Speedrunner completes all of Ocarina Of Time using only the five-minute demo in Smash Bros. Brawl
Speedrunners are a talented group of people who can time games in record time, but one fan of Ocarina of Time manages to go further.
Within the gaming community, there are those who spend hundreds of hours finding the fastest routes, and the most achievements, in order to complete a title as quickly as possible. Although in itself it could be something of a personal achievement, or an opportunity to break world records and receive accolades, speedrunning took off and became a charitable endeavor, with organizations raising millions for worthy causes. There are many tactics to speed up a game, but most often it means having the full version of the game to start with. However, a Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time fan decided to see if he could complete the game using just the demo.
In a video uploaded to YouTube a few days ago, user Savestate managed to complete the entire Ocarina of time in a record 3:41. The most impressive thing about this exploit is that they managed to do it without using the full version. Instead, they took the five-minute demo and decided it would be an ideal opportunity to see if they could get to the closing credits before the timed demo was over. The Savestate attempt was an “any%” race, which means finishing the game as fast as possible without having to complete all the objectives. Essentially, this type of speedrun allows the player to use exploits and jumps to bypass large segments of the game.
For those who are unaware, the Ocarina of time demo was delivered with Brawl Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Wii. Other timed demos, such as Super Mario Bros. 1 and 2, metroid, Earthboundand even Pac manwere included in the game. The fact that Savestate was able to complete the entire OOT in a limited amount of time shows an incredible amount of skill and knowledge of the N64 title.
While this is very impressive, it’s actually not the first time someone has tried this. In August, another user managed to beat the Ocarina of time demo in the limit too. Although this other person managed to complete it in less than five minutes, literally nine seconds before time ran out, it’s not as close as this retry, which the title of the video marks as a new world record. world.
With the classic The Legend of Zelda game now available on Switch, along with a slew of other Nintendo 64 games, the 23-year-old adventure title is back in vogue, making it readily available for newcomers and older fans looking for that nostalgic shot . Others may attempt new world records, but it will take a lot to surpass Savestate’s mega-fast performance.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is available on Nintendo 64 and 3DS, as well as the Nintendo Switch.
