The Minish Cap is an addition to The Legend of Zelda series that sees our hero fight Ganondorf Vaati, retrieve and power up the Master Sword Picori Sword to once again save the land of Hyrule and rescue Princess Zelda.

This run by Tompa and quo improves upon the previous run by over 8 minutes thanks to much better optimization, new glitches, and a switch to the Japanese version of the game.


There is also an alternate YouTube stream featuring audio commentary by the authors.

The Minish Cap is an addition to The Legend of Zelda series that sees our hero fight Ganondorf Vaati, retrieve and power up the Master Sword Picori Sword to once again save the land of Hyrule and rescue Princess Zelda.

Following the constant advice of a talking hat and utilizing unique items as well as getting more use out of an ocarina than simply getting around, Tompa completes this task in record time, putting Vaati back in his place in a mere hour and 48 minutes!

Now using Bizhawk instead! Unknown how far I'm ahead of the previous run, due to emulator differences.
