Steve Wiebe has set a new Donkey Kong Jr. record, according to Twin Galaxies.

The King of Kong star surpassed Ike Hall’s previous score of 1,033,000 with a massive 1,139,800.

Loads of patience there we reckon.

Attendees at E3 this year can watch Wiebe try for the fourth time to break Billy Mitchell’s Donkey Kong record on June 2.

    Good pre-hype for E3. And not some empty statement either. Impressive!

    King of Kong was a great documentary and a good study of two very different people. Friends of mine who aren’t that fussed about videogames have really enjoyed it. Well worth a watch.

    It was a fun film, but apparently a lot of the supposed animosity between Wiebe and Billy Mitchell(lol) was manufactured in the edit room. Still a great watch though.
