Any% (No Pause Storage)

Play on Italian if you have a PAL Wii U or Spanish if you have an NTSC Wii U. If you have Japanese Wii U...I'm sorry but you'll have to use Japanese.

This Route loses about 6 minutes to the Late Bombs Pause storage route. This is the recommended route to learn if you do not own a Wii U Pro Controller.

It is recommended to read this page of common yet subtle techniques as well as this page on common terms and abbreviations before getting started.

It is best to learn from both this written route and by watching a high level run of the game as not every single small detail is explained in this route (otherwise this document would be like 20 pages long).
