    A BLINDFOLDED SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY SPEEDRUNNER going by the alias of Katun24 managed to beat the game in five hours. Most speedrunners manage to finish Nintendo’s game in less than an hour, but this performance is truly special considering that he couldn’t see a thing.

    While we’re not completely sure if there is a speedrunner subsection entirely devoted to beating Super Mario Odyssey blindfolded, Katun24’s impressive mark of 5:24:18 is now the world record, according to Kotaku.

    The Dutch speedrunner decided to follow some guidelines, such as finishing the game in one sitting. He didn’t use the Assist mode that gives Mario extra health and saves him from dying if falling from a level. But the chief rule for this challenge was that he couldn’t take the blindfold off at any point, for any reason whatsoever. Physiological needs be damned when you are speedrunning, right?
