The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has been completed in a record speed run of under just 25 minutes.

YouTube user ZeldaFreakGlitcha, as their name suggests, has discovered a new glitch which creates a warp between the Great Deku Tree all the way to the escape from Ganon’s Castle.

To do so, they use a glitch that sees you able to retrieve a Bottle from Kakariko Village before reaching the Great Deku Tree. This can then be turned into an Ocarina using a further glitch, which, if used near the warp following defeating Gohma, is able to confuse the game’s scripting and leaves you trapped in the Great Deku Tree.

Attempt to make an exit from the Boss room and the game fails to work out precisely where your progress lies, taking you to the finale where Link and Zelda must flee Ganon’s Castle.

Prior to this the fastest speed run, without glitches, stands at 4 hours and 26 minutes.
