There's a new world record for getting all 120 stars in Super Mario 64 quickly — and it's kind of amazing that it happened at all.
Yesterday, a speedrunner known as Nero raced against other speedrunner, Puncayshun. The goal was to see who could get to 120 stars first — that is, to try to beat each other. And despite saving and quitting during his run twice — which added to his overall run time — Nero not only managed to beat Puncayshun, he also got a record time for completion (1:42:15.92). You can watch the entire run here:
According to Speedrun.com, the previous record was held by puncayshun, in a run that clocked in at 1:42:32. This new run by nero is an improvement by seconds, but that's all it takes!
