Many of you probably have seen the 2007 documentary The King of Kong (and if you haven’t, Netflix it now!). The movie follows the battle between Steve Wiebe and noted Donkey Kong/vintage video game champion Billy Mitchell, over the world record for Donkey Kong. Since the release of the film, it has been fun tracking the back and fourth battle between Wiebe and Mitchell for the world record (we’ve even covered it on the site in the past).
We have a bit of good news to report, Steve Wiebe has officially reclaimed the Donkey Kong World Record from Billy Mitchell! Details after the jump.
