Watch This Guy Beat Majora’s Mask In Under 2 Hours
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is a deceptively lengthy title. The game may only have four dungeons, but its wide variety of side quests ensures that you’ll spend 20 to 30 hours finding everything in the game. What if you ignored those side quests though? Could you beat the game’s four dungeons in a quarter of the time? How about less than 2 hours?
Kotaku reports that Swedish speedrunner EnNopp112 has been beating his own Majora’s Mask speedrun world records since the start of the year. His latest attempt saw him beat his own record again with a time of 1 hour, 28 minutes and 51 seconds. It should be noted that no cheats are allowed in this speedrun, but in-game exploits and glitches are. Speedrunners frequently exploit these glitches to skip large portions of the game and it’s entirely legitimate. It’s also incredibly impressive.
If that’s not impressive enough for you, EnNopp112 also holds the world record for a 100 percent speedrun of Majora’s Mask. Typically, a complete playthrough of the game would take anywhere from 20 to 30 hours. EnNopp 112 managed to complete the entire game in a little under 5 hours and 30 minutes.
Here’s his record breaking any completion speedrun:
And here’s his 100 percent speedrun:
Last year, famed Zelda speedrunner Cosmo Wright beat The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in less than 20 minutes. He still holds that record. As for Majora’s Mask, his only attempt resulted in a completion time of 3 hours and 11 minutes. This puts him at rank 97 on the Majora’s Mask speedrun leaderboards and it’s unknown if he’ll try to climb those ranks.
