Shovel Knight from Yacht Club Games only came out in June, but several individuals have already moved past being satisfied with the game's core experience and have started challenging themselves to beat it as fast as they can; individuals like BustahWuff, who earlier this week set a Shovel Knight speedrun record at 48 minutes and 35 seconds.

The record-setting attempt was an "any %" run, and thus did not require BustahWuff to collect every item hidden in the 2D platformer. BustahWuff was also not aiming for a low percentage of completion, nor was he using cheats or glitches in a major way (unlike, for example, how a backwards long jump can shave minutes off a Super Mario 64 speedrun).

You can check out the run for yourself after the break. Congrats, BustahWuff!
