Those who love Super Mario Maker know that there is a practically impossible level in the game, not open to players yet. But on September 30 of this year came the news of Trials of Death finally dealt with. After 4,368 hours! The one who broke the level was none other than the creator himself. Branden Moor, who goes by the username ChinChompBranden initially built the level in 2015, but he wasn’t exactly satisfied with the level of difficulty, and that’s part of the reason this level took so long to break.
Moor loves challenges, and with every time he made the level more difficult came the dissatisfaction of it not being hard enough. In the beginning, Moor had predicted Trials of Death would take 500 hours to cross, but he ended up making it so difficult that it took nearly 7 years! When he crossed 2,978 hours, he was honored by the Guinness World Records as being the player who had spent the longest hours trying to beat a Super Mario Maker game.
Gamers across the world are getting ready to try out Trials of Death for themselves, but there has been no news of the game coming out for Nintendo Switch anytime soon. For so many years the game wasn’t uploaded due to one specific rule – Super Mario Maker creators could only upload their levels once they were able to cross it themselves. However, in March last year, Nintendo decided to turn off the upload function for Super Mario Maker. Does this mean we won’t get to play this gaming nightmare? The creator has assured that the level will come to Switch. However, we would wait for Nintendo’s statement before getting too excited.
