Within just two weeks from the release, the  speedrunner community has declared their clear times for the latest game "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild." One of the speedrunners won the within an hour. Although"Breath of The Wild" is a little different than the previous Zelda games, the speedrunner reached out to create a world record by winning the game in just 50 minutes.

Since the launch of "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild," speedrunner began poking holes in the game. The speedrunner community even shared some cool techniques to move faster. The first major speedrun was done by Orcstraw with 3:39:39, since then the numbers dropped quickly and recently the speedrunner community even hold the world record their hard work.

Speedrunner Gymnast86 is the first to finish "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild," under an hour with a time of 58:01. Speedrunner Gymnast86 also speedrun previous Zelda games including Skyward Sword, Twilight Princess, Majora's Mask and Wind Waker. Although, the speedrunner has the experience to win over previous Zelda games, the record of 58:01 didn't last long.

The current world record for "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild" was held by Orcastraw. The speedrunner Orcastraw holds the top spot on leaders' boards with a time of 51:18. Yesterday, a speedrunner Venick challenged the record and wanted to complete it in just 50 minutes.

However, speedrunner Venick wanted to beat the current record of 51 minutes and 18 records, he unluckily could not.  Yesterday, speedrunner Venick was on track to beat that record and possible even drop the time under the 50-minute mark but lost the run when the game froze during the final boss section. In "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild," players can head straight to Hyrule Castle and can fight Canon after opening Grand Plateau region. We hope Speedrunner Venick might beat the track next time.
