Default Hyper Iria world record

So a bit over 2 weeks ago, I was trying out Japanese retro games that never came out in the West but eventually got a fan translation. I discovered a bunch of cool gems, but most importantly, I found out about Hyper Iria and I kind of fell in love with it. I played through it the next day and decided I wanted to master this game.

I looked it up on speedrun.com and found out the world record was 8 years old and quite a bit better than the other scores on the leaderboard. I decided to get to work and try to get the world record for myself. I recently quit my job and am visiting my parents in my native village, so I definitely had time to practice, which I did for almost 10 hours a day, every day.

Once I felt ready, with hundreds of attempts on every stage but the last one, I started doing speedruns live on Twitch. 134 attempts later, here I am.



This was a silly sidequest in my life and of course not the greatest accomplishment in gaming history or anything, but it was really great. I'm 33 years old and I love video games, and sometimes I wonder if my peak gaming days are behind me. I'm glad I could see this through to the end like this, it feels fantastic.

Also, this is a pretty great B tier game, very fun to get into especially if you like memorizing routes. I'd be happy to give advice to anyone wanting to give this game a shot!

Anyway, I just wanted to share =) I hope you all have a great day

I'm surprised there's not some sort of FFR speedrunning group.

Hyper Iria is a great game to learn speedruns.

H&H made me try it out and I'm getting close to under 17 min now.

I was just thinking that if I can do it, others probably can too.

I messaged the mod on discord and he responded within 30 seconds, that was nuts. Then we talked for a bit and he modded me so I could take over mod stuff

The new world record's animation cancelling is so fucking good



See @ 2:17

I experimented with this a little bit yesterday, but it's incredibly difficult to pull off on controller. Haku is also pretty good at cancelling, but this is next level

Just got the any% WR with 15m 40s 580ms.

https://www.speedrun.com/hyper_iria/runs/mkpd5q1y

Not my proudest run, but it did the job. I did the classic "do what the others are doing, but try to do it a bit better". I do have ideas, but I probably shouldn't try them in full runs until I properly test them to be consistent. Stage 1 & 3 were a bit yikes tbh. Mostly got carried by Stage 2,4,5.

I also have the normal% WR, but I think people are sleeping on it. I swear it's not a bad time.
