The game is part of the first wave of launch titles for the Nintendo Switch.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been praised by critics and gamers alike thanks to its massive open world gameplay. It was a sure hit and may be one of the reasons why the Nintendo Switch ran out of stock when it was released a week ago.
The open world setting for the new game means you have hours upon hours to explore this virtual world. Early reviews said that at least 100 hours is required to fully complete the game but streamer Venick was able to complete the entire game in just 54:05 – yes, that 54 minutes and 5 seconds. I’m already 80 hours in Breath of the Wild and I feel like I’m just running around one area.
Speedruns like this are fairly common. A similar feat was achieved a couple of months back with the classic Super Mario Bros. game, where a gamer managed to complete it in less than 5 minutes.
Still skeptical? Watch Venick do the impossible in the video below – spoilers ahead (obviously).
