Hi, here is an improvement of 234 frames (392 when counting the title screen) over my last submisson.


Game objectives

  • Emulator used: BizHawk 1.11.5
  • Aims for fastest time
  • Takes damage to save time
  • Uses a game restart sequence


The first thing you may have noticed is that I switched to the japanese version of the game. I did so to get a better comparison with RTA runs. I didn't count the time saved by the title screen.

Other comments

Thanks to everyone who gave me good feedback on my last submisson. This is what motivated me to restart this from scratch and I am happy to save around 4 seconds.
