Super Mario 64 has long been a popular game for speedrunning, and the title has had many world records attached to its name. Another has just been added, and it was rather unexpected.

On 26th February two speedrunners known as Nero and Puncayshun raced to see who could collect the game's 120 power stars first. Despite saving and quitting twice throughout his run Nero still came out on top, with a masterful completion time of one hour, 42 minutes and 15 seconds. This time improved upon Puncayshun's previously held record of one hour, 42 minutes and 32 seconds, by a mere 17 seconds.

You can watch Nero's entire speedrun below and admire the latest world record.
