Speedrunner Finishes ‘Breath of the Wild’ In Little Over An Hour

Breath of the Wild Any% Speedrun in 1:05:17Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/venick Twitter: https://twitter.com/Venick409 The run is in French because they talk faster, so the cutscenes with voice acting are faster. I chose not to use an Amiibo this time because I only have the one for Epona. It seemed silly to run with Amiibo and only save 20-30 seconds, when optimally you would use them to save 3+ minutes with all of them. This run has a couple deaths in the Overworld, however beats the end boss without a death, saving a ton of time. I also made a bunch of new strats and rerouted parts of it to save time and/or make it safer. A good start, but a long way to go. I don't see sub 1 taking very long to get from here.2017-03-07T18:09:12.000Z

The Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild features the biggest world ever seen in a Zelda game by far but that doesn’t stop people from speedrunning the game.

Once you finish the Great Plateau area, you are able to head straight to Hyrule Castle to defeat Ganon. Players who speedrun will go there with three heart containers and a single stamina upgrade.

Many players have attempted the speedrun the world record is currently 1:05:17 held by YouTube user Venick409.

GameFaqs user JerickoX shared his experience of running straight to Ganon here.
