New Super Mario Bros. Wii World Record Set

Wa-Hoo!

Twin Galaxies has recently verified a new official Twin Galaxies World Record score for New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

The score-keeping network has received numerous submissions for the game since release, with the record changing hands dozens of times between gamers from the US, Canada and Holland, and is now logging scores of significant value.

The latest record was set by Brandon LeCroy, a 32-year-old from Walhalla, South Carolina, who reached a score of 3,647,680 in just one life over two and a half hours of playtime.

The rules dictate that the scoring ends after the loss of the first life or when the game is completed. Players must not travel through walls which they cannot normally do so (such as Bowser's Castle) and wandering respawning enemies can be targeted for point pressing. Re-entry of a stage is permitted once, but upon return exit must be made through the secondary goal.

Second place is currently held by Dennis Weaver from Columbus, Ohio, who recorded a score of 3,162,030. Rounding out the Top 10 is Bobby Brady from Detroit, Michigan, who set a score 279,020.

Highlights of the record-beating score, and hints on how it is achievable, are shown in video below.

@V8 Ninja. I did spend a good bit of time researching areas to press. But I'm sure the time I spent doing it was WAY less than the time and average WoW player has on his account! Thanks for the congrats guys.

Why was there a mouse scrolling on the screen at one point? How did he die like that? Weak. Must of got bored. Good score nonetheless.

@wardy The mouse came from when I was editing it. Was using a screen capture program to make my editing easier to go from DVD to wmv. And death was too sad. But 3 days after this post, the record was broke yet again putting JD Lowe back on top with a 3.8 run ending at the air ship in world 4.

@Stardust They don't host them but they do keep up with the records. Where I have lost the points record, I still have the speed run record.
