The Trial of the Sword is one of the many new features to come to Breath of the Wild in its first DLC pack. Unable to bring any weapons or armor, the Trial of the Sword is considered one hellish challenge for Link, though its reward is well worth the effort. 

What he considers “a pretty decent run,” YouTuber and member of the Nintendo Creators Program Loloup managed to conquer the challenge in 43 minutes and 45 seconds. Throughout the video, Loloup efficiently speeds through the trials. Watching him hit virtually every enemy in the head with an arrow, and knocking tough enemies off into the water, is certainly satisfying to watch. You can check out the full video below.

His other impressive videos include an “All Shrines” speedrun (without help from amiibo rewards) and the defeat of Master Mode Calamity Ganon while blindfolded. Feel free to check out more of his content through his YouTube Channel and Twitch. 

What are your thoughts on Loloup’s speedrun? Will you be attempting to speed through the Trial of the Sword? Let us know in the comments below. We’d love to hear.
