The latest Super Mario Bros. world record run shouldn’t have been possible : There’s a reasonable chance that no one will ever beat the new world record run of Super Mario Bros. This week, a speedrunner who goes by the name Darbian managed to finish an “any percent” run of the NES classic in 4:57.260.
That’s 4 minutes, 57 seconds and 260 milliseconds. The previous record, also set by Darbian, was 4:57.427. Yes, we’re talking about a difference of less than two-tenths of a second, but once you see the video, you’ll understand why it’s still such a huge deal that he could beat the old record at all:
If it wasn’t clear from the video, there are few, if any, improvements that Darbian could make to this run. Every jump, every enemy killed, every pipe warp – they are all done with nearly robotic precision from the player.
