Doctor Kong Trailer Reveals Hank Chien's True Motivation

Hint: it's not a hatred of gorillas

Plenty has been written about the ongoing action at the top of the global Donkey Kong leaderboards, but what inspired plastic surgeon Dr Hank Chien to take up the challenge?

Chien, whose score of 1,068,000 is just 3,500 points above nearest rival Steve Wiebe, is the subject of a new independent documentary called Doctor Kong, which reveals the Doctor's motivation for starting on the long road to high score heroics.

The full documentary will be premièred next Tuesday, and Nintendo Life will be there to interview director Alexis Neophytides with pressing questions about her button-pressing documentary. For now, check the trailer out below and come back for our coverage of The Kong Off at Richie Knucklez Arcade in Flemington, NJ on March 19th and 20th, where Dr Chien, Billy Mitchell, Steve Wiebe and more will compete for ultimate Donkey Kong dominance.

He just wanted to save the girl, that's all. Better yet, he wanted to save her a few hundred times in one gaming session.

After watching King of Kong, I really am a huge fan of Wiebe and the nice guy he is. However, I am really excited to watch Doctor Kong, because just from those clips, Dr. Chien seems like a really likable guy, as well.

Thing is, he's a surgeon, and surgeons have some of the most precise hand-eye coordination of anyone, so it's no surprise he's good at video games, it's just most people who answer to the higher calling of becoming a doctor don't bother or have the time for games.
