Of course, the event features runs aside from Zelda.

The event also includes the usual Mega Man Block (Wednesday 9th, 8:35PM), and a TAS Block (Friday 9th, 7:12PM). The event concludes with a Super Metroid Reverse Boss Order run.

As always, there’s much more to the event than what I’ve listed above, so make sure to check out the schedule so you don’t miss out on a run of your favourite game!
