Island (Super Mario World 4) and also the sequel to New Super Mario Bros. U (New Super Mario Bros. 4), hence its name.



Mario and his friends receive a letter from Yoshi. The letter says that Yoshi is going to have a baby, so Mario, Luigi. Peach and the Toads go to Dinosaur Land. However, the group fall into a trap that Bowser has set. After that, Bowser kidnaps Peach and the Toads yet again. Worlds and levels present in Dinosaur Land are different between Super Mario World and this game because the worlds in this game are on original regions (Grassy Plain and Shiny Sea are around the Donut Plain area; Deep Pit is by Vanilla Dome area; High Bridge and Rocky Mountain are on Cookie Mountain; Great Tree is near the Forest of Illusion area; Gloomy Mine is on a little unknown island and Magic Rainbow is in an unknown area.


After liberating all the Yoshis,Mario (and Luigi) go to Bowser's underground castle (in Gloomy Mine) to beat him and free Princess Peach and the Toads. Then the team returns to Yoshi's village to watch Yoshi's new eggs hatch.


The object of the game is to get Yoshi's eggs to advance to the next level. If the player collects enough points, a bonus level will start between levels. Each world is composed of several levels, all of which must be completed (except bonus levels and secret levels).
