FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (click for photo)(Press Release) – Mar 05, 2010 – A new official World Record score has landed in the hands of a gamer in Walhalla, SC.

32-year-old Brandon LeCroy has just racked up the new official World Record score on hit game New Super Mario Bros. Wii, according to famed video game scorekeepers Twin Galaxies. LeCroy racked up an impressive 3,647,680 points on Twin Galaxies Extreme Rules on the popular Nintendo title.

Under Twin Galaxies rules for the title, LeCroy had to rack up his score from the start of the game on just one life while maintaining foward progress along the way. The record score for this game has changed hands a dozen times already between gamers in the US, Canada, and The Netherlands.

“I’ve had the privilege to watch a few high level games so far on this title, and this guy has the point pressing down to a science,” said Eric Akeson, the Twin Galaxies official who verified the new record score. “Two and a half hours into this game, I was disappointed when he finally lost a life. I totally expect more from this guy”

Twin Galaxies was founded during the original video game boom in the early 1980s and still maintains a massive database of scores from it’s inception to modern hits on the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, XBox 360, and PlayStation 3 via it’s website and publications. Twin Galaxies scores have been reported by worldwide sources such as Guinness World Records, G4tv, MTV, Wired Magazine, CNN and more.
