Ninja Gaiden 2 Speedrun Vids

Post by Button Masher » Mon Nov 17, 2014 11:26 pm

Hi I've been looking into finding shortcuts and tricks for speedrunning this game. I remember about 3-4 years ago on the old site there was a guy who had a full speedrun of the game captured. I cant remember his name though. Does any one else remember his name and have the links for the run? I would like to compare some of my strats.

Thanks :bolt:

This guy named Lance3375 on SDA claimed that he did a run on MN but lost his save file and never finished it.
Here's link to his old posts:

Here's link to JTB's speedruns on Acolyte.

Thanks for the videos :)

I have found some nice out of bound skips on chapters 3 and 9 that saves quite a bit of time. I will make some videos and post them

This is the out of bounds in chapter 3 I found and have been messing around with:

it would be cool if anyone could try and progress a little further :pray:

The skip on chapter 9 saves a lot more time than this one. I will post it tomorrow when I have a save closer to it. :kungfu:

Fascinating. Will be quite interested to see the Ch.09 one.
IIRC in Ch.05 you can backtrack from after you get the LotG from the chest across the rope. Go back through the tunnel and you get the place filled with water but I don't know if you can do anything with it.

This the out of bounds in chapter 9, it lets you skip the hoverbot fight. Found it quite a while ago but didnt have the ability to record it.

Just FYI, to embed you'll need the standard youtube link (which was fine in the post above) and no spaces between the opening and closing code tags. [youtube]link[/youtube]
Will check this out later when I get a chance.
