The Super Mario Bros. “Any Percentage” tug-of-war continues with new record of 4:56.878

Like Michael Jordan returning to the basketball court after trying his hand at baseball, “Darbian” has returned to the realm of competitive Super Mario Bros. speedrunning. On Wednesday, “Darbian” completed the game in a time of just four minutes and 56.878 seconds to set a new “Any Percentage” world record for the beloved side-scroller.

No one really knows just how low the Super Mario Bros. speedrun record can go, so it’s possible that “Darbian” won’t remain the champion for long. Especially since the previous world record, a 4:57.194 run by “Kosmic,” stood for just two days.
