Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! - Easter Egg Discovered After 29yrs

Children born in the 1980s, listen up.

Remember "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!" on the orginal Nintendo Entertainment System? Remember how each opponent got increasingly more difficult to defeat as you traversed your way through the rankings as "Little Mac?"

Opportunities to land a blow, be it a simple jab or a power punch, were fewer and farther between as you worked your way up to the ultimate boss Iron Mike himself. It's been 29 years since it first came out, but gamers are still fascinated by the title. So much so that a Redditor recently unearthed an Easter egg, a visual clue, that tips you off as to when to throw a knockout punch against two of the game's tougher foes, Piston Honda and Bald Bull.

Cool trick but you could probably find similar static movements among other individuals in the crowd for the same thing.

There's a camera flash that signals Bald Bull the first time you fight him as well, that most people didn't realize until it was brought up a few years back. When it came out, the developer mentioned there were other things.

I read about this earlier today, love hearing about little things like this that people never discovered.
