Mitchell has now reacted to the controversy in a video, which can be viewed here.

He made his statement to Old School Gamer Magazine and the video in question was uploaded by YouTube user Ryan Burger. Do you believe Billy Mitchell is still a fair player and did not cheat with his high scores? 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. 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.

A Guinness World Records spokesperson explained that since Twin Galaxies was its source of verification for the highest score on Pac-Man and first flawless score on Pac-Man, Mitchell will no longer be recognised as the holder of either of these records.
