The organizers of Summer Games Done Quick have revealed which games we’ll be seeing at the speed running exhibition later this year.

A list of every game—as well as the speedrunners who will be showing off their skills and the category each game will fall under—has been posted on the Games Done Quick website. There are too many entries to list out, but a few entries stand out.

One notable entry is The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. For years, Wind Waker speedrunners were stymied by a seemingly unpassable barrier around Hyrule Castle. Then, in 2017, players found a way to pass the barrier using items from the HD version of the game, cutting the time previously needed to beat the game down by a whopping two hours. It seems that the famous barrier skip will be shown off by Linkus7.

Celeste and Cuphead are two notable new games that will be making their Games Done Quick debut, while many fan favorites like The Simpsons: Hit & Run and Super Mario Maker make their return.

Notably, Super Mario Odyssey is listed only as a bonus game, which some fans speculate means that it will appear on the final day as a major fundraiser driver. The game has been immensely popular in speedrunning communities since it released in October 2017.

Summer Games Done Quick 2018 will run from Sunday, June 24th, to Sunday, July 1st.
