Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 Under the Knife 2 is the fourth game in the Trauma Series overall but the second game chronologically. While the gameplay is similar to Wii games, Under the Knife 2 features different tricks and game mechanics made possible by using two stylus.

I am willing to wear scrubs/surgeon cosplay for the run.

The Messenger The new hit indie title. Slash your way through multiple foes while dealing with a series of serious platforming sections. It switches between old school 8-bit and 16-bit.
About the speedrun since the game is fairly new a lot of strats are being found, but somehow it is pretty clear that unless a big glitch will be found the time cannot get below two hours.
I think this game should totally be at AGDQ because it's a really nice looking game, good music and also pretty nice graphics.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Low% OHKO is a run that shows off strategies no other run uses. Viewers will be on the edge of their seats watching Xelna and I avoid death constantly. There are safe strategies for some of the problem rooms. Also submitting 100% All Hearts, which is an all glitches allowed 100% category. Shows off really cool things not seen in many other runs!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Breath of the Wild is a whole new direction for the Zelda series, featuring an open aired world, and an amazing physics engine that leads to tons of multiplicative gameplay experiences. After having runs at previous GDQs, 2018 has been a massive year for this game, with the discovery of tricks such as Stasis Resets, Super Launches, and now Shield Skew Clipping. These tricks highlight just how amazing the physics in this game are, and show mind blowing examples that it allows in speedruns. Status: Backup

Super Metroid 100% Item Collection is true showcase of skill that also shows viewers where those pesky items are if they missed them on a play through of their own. I am also submitting Any% old route which is a safer and still very exciting way to show of the any% run. I would also be up for a race of this is others submit.

Super Mario World In the last 3 years since SMW 96 Exit has been at a GDQ, several large time saves and many optimizations have been discovered. The world record is more than a minute faster than before, and the average run is probably almost 2 minutes faster thanks to more consistent strats. A race would be great to ensure that all the tricks are shown off. Status: Backup

Super Mario Sunshine Lockout bingo is a variant of regular bingo, where instead of completing a row, the objective is to score 13 goals before your opponents. Every single goal on the board is fair game, and once the goal is selected, the other team can no longer get that point. This makes lockout bingo a chess-like strategy match that has teams and audiences on their toes until the very end. This match will include Bounceyboy, PangaeaPanga, SniperKing, and TonesBalones, separated into equal teams. Status: Backup

Super Gracie World This Super Mario World ROM hack by white_moth serves as a great introductory kaizo hack, progressing in difficulty as it goes and incorporating newer tools such as the retry system and 1F0 rails. Some difficult, optional skips exist. The 100% category is a bonus extension of any% and involves a lot more visually impressive tech-heavy levels to end the run. Submitting as a race with Wahnthac, this game promises to be consistent enough to be a close race while hard enough to shock the audience. Status: Backup

sonic forces again, sorry for just submitting the pb video...well I already know there is 2 other runner is going to do race but I am going to submit sonic forces again. This game it the 2nd newest sonic game which didn't come out at 2018 sgdq. well the story is pretty bad but game itself is very fast and there is useful glitches that can be easily used. There are four kind of stage styles. mordern, classic, avatar, and tag stages. my avatar stages or tag stages record is better than thebluemania or sayuri. Status: Backup

Sonic Forces I am submitting this as a race with thebluemania. Sonic Forces is a 3D/2.5D platformer. It's a game similar to Sonic Generations, but with its own spin on things. The custom character Avatar's wispon powerups are in full effect here, specifically the Drill weapon, which absolutely makes the speedrun. Classic Sonic is back with a vengeance, Modern Sonic's boost is stupidly broken, and more. Screwy physics, cool skips and rad movement strats make this run a joy to watch! Status: Backup

Shrek Extra Large Who's the fastest guy around starting with the letter "S"? That's right, it's Shrek. While this run might seem silly at first (and a good candidate for Awful Games Done Quick block), this speedrun is highly movement based with extremely low variability as far as RNG goes (but some funny outcomes with bad RNG.) This is really fast-paced, making the entire run require much focus and skill to consistently do in under 30 minutes. Did I mention there's a dedicated fart button and fart speed tech? Status: Backup

Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal The game that started the modern era of Ratchet and Clank at GDQ events. Fast paced movement, wild out of bounds and sequence breaks, and extremely technical precision make this one of the hardest platformers across any console. NG+ looks like a completely new category in comparison to its AGDQ 2016 iteration, any% is a brutal and unforgiving exercise in platformer min-maxing, and 2 players 1 controller with ThaRixer would make for an exhilarating and unforgettable run from two top level runners Status: Backup

NieR: Automata NieR: Automata features a great mix of combat, movement, and glitches. Ending [E] completes all main endings and features clever routing and skips, and extremely frightening combat. It also features the use of two extra characters compared to [A] Ending runs.

Submitted as race with up to 3 players. Races are tight and there are risky strategy differences that entirely change the run's feel. This run also features best boy Emil. Can provide a third PC. I'm racer #2.

Monster World IV Monster World IV is the 6th game in the Wonder Boy franchise. This game features Asha and her adorable sidekick - who also acts as a double-jump mechanic. Thanks to this, from very early in the game the run features skips, from skipping parts of a room up to skipping an entire dungeon.
This category also features the "Magic Merchant" making powerful equipment available very early, allowing aggressive strats and even more skips. Offering as a race with cyclone and berlindude1.
