Billy Mitchell, newly disgraced arcade gaming champion and star of the documentary King of Kong, has issued a statement following last week’s revelation that his Donkey Kong score, and indeed all his other record breaking arcade scores, had been disqualified after a lengthy investigation by Twin Galaxies.
Mitchell, speaking with his affiliated publication Old School Gamer Magazine, has promised to reveal new information that will apparently prove that he did not cheat in his efforts to bag the high-score in the retro classic. Mitchell insists that the investigation will reveal that everything was done ‘professionally’ and ‘according to the rules.’
‘Everything will be transparent. Everything will be available. I wish I had it in my hands right now, I wish I could hand it to you. But it’s taken a considerable amount of time. Witnesses, documents, everything will be made available to you,’ said Mitchell.
