I’ve always been fascinated with speedruns of classic Nintendo games, tool-assisted or otherwise. Considering the wealth of games available today, it’s pretty incredible that people are still playing older titles like Super Mario World and coming up with new gameplay methods and glitches. Many of these would likely go undiscovered if it weren’t for the Internet.
Such is the case with this credits warp that YouTube user SethBling recently managed to pull off. It’s an extremely complex glitch that sets up the game’s memory in just the right way which, when pulled off successfully, causes the credits to play without defeating Bowser.
Another user – Jeffw356 – is credited with actually coming up with the method but SethBling is the first to pull it off on an actual Super Nintendo console. His time of 5:59 in the clip above has since been improved to just 3:07.
