Donkey Kong champion opens King of Kong Arcade

On-again off-again Donkey Kong world champion Billy Mitchell has opened his very own really truly arcade. No, not closed. Opened.

According to Arcade Heroes, the new venue doesn’t feature a Donkey Kong machine, nor much of a retro presence at all, instead on more recent popular cabinets.

The champion’s arcade was sprung on the Internet by one Walter Day, who took the photo above and seems to have recorded a video tour, embedded below.

You can visit King of Kong (and attempt to corner Mitchell and demand a match) if you’re in the vicinity of Orlando Airport, Florida.
