Ladies and gentlemen!!
It is time to announce the Australian Kong Off 3!!!!
And there could not be a better time as the competitive Donkey Kong scene is well and truly alive right now.
Kong Off 7 was ran in Banning, California over March 15th to 17th with new winner Jeff Wolfe taking the crown.
On the very same weekend, John McCurdy set a new world record with a score of 1,249,500 jumping over Robbie Lakemans score by just 1,800 points.
And finally we have a new Australian record holder in Matthew Tecchio. After attending his first Kong Off at Netherworld last year and finishing 3rd, Matt achieved his first kill screen several months later then threw up 930,700 recently to take the Australian crown from previous Australian record holders Shane Sawle and Allen Staal. Matt is tracking for a million plus score any day and is going to make the Kong Off 3 competition tougher then ever.
Australian Kong Off 3 is one of the biggest arcade events in the country so expect to see fun times, high scores, kill screens and arcade royalty.
Tickets are $45 and include two Ekka gate passes, unlimited qualifying attempts (fair pay rule abides) and a limited edition pin by Luke Shield. Luke has done an amazing job on the poster artwork so expect to see more from him including marquees, t-shirts and custom side art.
The Australian Kong Off 3 will also be hosted by none other then Kong Off founder and arcade legend, Richie Knucklez. Richie will be bringing along his daughter Faith also who is one of the best female DK players on the planet.
Presented by Hutchinson Builders, Richie Knucklez and Netherworld
