Emulators have been around since the mid to late ’90s. Popular games of consoles during the ’90s are still prominent to this very day because of emulators. In the case of Nintendo, their most prominent console was the Super Nintendo Entertainment System or the SNES. It’s a 16-bit video game console that they released in 1990 in Japan. The Super Nintendo became the best-selling 16-bit game console that rivaled against its competitor, the Sega Genesis. It featured all Nintendo’s signature franchises such as Super Mario World, Donkey Kong, and The Legend of Zelda. It’s because these games were so iconic back then that they’re still being played to this very day. This is possible because of the SNES emulators that we have today.
The most downloaded game of PC Super Nintendo Emulators is Super Mario World with a total of 6,914,967 downloads. The game is hands down the most downloaded title among the SNES platform with the second one only having a number around 2,496,864 downloads. There’s no doubt why Super Mario is the most successful title that Nintendo has ever produced. Because of its world-renowned popularity, the game has become a subject of speedruns. The game’s record is all about who can finish the game in the fastest time, with a lot of people having impressive entries. But, the most impressive would have to be when a speedrunner beat the game in less than fourteen minutes while blindfolded. Katun24 is well known for his speedruns in Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest. The blindfolded run is his most successful feat yet. He had some lapses in some stages, but luckily he came through in the end. He's deserving of the record that he holds.
