Way back in May 2014, TheMexicanRunner began his NESMania project with the ultimate objective of completing every single officially licensed western NES game live on Twitch. That's a whopping 714 games in total, in case you were wondering.

After three epic years, he's now one game away from achieving that goal. He's racked up a staggering 3000 hours of gameplay during this epic quest, and on February 26th at 12 PM EST, he will sit down to play - and complete, we don't doubt - Super Mario Bros. 3, arguably one of the console's best titles.

By the end of play on the 26th - barring some terrible natural disaster - TheMexicanRunner will become the first person to beat every single NES game and stream it live - that's quite an accomplishment. You can watch events unfold on Twitch, and check out all of his previous videos over on this YouTube channel.
