Nothing will ever be as fun as say the name "Soda Popinski" to every time you play the game Mike Tyson's Punch-Out !!, but one of the players still looking for new ways to squeeze more life than in the 29 years old former boxing classic.
An Easter egg "new" was discovered by Midwesternhousewives, a Reddit user who uploaded YouTube and a video detailing a visual cue previously undetected classic NES titles.
It’s common knowledge that Piston Honda, one of the game’s opponents, can be knocked out with a single punch as he winds back for a special attack, but what you (probably) didn’t know is the Punch-Out!! developers have been dropping in-game hints about when to strike this whole time. Midwesternhousewives’ video points out the bearded man standing in the audience in the upper left corner of the screen during the second round of your match with Honda. When this man ducks, that’s your cue to punch. Earn to die
“I wanted to prove that this wasn’t just a one-time anomaly,” Midwesternhousewives says in the video. “I actually went through and did it all three rounds.”
The same audience member is present during the second round of the next battle (with Bald Bull), again ducking as a visual cue signaling players to strike.
