I have been playing it a lot recently i bought a SNES for the that reason only a few weeks ago.. is there a world record (official or unofficial)
that has been set for the game I check Twin Galaxies and there wasn't one posted there.. ther are many videos on youtube but they are all using ROMS and slowly the FPS down.

World record as in how fast they completed the game?

I think there is fastest mininalist completion

Where you beat the first 7 stages and get the key in the first submerged level defeat the secret big "boo" boss and go to star world to get to bowser.

Full Completion hit all 96 (or 98) exits

I scanned my gameboy into my printer the time is the purple pinkish numbers at the top. My SNES time is 9 min 14 sec and my GBA time is 9 min 10 sec. I suggest saving the pic and zooming in to see the time better...

Wow lol

well that guy is fast,  probably faster than my time because the gameboy version doesnt count time when your on the world map so his time is probably the same as mine or a little less. I timed myself while playing the SNES version and stopped the timer anytime on the world map so i guess his is faster.

That's what I was thinking too.  Really though, if you're anywhere near that fast, you ought to try for the record.  While he had just about a perfect run, he did make a mistake juggling that key and the baby yoshi at the end of Star Road level 2.  If someone could nail that part and replicate everything else he did, they'd be the new record holder.

So, you want a record that's been achieved by a human, and not via TAS? Well, I guess some of the fastest times in the world can be found here. Their current records are:

  • Best time: Single-segment 0:10:59 by Adam 'Lucid Faia' Sweeney on 2007-12-15.

There you go. They even have videos. These are all verified to be done on the actual console, no cheats or anything. I'm not sure what more you want.

Edit: There may be faster times, but these guys are pretty strict on their rules and only upload times that have been submitted to them, so you won't find times you may find elsewhere.

Edit Edit: I see SpaceInsomniac already linked to speed demos archive. My bad.

If you're talking about the SDA video, it isn't fake. They are all verified to have no cheating before being accepted. Just because you can't do it doesn't mean it's impossible. You might want to watch the Ocarina of Time speedrun. That one is full of glitches that, if you didn't know how to do them, would seem to be total bullshit.

According the the book of Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition 2008 (which is about a year old, so it might have been broken since then) it is 10 minutes 54 seconds. This time was achieved on 9th July 2004.
