This Zelda Breath of the Wild fan makes short work of the game.

This Zelda Breath of the Wild fan makes short work of the game.

According to howlongtobeat.com, anyone who wants to play through The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild usually needs between 50 and 100 hours. But due to the open structure of the open world title, the credits and thus the end can be reached much faster. You can go straight to Ganon’s Castle once you’ve completed the Ancient Plateau and bagged the Parasail. There are some fans who are having fun trying to achieve that as soon as possible. One of them even 50 times a day.

Zelda BotW: This fan can do it 50 times in under 23 hours

That’s what it’s about: Zelda fans who just can’t get enough of Breath of the Wild often turn to the speedrun community. The speed runners try to get through the game as quickly as possible and use a wide variety of categories to do so.

If the goal is simply to see the credits as soon as possible (that is, Any%, as opposed to the 100% category, which requires everything to be done in-game), that’s where it’s at World record currently under 24 minutes (via: Speedrun.com).

That sounds particularly blatant if you (like me) have spent well over 200 hours on one run. But for speedrunners like Player 5, rushing through the world of Hyrule at breakneck speed is nothing special anymore. That’s why many speedrunners succumb other additional challenges on.

Player 5 has now made it, for example, Zelda BotW Play through a whopping 50 times in one day. His fastest run was 24:16 and his longest was 25:23. This is extremely consistent and shows how much practice the speed runner has.

For the 50 runs he also has just 22 hours and 34 minutes second hand. By the end of the marathon he was surprisingly composed – no cheers, no shouts of joy, just strict professionalism. Here he thanks everyone who watched and kept him awake:
