Video: There are few things more satisfying than watching someone tear apart one of your favourite childhood video games.
Thanks to glitches, tricks, and the power of using two controllers at once, speedrunner Yagamoth blazed through the classic Square RPG Secret of Mana in under two hours at Awesome Games Done Quick 2016 last week. If you know the game well, this is incredibly fun to watch: Yagamoth skips over entire chunks of the story — including the Light, Dark and Moon elementals — and breaks almost every sequence. He doesn’t even get a full party until the desert ship.
The ultimate lesson here? Secret of Mana is still awesome and everyone should play it.
