Speedrunners Harness Odd Glitch to Drastically Shorten Super Mario Bros. Wonder Playthroughs
A Newly Discovered Glitch Allows Skips and Faster Progression
The world of speedrunning has been ignited by a peculiar glitch in “Super Mario Bros. Wonder,” allowing players to breeze through the game in record time. This unexpected discovery has caught the attention of Twitch streamer and speedrunner Jhay, who shared the glitch with the gaming community.
As reported by GamesRadar+, this glitch enables players to entirely skip a mandatory level at the end of the first world, known as Pipe-Rock Plateau Palace. By doing so, they can swiftly progress to the second world, significantly shortening their playthrough. The glitch involves some intricate maneuvers in two-player mode. Players need to employ a second controller, move their first character off the screen, switch characters in the options menu, and then control the player-two character to walk off the side of the map, which is not intended in the game’s design.
