Wow, it took almost three months for this game to get a new run since we started our speedrunning section! :lol:

Yeah, the last submission was in November of last year, for the Any% category. While I like the visuals of the game as well as everything it brought over from the cancelled Rayman 4, the gameplay always felt a bit subpar to me so it must be rather tedious to speedrun. Anyway, it's not the only one not to get much love: neither Rayman 3 GBA, Rayman 3 mobile, Rayman 1 GBC, Rayman 2 Forever, Rayman Kart or Rayman Fiesta Run have seen a single submission since February.

Speaking of RRR GBA, I had no idea that you could skip gates and some other obstacles through some menuing glitch. And yet, I was expecting more glitches than are actually used in the run!
