This Gameboy classic has a speedrunning community, and we’re not talking about Pokémon.
It’s Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins and speedrunner slashinfty did a run for AGDQ 2018 in January. SML2 is one of the games I got with my first Gameboy and I never completed it (until last year thanks to the Virtual Console and save states) so I was intrigued by a speedrun. The run was Any% Glitchless which means no glitches are allowed as the name suggests. This is the most common category of any speedrun and comes with a lot of time shaving and strategy. But for AGDQ, it’s a one-off run for charity and we’re provided with some great singing from fellow runner, Iceplug. Seriously, when you hear the Star Song, you will fall in love.
Anyway, stream it below and enjoy.
