Just recently, Steve Wiebe, star of The King of Kong documentary, announced that he was returning to the competitive Donkey Kong scene. Just weeks into his return, Wiebe has already set a personal best.
Steve Wiebe's new best score is a 1,106,200, easily topping his previous best of 1,064,500 set in 2010. Robbie Lakeman holds the world record at 1,260,700, so Wiebe has some work to do. Wiebe shared some words on his new score milestone, which you can read below.
I'm a ways away from any world record on Donkey Kong, but it sure felt good to cross the 1.1M mark. I was just doing a practice game before I was going to stream, and I had a good run for 1,106,200. I should be streaming everyday for the summer and hopefully, I can hit my next milestone of 1.15M soon.
