The lights are on
If you haven't unlocked it yet, you might have heard about Champion's Road in Super Mario 3D World. It's hard. Watch us (sort of) beat it.
Champion's Road is the last traditional level to beat on your journey to climb to the top of every flag pole and collect all of the game's green stars and stamps. Dan Ryckert and I finally managed to beat the level, and decided it was worth showing off. It's a difficult measure to quantify, but we agree it is very likely the hardest level to ever appear in a 3D Super Mario game.
Partially due to a lack of patience and partially due to an interest in withholding spoilers, we do not make it to the flag pole. But we do show off and complete the most difficult parts of the level. We also show an easy trick for getting a lot of lives very quickly.
For your protection, we have censored the profanity that Super Mario 3D World inspires.
