Super Mario Odyssey

We normally look to games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for brand new fan discoveries, but today it's Super Mario Odyssey's turn to hog the limelight.

A speedrunner going by the name of Xdxboxjaja has uploaded the following clip online, giving us a good look at what appears to be a brand new wall clip discovery. It can be performed in the Snow Kingdom and allows a player to grab that world's 18th Power Moon, 'Ice-Dodging Goomba Stack' in record time.

Usually, you'd have to capture a Goomba, jump on more of them to create a stack of four, then work your way over to a button to reveal the Moon (full guides to each of the game's Moons can be found here). With this new method, however, you can skip all of this and simply use Mario's jumping abilities to go straight through a wall.

Xdxboxjaja believes that the new discovery should shave off around eight seconds for any speedrunners focusing on beating the game in the fastest time possible. Even if you're not a speedrunner, though, you can still have a bit of fun trying to pull this off.

Just a few weeks ago, another Super Mario Odyssey player found a way to skip a good chunk of the final boss battle.
