Yesterday we reported that speedrunner Kosmic was temporarily believed to have broken the record for the fastest time beating the original Super Mario Bros., only to discover the he actually only tied it. While that alone is impressive, Kosmic wasn’t satisfied, and he got right back to work trying to set a new world record.
Less than a week after his tying run, Kosmic has improved his top speed of 4:57.244 to 4:57.194. Shaving off just fractions of a second (and only three total frames), Kosmic can now officially claim the top speed in the world. You can check out his incredible run by clicking above!
