Hagane: The Final Conflict is a 1994 action-platform video game developed by CAProduction and published by Red Entertainment and Hudson for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The player takes on the role of a ninja cyborg named Hagane on his path to take revenge on an opposing ninja faction. The game combines traditional Japanese ninja and samurai aesthetics with a futuristic setting. The player has a wide variety of weapons, moves, and attacks at their disposal to defeat enemies and progress through the game.

In this run, Sniq beats the previous movie from Tiger- and Heisanevilgenius by 57.02 seconds. Record time was achieved through better general optimization, new boss fighting techniques, and some minor tricks.

Super Metroid is a platform game and a follow-up to Metroid II. Like the previous games in the series, it is not divided into separate levels; the planet Zebes is an open world which Samus traverses back and forth. This world is divided into rooms separated with doors which must be shot to be opened. Shooting is also used to open up secret passages, some of which contain nifty bonuses, but finding most of them is required to proceed in the game.

This run was console verified in spirit using total's PSoC5-based replay device during SGDQ 2018 but is not marked as console verified because the run shown at the event differs from this submitted movie due to console reliability factors and a different ending payload.

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.


Spoiler: Hover over the screenshot.

This run not only beats the previous any% but also obsoletes the previous reverse boss order TAS due to similar routes. This is an improvement of 1:40.95 over the predecessor movie. As well as an improvement over the reverse boss order TAS by 10:40.51.

Award - SNES TAS of 2016
At the end of Metroid II: Return of Samus, there is but one Metroid left in the universe. Bad things happen, and Samus Aran must once again head for Planet Zebes to battle Mother Brain, Ridley, and the Space Pirates. (And a few other bosses too.)

This movie improves on both prior low% runs (one that collects the Ice Beam and one that collects the Speed Booster) by collecting the Speed Booster and using various Shinespark-related glitches to render the Gravity Suit unnecessary, pushing the total required number of items from 14 down to 13. The author's comments are very detailed, and well worth a read if you're curious about just how everything was done.

There are a number of other routes that can be taken while still getting 13 items, but all of those routes require a specific glitch when fighting Draygon which gives you a non-infinite but arbitrarily large amount of ammunition; the item route in this movie does not permit the use of this glitch. If you would like to see this glitch, it is featured in the following (now-obsoleted) iteration of the any% run.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
