Speedrunners continue to set records in Mario Kart Wii's Time Trial mode, and just recently, a user was able to successfully pull off a shortcut that was deemed near impossible to accomplish. It is possible to skip a majority of Rainbow Road by using two mushrooms near the start of the track, but the actual jump required to do so requires pixel-perfect precision. But that didn't stop Twitter user @ArthuurrrP from trying the trick over and over until he did it correctly. Congratulations, ArthuurrrP!
as seen on reddit, after 5 years and tens of thousands of attempts, @ArthuurrrP is the first human to achieve the Mario Kart Wii Rainbow Road ultra shortcut and lap successfully. Arthur the god pic.twitter.com/J52B8NEqHw— Rod Breslau (@Slasher) January 14, 2021
