When Gymnast86 beat The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword in under five hours back in February, we all thought that was a crazy and one-of-a-kind world record not to be beaten for some time. But on August 26th, someone went ahead and did just that, beating Gymnast86’s world record by getting a 4:58:10.
A speedrunner by the name of Nimzo9 has gone forth and taken the record by Gymnast86, beating it by 1 minute and 31 seconds! I am excited for the future of this game and excited to see how far the runners can bring the time down.
