Niftski Breaks The Super Mario Bros. Speedrun Record With A Perfect Run

1 month ago   |   By GameInformer

Twitch streamer and speedrunner Niftski has demolished the world record for a speedrun in Super Mario Bros., clocking in what's being called a “perfect” run at 4:54.948. That's right, four minutes and fifty-four seconds, with a little bit of change. I don't know when the last time you decided to take a trip through the Mushroom Kingdom was, but that's fast... really, really fast. THE 55 BARRIER IS FINALLY BROKEN! This is the single greatest accomplishment out of anything I've ever done with this game! Huge thanks to everyone who supported me on this grind!!
