Another Super Mario 64 Fast Racing Category May Be Dead After Player Breaks World Record With Flawless Race

Another category of Super Mario 64 speedrunning might be dead after a player managed to break the world record with an absolutely flawless run.

Super Mario 64 was released in 1996, and to this day players are still competing to see who can finish it the fastest. The classic platformer has multiple speedrun categories based on the number of Power Stars collected. Now, just days after breaking the world record in the 1-star class, a top Super Mario 64 sprinter has also set a new record for a 16-star race, with a finish time that will be almost impossible to beat. on.

That sprinter is none other than Suigi, who managed to win the world’s first 16-star race in less than 2:40 p.m. with a total time of 2:35.50 p.m. The previous record was 14:41.38, which they also held. The speedrunner posted a video of his latest attempt on YouTube, and as the footage shows, it’s a perfect run. “I’m truly speechless,” Suigi says in the video’s description. “It’s the best time I could hope for.”

Amazingly, this is the second Super Mario 64 world record that Suigi has recently held, having just over a week ago completed a 1-Star run in under seven minutes. Speedrun fans were thrilled with the speedrunner’s latest win and, as with 1-Star racing, some believe that remarkably low finish time means the category is now all but dead. Rest in peace 16 stars. It was fun while it lasted,” one fan said in the comments on Twitter. Another wrote, “16 stars is literally over.” While a third called it “one of the races craziest of all time”.

With his latest record at 16 stars, Suigi is happy to have set the best time possible and is now ready for a new challenge. In a tweet, the sprinter said, “First 14:3X, world record, no mistakes. I’m done. Time to keep moving forward.”

Switch to what? We hear you cry. Why 120 star speedruns, of course? According to (opens in a new window), the current world record for this category is 1h 37m 35s, which is incredible. Still, given the skills Suigi has shown so far, we wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up claiming the top spot for this one as well.
