The final 12 hours of Awesome Games Done Quick 2019 features six events, but speedrun favorites The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Super Mario Odyssey are among them. The AGDQ schedulers have planned a crowd-pleasing finale that wraps up at midnight. You can watch all of it live, right here.

Below are all the remaining events (all times ET) with record holders noted (according to speedrun.com). The full schedule is here.

Xelna is first in four main categories of A Link to the Past, which has the fourth-most players among games on Speedrun.com. They’re also No. 1 in three category extensions, including this one. The world record time is 1:33:57.
