There’s been some buzz this past week about a new found secret in Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! that tells you exactly when to punch to knock out the second Piston Honda and Bald Bull. I find it crazy that a game that has been around for about 30 years is still dropping Easter Eggs. Redditor midwesternhousewives, great name by the way, uncovered the signal and as any good humanitarian would do – they posted it to YouTube for the world to enjoy. As someone that played Tyson’s Punch-Out so much that knock out moves became second nature – I don’t think I ever looked in the background to decipher any hidden knock out clues. I was too busy trying to breath, focus and counting steps to make sure I didn’t get my ass handed to me by a special knock out move. I always thought there was something in the camera flashes which was confirmed by Satoru Iwata in a Nintendo president’s roundtable in 2009. But a flinching bearded man telling me when to punch Piston Honda for a KO? No way. I don’t believe some bearded jabroni in the front row of a boxing match is part of some ‘fix’ scheme. I think he ducks cause he doesn’t want to see Little Mac’s head explode from a devastating Piston Honda or Bald Bull blast. But, it’s true according to the video below…unless this is some elaborate hoax. It is the internet after all. [via: Polygon source: Reddit]
