The World Record History of Super Mario Sunshine any%

loading player ...
In this video, I explain the entire history of world record speedruns for the any% category of Super Mario Sunshine - from its release in 2002 to the current day (September 2017). This game has a rich history of trick discoveries, rivalries, movement optimizations, and dominant players that seemed unbeatable in their time.

Regardless of one's familiarity with the game, I feel that everyone can get something out of this. The current leaderboard for SMS can be seen here:

This guide from 1UpsForLife helped tremendously, and I can't thank him enough for archiving most of SMS speedrun history, which made my job a lot easier:

I was mainly inspired by SummoningSalt's "World Record Progression" series, and to some extent, RWhiteGoose's "Speedlore" series. I would highly recommend checking out both of their channels if you haven't already:

EDIT: The first record since this video was made has been set on June 21st, 2019. Congrats to Weegee on 1:14:37!
