Twenty-nine years after the game’s original release, Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!! still has secrets left to discover.
Indeed, Redditor midwesternhousewives has discovered a visual cue that enables you deliver a one-hit knockout to Piston Honda in the second fight—something that many gamers knew was possible but, until now, seemed random.
Check out the explanation in the video below.
Basically, when the bearded spectator in the front row ducks, throw the finishing punch. This cue also works during Bald Bull’s charge attack in the second fight. Back in 2009, the late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed that a camera flash signals when to throw the punch during the first Bad Bull bout.
