Welcome to Speedrun Sunday: that sadistic time of the week when we dare to challenge both your D-pad’s durability and sanity’s stamina with the ultimate test in video game bragging rights.

Hot off the Double Dutched dance of our Super Mario Odyssey jump-rope challenge comes yet another ruthless run that will leave you shamelessly shocked in your shells. That’s right, fans of plumber powered parkour and minion run marathons: We’re lacing up our Mach 1 Sprint shoes in search of the quickest Koopa Kids Super Mario Odyssey has to offer.

THE CHALLENGE

Who can get the fastest time in the Luncheon Kingdom’s ‘Koopa Freerunning’ minigame?

Our claim to fame is 00:20:46, which has potential to break even the most talented of turtles among you. The cap-flinging fanatic with the fastest time by 12:00 a.m. ET will win a coveted $10 eShop card (North America), along with the illustrious title of Blazing Fast Brunch Bro.

THE RULES

Follow @NinWire and @cityw0k on Twitter and retweet this post to qualify for today’s cash prize. After that, simply snap a screenshot of your leaderboard score (as shown below) and share it alongside a 30 second video capture in the Twitter comments, and we’ll personally send both the prize and a social media shoutout to the winner on Monday afternoon. Also, make sure your in-game name matches your Twitter handle, or at the very least scribble your online alias using the Switch’s editing feature alongside your fanciful feat so we know it was you.

Remember, we’ll be keeping score right here in the article all day, too, so you can easily keep track where your top rivals rank.

So whaddya say? Ready to rise the Roving Racer ranks? To quote the radically reverse capped Koopaling himself, “Check out that speed, bro! Glad to race you anytime.“
