In the Internet age, speed runs have become popular among retro gamers. The thrill of beating a game faster than anyone else certainly seems to have some appeal, as gamers all over the world compete in classic games in order to get the fastest time.

Over the weekend, a new world record was set as Twitch user Darkwing_Duck_sda beat The Legend of Zelda on NES in an incredible 30 minutes and 29 seconds. That same user also holds the previous record of 30 minutes and 37 seconds. Of course, to beat the game in such a quick time frame, shortcuts had to be taken. In this case, there is a glitch that allows Link to travel through certain walls. Without said glitch, the average time to beat The Legend of Zelda increases to about 10 hours. Still, it’s incredibly impressive, either way! If you’re looking to try a Zelda speed run of your own, you can find instructions on how to pull off the maneuver here.
