What exactly is going on with the disgraced 'king of Donkey Kong'?

Competitive Gamer Billy Mitchell Responds To His High Scores Getting Removed What exactly is going on with the disgraced 'king of Donkey Kong'?

You can check out his full statement in the video above.

Last week, Twin Galaxies and the Guinness Book of World Records stripped Donkey Kong record holder Billy Mitchell of his high scores.

Mitchell's score was disqualified as Twin Galaxies was not able to find sufficient evidence proving that he had not used an emulator to achieve the milestone score, as opposed to a real Donkey Kong arcade cabinet. Throughout Twin Galaxies' review process, Mitchell held his tongue even though he had the opportunity to defend himself. "We now believe that they are not from an original unmodified" Donkey Kong machine, Twin Galaxies said in their statement.

As reported by Eurogamer, Mitchell released the following statement through Old School Gamer Magazine, a publication he is affiliated with. The more damning implication is that Mitchell-previously credited with being the first to score a flawless game on Pac-Man and the first to crack 1 million points on Donkey Kong-faked his games. He goes on to throw some minor shade at the way that Twin Galaxies is run now and seems quite bitter that they would go back and delete his high scores so long after the fact.

In a professional manner, not in a shock-jock mentality designed to create hits, we will show that everything that has been done - everything was done - professionally, according to the rules, according to the scoreboard, [and] the integrity that was set up. "I wish I had it in my hands right now". He says that it will take time for him to gather evidence supporting his claims of legitimacy and as he does he will do so with professionalism. Witnesses, documents, everything will be made available to you, ' said Mitchell. Now, Billy Mitchell has announced that he will be revealing evidence to prove his innocence at a future date that will clear his name.
