AGDQ 2023 is underway right now, and if you haven’t watched it yet, you’ve missed out on some blistering speed runs from the world’s best runners. And yesterday a brand new world record was set Super Mario Galaxy 2 at the charity speedrunning event.
The new record was set by Hey — who actually broke his own world record by 4.4 seconds. The entry is now valid 2:54:51.33 in Any% (With Bank). What does Any% (With Bank) actually mean? This is a special category which means you don’t have to do or collect everything, you just have to beat the game, but the only requirement is to use the Bank Toad to unlock the last galaxy.
What makes this record even more impressive is not only that Jhay was playing the game in front of a live audience of tens of thousands on GDQ Twitch (the event is remote), but Jai took the record while competing against three other Super Mario Galaxy 2 speed runners — Mutants Abyss, HardcoreGamingand SuperViperT302.
It is safe to say that Jai, who hails from Wales and already holds 7/9 world records in both Super Mario Galaxy and the sequel, is quite happy to accept this tweet. We don’t blame him for celebrating.
The entire nearly 3-hour speedrun event is worth watching as all four runners demonstrate some incredible skills and techniques. You can monitor the speed on Twitch (where the embed should be time stamped) and we’ll update this post with the YouTube link when it’s uploaded!
And there are plenty of other speed races running until the early hours of Sunday morning (UK time), so be sure to check out our pick of the races to look out for:
