Hold onto your controllers, gamers! Speedrunning legend Niftski has done it again, shattering his previous "Super Mario Bros." world record with a mind-boggling run of just 4 minutes, 54 seconds, and 631 milliseconds.

That's a 167-millisecond improvement from his last best, pulling us all a tad closer to the theoretical Tool-Assisted Speedrun (TAS) limit of 4 minutes, 54 seconds, and 265 milliseconds.

With a mere 22-frame gap separating him from this pinnacle of gaming performance, the fabled "Wall of Sighs" seems almost within reach.
