Here’s a short, non-exhaustive list of things that take less than four minutes and 55 seconds to do. I devour a plate of loaded nachos. I eat a whole bowl of pasta (maybe a carbonara?). I’m writing a lede while I’m busy eating lunch. And a speed runner that flashes through Super Mario Bros., hitting a new time in Nintendo’s all-time classic side-scroller.

yes the best Mario Speedrunner Niftski completed a sub-five-minute run this weekend, breaking the existing world record by less than a second. The “any%” run – this term means that it’s super cool to skip sections of the game – came in at an impressive 4:54,798.

Niftski, who keeps streaming Pull out and youtubehas gained a following for completing all sorts of speed running feats Super Mario Bros., and is also responsible for the game’s previous world record of 4:54.881, set last winter. (Here is a video of that run.) This final pass truncates a total of five frames from Niftski’s previous pass—This is the level of precision we’re talking about here. It’s really crazy. See for yourself:

Throughout the run, Niftski utilizes Warp Zones – hidden areas that allow you to jump into the later worlds of the game – and makes sure to land right at the bottom of the flag at the end of each stage. (Everyone Super Mario Bros. Level ends when you jump on the flagpole at the end; Mario slides down the bar before proceeding to the next level, which eats up precious seconds.) You’ll also notice that Niftski plays with a keyboard, not a gamepad.

“The emulation for this game is 100% accurate, which means anything that can be done on a NES can be done on this one [an] Emulator,” Niftski said in the YouTube video’s description. “[Using a] The keyboard offers no benefit and is in fact debatably inferior to the speedrunning of this game. I use [a] keyboard over [a] Responsible for reasons of personal preference.”

These running edges Super Mario Bros. Speedrunning closer and closer to the abyss of a “perfect run” or sprint through the game literally couldn’t be improved at all. The tool supports SMEs record is 4:54:265, showing that human players are still a little over half a second behind. If a perfect run is ever going to happen, I’ll bet on Niftski or this Mario speed runner minilandwho stopped World record before Niftski with 4:54.914.

“As this run completes, we are currently 0.533 seconds from TAS,” noted one commenter on YouTube. “All these 0.1 second barriers will happen one day, and then we will achieve perfection.” New Super Mario Bros. world record half a second after perfect run
