No MSS (FCP)

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 is the fastest route that doesn't perform any manual superswim, with the exception of the No MSS bombs skip route.

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 50 pages long).
