While everyone was speedrunning Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a new Wind Waker HD record was set



In several ways, this new record for The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HDis nothing short of a miracle. There’s a few close shaves, but ultimately,gymnast86, who also competed heavily and consistently came out on top in the initial salvo of Breath of the Wildspeedruns, manages to nail it at 1:35:57.

In case you aren’t aware of the typical path, it goes from Outset island, to the Forsaken Fortress, to Windfall, then Dragon Roost Island/Cavern, some item collection, and then Hyrule Castle for the final encounter.The main mechanic used to traverse everything so quickly is called “Superswimming,” which allows players to shoot like a rocket across the water without a raft.

Nearly every any % Zeldarun has its own tricks, and this hour and a half video is one of the most condensed ways you can get your Wind Wakerfix.
