As revealed by Karl Jobst on YouTube in the video at the top of the page, previously unseen photographic evidence shows what appears to be a non-original, potentially eight-way joystick as opposed to the four-way stick of the original cabinet.

The offending red stick, which differs substantially to the arcade original black stick with a chromed stem — Image: Karl Jobst For those unfamiliar with this whole sordid saga, we have covered it in-depth multiple times in the past, beginning when rumours of foul play around the video documenting the former King of Kong's submitted scores first surfaced.

Mitchell claimed that the videos must have been faked as part of "a conspiracy nearly as broad (and untenable) as the Kennedy assassination," as stated in his subsequent lawsuit documentation.

Twin Galaxies nuked Mitchell's scores back in 2018 and banned him from competing while also recognising Steve Wiebe as the first million-point DK player.

You can read more about all of these events in the articles at the bottom of the page, but ultimately Mitchell's current lawsuit claims that he achieved his high score on totally unmodified, original arcade hardware — a claim backed by his witnesses, which Jobst suggests are of dubious reliability in the video above (seriously, it's only 13 minutes, so give it a watch) — and these newly-found photos provide compelling evidence that suggests otherwise.

Gavin loves a bit of couch co-op, especially when he gets to delegate roles, bark instructions and give much-appreciated performance feedback at the end.
