Back in April of this year, Nintendo announced the 20th and final Ninji Speedrun, a monthly series of Nintendo-made levels designed to be run through as fast as possible. Well, now Nintendo has made a liars of itself, as it’s brought back the very fun Ninji Speedrun concept for a special event to celebrate the launch of Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda.



Until November 21st at 6 p.m. PT, Super Mario Maker 2 players can play Link’s Lightweight Longshots, a special course that utilizes the Master Sword item, which transforms Super Mario Bros. 1 Mario into Link. Certainly a bit of a random choice to celebrate the new device, but if you have Super Mario Maker 2, be sure to check it out while you can, because this might actually be the last Ninji Speedrun!
