Donkey Kong king Billy Mitchell says he didn't cheat

Billy's the one on the right by the way

"Donkey Kong scandal" is just the sort of colourful event one might experience in 2018, specifically, one Billy Mitchell, heretofore known in gaming circles as the "video game player of the century".

'80s gaming rockstar Billy Mitchell has recorded a short statement regarding the controversies of recent days, whereby his high score records on a selection of games were removed from Twin Galaxies, under suspicion of falsifying multiple Donkey Kong runs.

While Twin Galaxies has not yet commented on Mitchell's statement, management and staff of the registry have many times stated that the integrity of the leaderboards is their biggest concern. In a new statement made to Old School Gamer Magazine, Billy Mitchell says that he'll soon present evidence to show that his records were achieved in a manner that aligns with Twin Galaxies' rules, with "nothing" withheld.

Mitchell's score had been under suspicion since February after other gamers had questioned his rankings on the organization's forums, launching an investigation using video footage taken of games played. King of Kong referenced that that he was a referee and on the board of directors.

I've been asked to address things that are recently in the media. Now, Mitchell has chose to respond to the investigation and seems content on proving that he did not cheat. Mitchell claims his process is "true, professional due diligence" as opposed to Twin Galaxies' "shock jock mentality designed to create hits".

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.

It remains to be seen what sort of evidence Mitchell has at his disposal to prove his innocence, but this will be the continuation of an already enthralling saga. The filmed followed Kong player Steve Wiebe's attempt to beat Mitchell's record on Donkey Kong.
