Although a relative newcomer to TASVideos's player list, Sniq is an experienced TASer in regards to Super Metroid, this time in a mission to perfect one of the most contested games in the site's history.

This run beats both the real time and game time of the previous any% records by Taco & Kriole (2009) and Saturn (2011). The real time improvement is 58.70 seconds whereas the game time improvement is 2 seconds, resulting in a real time of 37:39.1 and a game time of 22:36.

Sniq makes short work of Mother Brain and her space pirates, largely due to a major route change. Please read the author's submission notes for more information.
