2 Off topic changes I want to throw in
1 - Jim Henson lives 1 more year. The Muppets are sold to Disney 13 years earlier than OTL.
2 - A Transformers Generation 2 cartoon is greenlit and will premiere in 1992.
 
Also Crazy Bus is quietly released in 1991. The game ends up becoming a cult classic due to it's innovative racing gameplay and great soundtrack. It is often on lists of the greatest racing games of all time.

I see what you did...that 'joke' didn't happen till 2004 anyway
 
Changes to 1990 in film
DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp makes more at the box office. A Darkwing Duck movie is greenlit shortly after.
Jaws 5 is released straight to VHS. The movie was terrible and currently has a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.
 
Even with the Nintendo leaks of 2020,
I wonder if Super Mario World: Super Mario Bros. 3 still uses the old concepts and unused ideas from gigaleak like Luigi giving middle finger when he rides a yoshi and Bowser getting out of his clown car, and possibly a elder yoshi?
 
Information About BowserQuest 2 and Super Mario World
BowserQuest 2: Way of the Koopa Warrior
This is one of the launch titles for the SANAVS and a sequel to BowserQuest. Here in this game, Bowser joins forces with his long-lost twin brother (Nise A. Zure), a volcano-headed "scientist" (Volcanard Vast), and a very busty dragon girl (Pyronica Doragon) and go through five different realms, each based around the five elements of the Wuxing (Chinese philosophy), two other unrelated realms, the Hall of Records, and then outer space to butt heads with the evil, eccentric, zany, egotistic, and incompetent mad scientist who is the leader of the Warpass Gang known as Dr. Dokan.

Anyway, let’s introduce the new playable characters!

Nise A. Zure - Bowser’s long-lost brother who’s gotten a presumably mechanical hand on his right arm that can change into any useful weapon or tool (For example, a sword or a cannon blaster), all thanks to Morton "Master M." Koopa the 2nd (the biological father of the Koopalings, and Glenda G. Koopa was the biological mother of the Koopalings). He is considered the brains to Bowser's brawn, and also a calm guy at that.

Volcanard Vast - Some volcano-headed “scientist”. He is once a scientist who learned about volcanoes, until he got mutated to have a volcano on top of his head. After an unusual experience like that, he starts becoming very awkward with his volcano powers. He also attacks with his volcano head by shouting out the word "Krakatoa!"

Pyronica Doragon - She's a very busty dragon girl specialized in physical combat. Very trustworthy and quirky, while also being tomboyish. She's got some moves she has with her, by the way.​

Anyways, let’s get to the stages!
  • Intro Stage: Isolated Planet (An isolated planet) (Koopaling Summon: N/A) (Boss: Big Warpassbot (A bigger version of the Warpassbot enemies))
  • Realm 1: Metal Mountain (A mountain world made from metal) (Koopaling Summon: Iggy Koopa) (Boss: Midbus (who debuted in Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story IOTL))
  • Realm 2: Aquatic Dome (An underwater world surrounded by a dome) (Koopaling Summon: Morton Koopa Jr.) (Boss: Orca-Stra (A mutated orca whale who wants to put on an orchestra in the Aquatic Dome because he doesn’t seem to find any orchestra underwater))
  • Realm 3: Treetop Towers (A jungle world filled with trees) (Koopaling Summon: Lemmy Koopa) (Boss: Krazy Katana (A katana-wielding tanuki samurai with a powerful slash from a sword))
  • Realm 4: Red Hot Fire Zone (An underground world filled with fire) (Koopaling Summon: Ludwig Von Koopa) (Boss: Infernmenace (This is what he looks like))
  • Realm 5: Terra Gorge (A mountain world set in the skies) (Koopaling Summon: Kamek (who’s obviously not a Koopaling)) (Boss: Loud Shocker (A harpy girl who’s very loud and has thunder abilities))
  • Realm 6: Frozen Caverns (A snow world known for its blizzards) (Koopaling Summon: Roy Koopa) (Boss: Blizzard Midbus (Refer to Midbus if you can))
  • Realm 7: Rumbling Streets (A city world filled with many roads to go through) (Koopaling Summon: Wendy O. Koopa) (Boss: The Streetwise Biker Gang (Just a group of demented bikers who vandalize the Rumbling Streets))
  • Realm 8: The Hall of Records (Some Hidden Palace Zone-esque location filled with many memories archived) (Koopaling Summon: Larry Koopa) (Boss: No actual boss, just a boss rush of the previous bosses in this game)
  • Final Realm: Warpass Space Station (Somewhere set in outer space!) (Koopaling Summon: All of the Koopalings (and also Kamek)) (First Boss: Volcano Infernmenace (This is a transformed version of Infernmenace where he’s got a fire motif, just to compliment Blizzard Midbus)) (Second and Final Boss: Dr. Dokan (the one who leads the Warpass Gang and he looks like a demented version of Mario as a mad scientist))
So yeah, now for the gameplay, same as the previous BowserQuest, except with more control and more boss fight variety on the gameplay. Now for the other one.
Super Mario World: Super Mario Bros. 3
Before this goes on, this is one of the launch titles for the SANAVS, but you’ll see what I got.

Ok, now get this. It’s the same as it was IOTL, except there are now more dinosaurs! And also the old concepts and unused ideas from the Gigaleak, and some of my original ideas.

What’s the story like? Well, it’s the same as OTL’s Super Mario World storyline, except there are some differences to be found. For example, Toad was there and he’s a NPC where he gives out some hints to any of the playable characters or says some witty things about certain stuff. Also, there’s some escaped Yoshis asking the Mario Brothers for help before they get captured by some of Tyrano's troops (after beating the first world boss, that is). (It can be shown visually as well in the ITTL version of Super Mario Advance 2, BTW).

First off, the playable characters. They were Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Princess Daisy (the former two are available from the start, while Princess Peach has to be rescued in the World 1 castle in order to play as her and Princess Daisy has to be found in one of the levels in World 3 in order to play as her).

Next up are the worlds (and the bosses).
  1. World 1: Yoshi’s Island (Castle Boss: Bowser Imposter)
  2. World 2: Bronto Plains (Donut Plains IOTL) (Ghost Secret House Boss: The Big Boo (same as OTL)) (Castle Boss: Commander Bro.)
  3. World 3: Crystal Dome (Vanilla Dome IOTL) (Fortress Boss: Trident the Triceratops (he fights like OTL’s Morton Jr./Roy)) (Castle Boss: The Great Blaarg)
  4. World 4: Twin Bridges (Castle Boss: Big Bertha) (Secret Boss: Mighty Shellstein (who fights like OTL’s Ludwig Von) (Here’s a subtle difference from OTL, Butter Bridge is known as “Pterano Bridge”, Cheese Bridge is known as “Stego Bridge”, Soda Lake is known as “Torpedo Lake”, and Cookie Mountain is known as “Jurassic Mountain”)
  5. World 5: Forest of Illusion (Fortress Boss: Pteresa the Pteranodon (she fights like OTL’s Lemmy/Wendy O.) (Castle Boss: King Boo (who debuted in Luigi’s Mansion IOTL))
  6. World 6: Fossil Island (Chocolate Island IOTL) (Fortress Boss: Reznor (same as OTL) (Castle Boss: The Reznor King)
  7. World 7: Valley of Tyrano (Valley of Bowser IOTL) (Fortress Boss: Spinosis the Spinosaurus (he fights like OTL’s Iggy/Larry)) (Castle Boss: Copycat) (Final Boss: Tyrano (he fights like OTL’s Bowser, and since Princess Peach is already playable ITTL, you have to rescue who else but Pauline)
  8. World 8: Star World (same as OTL)
  9. World 9: Special World (same as OTL)
Here are some differences from OTL, there are returning enemies that never been used IOTL such as Goombas, Chain Chomps, Hammer Bros., and Bloopers, new enemies based on more dinosaurs such as a pterodactyl, a stegosaurus, the tyrannosaurus rexes from OTL’s Super Mario World DiC cartoon, and the Chickadactyl (also OTL’s Super Mario World DiC cartoon), additional power-ups such as the Super Leaf and a shield power-up that deflects enemy projectiles, additional friendly NPCs such as an elder Yoshi, additional enemies such as the Skeeters, Sushis, Bullies, and Amps (all four of these debuted in Super Mario 64 IOTL), the ability to ride on Bowser on certain levels, and also some additional musical pieces too!

Also, Luigi is his own man rather than being a Mario palette swap. That is all.

Now, let’s get to 1992.
 
For 1991 I will prevent Yo Yogi! and The Jerry Springer Show from getting made. Thus 2 of the dumbest shows I have ever seen have been removed from existence.

This is not your TL, stop overspamming it.

Again neither was a bad show at the time(example here yo yogi was popular in old CN before moved to boomerang and them tooncast)

Just throwing some stuff in. AH 1's is cancelled(I don't care for post 2000 music) and NAHMT is back on hiatus. I plan on doing more stuff with IAD80 basketball but that doesn't have general pop culture.
 
1992: CDs for the 16-Bit Wonder
Now, back to Nintendo, and Atari. You see, despite the SANAVS’s recent release, the ANAVS is still going strong, with some known releases such as a sequel to Atari’s Crystal Castles. Also Disney’s Darkwing Duck too. And a few games that I have missed.

Right now, notable releases for the SANAVS are Luigi’s Adventure: Mario is Missing! (Which unlike IOTL, is not an educational game, but an actual 2D platformer game), Super Mario Kart (P.S.: it’s subtly different from OTL. Each Battle Course has a different piece of music, there are icebergs instead of Pipes in the Vanilla Lake racetracks, Goombas appear as hazards in the Mario Circuit racetracks (starting with the third one), and the Fire Flower is one of the items (and how it works is by throwing three fireballs at the racer)), Super Scope 6, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Yoshi’s Cookie, and other games that were released by other companies. Plus, the Game Boy introduces a new Nintendo IP, and he’s a round pink puffball that can inhale and conquer, his name is Kirby. He’s from Kirby’s Dream Land. Also, there’s Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (the debut of Wario).

After the fallout with Sony, Nintendo and Philips released the Super-CD, a CD-based add-on for the SANAVS to compete with Sega’s offering. Right now, there have been rumors about Nintendo and Philips collaborating on some Super-CD-exclusive games for their IPs, but who knows? Let’s find out!

Now, as for NEC, the TurboGrafx-16 has better advertising than it does IOTL. However, it still ceased production in 1994.

Also, what does the Super-CD look like? Let’s find out!
