EarthBound Forum  /  Going to start looking into this

I am going to try to start speedrun this game I was wondering what's the most optimal way to play to get fast times?

Curious as to the nature of the question.

If we're talking what's the fastest version or method of playing, it'd be on SNES console. There's only one version of EarthBound (that we are aware of) so it doesn't matter what cart it is. Consoles run at something around 60.1 FPS versus emulator and WiiUVC running at 59.97 FPS (which ends up losing 30+ seconds throughout the course of a run).

Other than that, we have guides in the Guides section and also our discord is located here:

Feel free to ask any questions regarding the route/run. Excited to see a new runner!
