It’s The Big Win For Elden Ring Streamer MissMikkaa Who Defeated Two Malenias With a Dance Pad and a Controller

After 3 days and 199 tries MissMikkaa killed Elden Ring’s hardest boss Malenia twice simultaneously (with a dance pad & controller).

This astonishing accomplishment took place during an “Ultimate Challenge Run,” where she tasked herself with playing two Elden Rings games simultaneously with different controllers (Dance Pad & PS5 DualSense). She killed the bosses on the same try in both instances.

In the beginning she was not even sure if this run was possible. But now she plans on taking down Radagon/Elden Beast next.

Looks like nothing is impossible for her.
