Super Mario Bros 2

Super Mario Bros 2 World Speedrun Record Broken

Super Mario Bros 2 has often been criticized for not being an ‘official’ Super Mario Bros title, as it was adapted from a Japanese game known as Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic due to the ‘original’ Super Mario Bros sequel (later releasted as Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels) being too difficult; but some player still look to create speedruns of the game.

In this case Super Mario Bros speedrunner whitman_price has managed to set a new world record of managing to complete Super Mario Bros 2 within 10 minutes and 33 seconds; a time which beats the previous 11 minutes and 23 seconds held by Barnowl. It’s an impressive time, especially as it takes me 10 minutes just to get past the few opening levels, and it’s even more impressive when you notice the mistakes that whiman_price made during the playthrough.
