The activity of speedrunners does not stop no matter how much time passes or the circumstances of the world are unfavorable. If we recently saw how they had managed to break one of Perfect Dark’s most famous records after 16 years or how they had surprised the creators of Cuphead by completing it in 23 minutes , now comes a new feat . The player Simply, after 8 years of incessant attempts , has managed to break the world record for Super Mario 64 and the moment could not have been more emotional .
In a Twitch broadcast , the young speedrunner can be seen breaking after the incredible 1:38:28 time is confirmed upon completing the game. Their natural reaction after trying for so long does not go unnoticed by their family, who soon arrive to ask about the feat and congratulate them with the same emotion as if the achievement had been achieved by themselves.
Ryan “Simply” Reeves is a well-known speedrunner with a focus on the Nintendo title and his fans are knowledgeable about the goal, so they shared the excitement on streaming . Hailing from Minnesota, USA, he completed it with all 120 stars in a considerably lower time than the previous one , set at 1:38:43, which was obtained by Liam Kings on March 31, 2020.
Here we leave you the complete broadcast and the tweet with the key moment . If you are interested in speedrunning, we recommend that you meet other great milestones such as Shizzal , who managed to break a world record for Portal with solvency and claimed to be able to overcome himself, or like Master_t0rch that finished in just 11 seconds with one of the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s toughest bosses.
