Wario Land 2 Any% by Soulrivers

  • Recorded on VisualBoyAdvance 1.7.2 re-recording 19.3
  • Aims for fastest time

This run “completes” the game in a mere 8:35 minutes (30912 frames) by playing through one of the secret chapters, spanning only 6 stages. It actually produces an ending, though not the same as if you had completed the game the “normal” way. To reach the secret chapter, you have to not touch any button after starting a new game, letting Wario stay in bed. This submission is roughly 55 seconds faster than the rejected submission by LSK.

The fastest way of movement is obviously the dash. There is a slight delay when starting the dash, which can be avoided by doing a jump. At some times, the delay is carried out as a jump wouldn't be benficial.


NesVideoAgent: Hi! I am a robot. I took a few screenshots of this movie and placed them here. Here goes! Feel free to clean up the list.

Truncated: I rejected the last movie of this game due to bad game choice, but it seems people like this a lot more. If nothing else, it is at least played a lot better. I will accept it.
