Billy Mitchell Issues Official Response to Twin Galaxies Donkey Kong Cheating Allegations

Billy Mitchell Issues Official Response to Twin Galaxies Donkey Kong Cheating Allegations

In a new statement, the former King of Kong denied the charges against him, promising that his Donkey Kong scores are genuine and authentic.

A Donkey Kong arcade game. The Guinness World Records organization quickly followed suit, but Mitchell isn't stepping down quietly. It's a decision that certainly wasn't made lightly, as Billy Mitchell is probably the most famous face in retro gaming and has been deeply involved with Twin Galaxies since its founding in the 1980s. Still, Guinness World Records acted in accordance with Twin Galaxies and wiped Mitchell's records from its books, per the Washington Post.

Billy Mitchell's Donkey Kong and Pac-Man records have been disqualified by Guinness World Records. An investigation was launched into the video footage taken of each of the high scoring games. Mitchell states over the course of the almost minute long video that he believes his Donkey Kong score is legitimate and that he is now working on bringing forward his case to Twin Galaxies as to why it should still stand. "(O) ur investigation of the tape content ends with that conclusion and assertion".

In addition, Steve Wiebe, who featured in King of Kong alongside Mitchell as the protagonist of the documentary (for lack of a better term), has also also spoken out in light of the controversy. Mitchell claims his process is "true, professional due diligence" as opposed to Twin Galaxies' "shock jock mentality designed to create hits".

"Everything was done professionally, according to the rules, according to the integrity that was set up".

Essentially, the Donkey Kong record he broke wasn't on a Donkey Kong machine, and that ain't cool, but also he might not have broken it anyway, and that's even less cool.
