Breath of the wild speed runs. Bets.



  • I think 3 is a good estimate.. we don't know if you might need to collect other items to defeat the final boss or fully access it.

    I'm going to make my guess 4.5 hours



  • Maybe it won't be at SGDQ this year, but next year, it will for sure be at AGDQ 2018.

    Anyways, I'm betting it will still take at least an hour.
    Like maybe you can get to the final boss and grind out the win to beat it, but it is actually faster to get these three items first.



  • The ocarina of time any% is around 18 minutes, The rest are a few hours. I'll say 1:25:34 as the exact hours, minutes and seconds if you're gonna go one week after release. A month down the track I wouldn't be surprised if that were cut in half, but the guys at the top of the Zelda league usually actually like the games and would probably play through it casually once before they give breaking the mechanics a shot.



  • Following up -

    From what I can tell, the first week held a record of 3:39:39.

    Sources and junk.

    It looks like (for now) the record is at 52:25.

    I wasn't too far off at first, but looks like they shaved off time quicker than I thought.
