Although The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s Master Trials DLC was only made available less than a couple of weeks ago, speedrunners have already begun to blaze through the content in order to be deemed the fastest in the world. Now, it looks like the YouTuber and speedrunner known as Loloup currently holds the quickest time for the expansion materials’ completion, with the gamer having beaten the DLC’s Trial of the Sword in 43 minutes and 45 seconds.
As seen in the pair of videos below, not only did Loloup conquer The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s Trial of the Sword in less than an hour, but also he managed to set the world record for beating the game’s DLC on the new extra hard difficulty setting called Master Mode. Understandably, it took the YouTuber a little bit longer to get the best time for Trial of the Sword on Master Mode at 54 minutes and 36 seconds, as enemies deal more damage, have more health, and regain their HP if they’re left alone for too long.
While Loloup’s world record time for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s Trial of the Sword DLC is impressive to say the least, the YouTuber has gone on record to say that he knows he can do better. Regarding the speedrun through Trial of the Sword on its normal difficulty setting, Loloup said, “I know I can still save a few more minutes on my run. Sub 40 should be possible in a few days.” Then, in reference to besting his time in Master Mode, he said, “I feel like the time can be very similar to normal mode with a little bit more optimization, sub 50 should be pretty easy.”
Considering the amount of time it took for Trial of the Sword to be initially beaten – it took the YouTuber AbdallahSmash026 roughly four and a half hours to complete the content, for instance – Loloup’s speedruns and his plans to best them are downright outstanding. With each challenge in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s Master Trials DLC consistently proving to be more difficult than the last, it’s safe to say that the YouTuber has already mastered the expansion when compared to an average player’s abilities.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available now for Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
