The Billy Mitchell Donkey Kong saga has ended in a settlement.

Mitchell settled his defamation lawsuit against Twin Galaxies, the organization that dispossessed him of his Donkey Kong and Pac-Man record-holder status in 2018. Courthouse News reported that the settlement is confidential.

Mitchell sued Twin Galaxies for defamation in 2020 over its accusations that he’d used an emulator to cheat. Guinness World Records, which also removed Mitchell’s records, later reinstated them when it couldn’t prove he’d cheated.
