ChainChompBraden Almost Clears Trials of Death (again)

After 2931 hours of combined practice and upload time, ChainChompBraden just got nai 6 on Trials of Death. It seems like this final mid-air wasn’t so free after all.

If you’re familiar with the level, you’ll likely see yet more buffs to various parts. While Braden makes the level seem fairly straightforward, the amount of skill and determination it takes to reach the end is almost unimaginable.

Good luck, Braden! 2020 is your year!

PangaeaPanga and TonesBalones Clear Check a Crazy Co-op Level

PangaeaPanga and his new roommate, TonesBalones, have created and beaten a very hard co-op level in Mario Maker 2. While the co-op clear check was not strictly necessary to upload the level, the duo pulled it off regardless. With a clear time of over 6 hours, this will be quite a challenge for anyone wanting to beat it as well.

Judging from Panga’s youtube video, they had a lot of fun trying to beat their creation. The clear starts at 5:34.

Course ID: 1X4-P53-C3G

Note that the level starts with a contraption that detects if you’re playing by yourself or with other people, so if you go in alone you will end up in the single player portion of the level. The single player challenge resembles the co-op part, but is adjusted for being beatable by just one player. If you’re curious, you can watch Syun’s clear video.

Failstream Begins Upload Attempts On Fail’s Flotilla 4

Failstream, the creator of Fail’s Flotilla: Final Flight, has finished building the successor to his “Impossible Cape Level”. The Fail’s Flotilla levels have been steadily increasing in difficulty. Final Flight took Failstream 481 hours to upload. After that, he vowed never to make a sequel. Then came Mario Maker 2…

Did Failstream once again make an even more difficult level? Will this one drive him truly crazy? Only time will tell. Check out the trailer if you want a preview of what Fail’s life will look like for the foreseeable future.

Upload attempts on Fail’s Flotilla 4 will start on September 17, 2019. You can watch live on Failstream’s Twitch channel.

Featured Level: Castle of Aya : Revive by Aya

Aya, known for making very hard NSMBU speedrun levels in SMM1, is back for more in SMM2. In case you’re thinking about grabbing first clear, beware: This is not for beginners. It’s probably also not for intermediate or advanced players. Maybe you should just watch the video to see what you’re getting yourself into.

GG to Aya for uploading this. Let’s see who’s up for the challenge.

Level ID: 61K-WFJ-2PF

Edit: The level has been beaten in less than 2 days. Is it easier than it looks, or is the player that beat it just incredibly good at NSMBU as well? Either way, GG to おうちゃん, which translates to Ouchan (according to Google Translate). The level now stands at 1/5210.

ChainChompBraden Gets 5th Nai on Trials of Death

While most of us are building and playing Mario Maker 2 levels, ChainChompBraden hasn’t slowed down one bit trying to clear his Mario Maker 1 kaizo masterpiece, and just got his 5th nai on Trials of Death. After one-shotting his latest buff, the triple p-switch jump, he was stopped once again just inches from the axe that marks the end of the level.

For those that don’t know: Once Braden finally gets the clear and uploads Trials of Death, it will most likely be the hardest level in not only Mario Maker, but in any game ever (not including TAS of course). Braden has been trying to beat the level since late 2015, making it harder every time he came close to beating it. Since the buffs are getting fewer and further apart, we seem to be getting real close to the end of this journey.

4th Nai on Trials of Death

With the release of Mario Maker 2 steadily approaching, the number 1 question on everyone’s mind is, without a doubt: “Will Braden upload Trials of Death before the next game’s release?” And today, on day 1204 of upload attempts, with over 2500 hours invested, the answer was almost “yes”. Dying about an inch away from the goal, we just might see this monster uploaded in time.
