This is the world record speedrun of Chip 'N Dale: Rescue Rangers Any% Co-op in 9:21.667 featuring Sinister1 as Dale and GeneralAndrews as Chip. We have worked very hard on this run for just over a year and this is the final result.
We first got the world record on 9/1/2019 with a 9:25 that was an absolute monster run. But less than 12 hours later I made a discovery that would alter the speedrun route of this game forever, a zip in stage 0 that saves two seconds. We knew that we would have to press onward and lower the world record even further. After collaborating with Junkyard_Dave to find even more improvements in the final stage we knew that a 9:22 was theoretically possible.
As we played on and lowered our record, our sum of best (SOB) continued to get lower and lower until it hit 9:19.6. We knew that historically we have been able to get a run within two seconds of SOB. That means coming within 15 frames of your absolute best stage time for eight consecutive stages. 15 frames is a quarter of a second. It seemed very unlikely to get a 9:21 given how difficult the run had become with all the advanced strategies, but somehow we managed to pull it off!
We are going to move on from this category and play the All Zones category starting in January, 2020 with a preliminary goal of 12:15 or lower. You can follow both of our channels and watch runs live on Twitch!
