Nine Zelda titles have made it into this year’s Summer Games Done Quick schedule, including a Legend of Zelda Low% race, an Ocarina of Time Bingo Run, and, most notably, a Wind Waker HD Any% run, the first since the discovery of a glitch called Barrier Skip which introduced a huge luck factor in the run, now mitigated by a new discovery, Morth Hover. These Zelda runs will take place alongside lesser-seen runs, such as Four Swords Adventures Any% and Oracle of Seasons Any%, as well as other popular runs, including Super Mario Odyssey Any%, a Mega Man 8 Any% race, and Super Monkey Ball 2 All Levels.
Skyward Sword will also be featured in the line-up, its first appearance since Summer 2014. Since then, the run has been cut down by over an hour, with runner Gymnast86 achieving the first sub-5 hour run last February. Gymnast86 is also scheduled to run Majora’s Mask 3D Any%, in which he currently sits 2nd in the leaderboard.
Games Done Quick is a bi-annual speedrunning marathon held in varying locations in North America. To date, it has raised over $14.5 million for charities Doctors Without Borders and The Prevent Cancer Foundation. Summer Games Done Quick is held in the summer of each year, while its sister event, Awesome Games Done Quick, is held in January.
Summer Games Done Quick will run from June 24th to July 1st. The full games list and schedule can be found here.
