Terebi Denwa: Super Mario World is an arcade game that was released in 1992 by Banpresto.
The game consisted of the player being asked puzzle-based or action-based questions by Mario. Similar to other Terebi Denwa games by Banpresto, the player would listen to characters speak from a telephone-shaped speaker and answer questions by pressing numbered buttons.
Terebi Denwa: Super Mario World was exclusive to Japan and for years its ROM file has never been distributed online. Most game screenshots and video footage are in low quality.
On September 14th, 2023, Phil Bennett announced on Twitter that he dumped the game onto MAME, though stating it wasn't working properly.
