We often find ourselves marvelling at the skill and dedication required to pull off a successful speedrunning attempt here at Nintendo Life, and this case is no different.

LilKirbs14, a speedrunner who's relatively new to the scene, has been attempting to take the top spot for Super Mario Odyssey's 'Any%' record for a little while now. Not too long ago, one of his attempts missed that target by an agonising six seconds, but he's now managed to fully achieve the dream. Luckily for all of us, the video below shows the entire run - perhaps this is one to stream to the TV tonight for family dinner time.

The run successfully takes the crown away from all-star NicroVeda, pushing the fastest completion time down to an incredible 1:01:42 at the time of writing, and has been particularly noteworthy because of LilKirbs14's relative lack of speedrunning experience. By this, we mean his lack of experience compared to bigger names in the speedrunning community - he does also hold second place runs in the New Super Mario Bros. U and Super Mario Maker Any% categories, so he's quickly working his way up.

As ever, feel free to share your thoughts with us in the comments below. Would you be brave enough to attempt at speedrun on one of your favourite games?
