The huge success of the Nintendo Switch can be attributed partly to its launch title "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild." Fans are very delighted to see their beloved series rendered in an interactive and entertaining open-world game with physics-driven gameplay. A month after its release date, the goal of hardcore players shifted from just finishing the game to finishing it in the shortest time possible called speed-running.

Speed-running is the latest trend in the gaming world where players races to finish the game based on some condition set. It may be finishing the game's storyline the fastest way possible or it may be finishing the game 100% where all the collectibles and everything in the game is accomplished. Speed-running have gained much popularity over the years and recently someone finished the latest "Legend of Zelda" game 100% in 49 hours.

According to Gamespot, the player under the name Xalikah has completed a 100% speed-run for "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" on exactly 49 hours, nine minutes, and 41 seconds. Xalikah mentioned that the hard part in completing the game is thinking about all the stuff needed, especially when the lack of sleeps kicks in. The game boasts its massive open-world which is twelve times larger than the world of "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess" so exploring it is very challenging.

The conditions to attain the 100% was completing all heart and stamina upgrades which mean exploring all 120 shrines sprinkled over the gaming world. All quests must be completed and the map must be explored 100% which includes collecting all 900 Korok seeds, climbing every tower and discovering every nooks and corner of Hyrule. All Key Items must also be collected, as well as the famed Master Sword. To finish the list, players must fully upgrade all the equipment in the game, the rules, and a complete compendium.

Meanwhile, ChaoticAce of New York who's the record holder for speed-running the GameCube version of "The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker" mentioned that a lot of speed-runners are not concerned in their position in the leaderboard. According to ChaoticAce, it's not about the time and position that speed-runners are after but the results that they can be proud of as reported by Metro. For some, their standing in the leaderboards are everything that matter but speed-running is about friendly competition.
