We wouldn’t have believed you could finish Ocarina of Time this fast

Tuesday, 22nd July 2014 06:44 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time can be completed in under 20 minutes – a far cry from the dozen or so hours you probably spent on it.

Speedrunner Cosmo Wright set a new world record for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time this weekend, reaching the end credits in 18:10. Wright also held the previous records, which were only longer by a few seconds.

Wright broadcast his record-breaking run on Twitch, so you can watch below. It’s interesting how he talks about how practicing and re-playing the game has helped him improve – shaving his time down by seconds at a time.

    Playing the buggy Japanese version and exploiting bugs doesn’t count. Timing something to the frame to commit an exploit should require you to go outside and throw a ball against a wall instead of playing video games.

    @Doppleganger I assume this is bait, but I’ll bite anyways.
    Firstly, this is the Chinese version for the Nintendo iQue. The only difference is the speed of the text.
    Secondly, why does speedrunning offend you so much? Did you get stuck in the water temple as a kid?
