They called it a "hack" at the end of the article. A visual cue is a fucking hack to them.

Now that the news has established using visual cues as hacking. We can now go into the real world with this knowledge to hack the planet using only head nudges. :0

Wasn't this published in a hint/secrets book at one point in time? I remember reading about something similar at least.

I'm pretty sure it was completely unknown before this. One of the game's designers came out and said there were still a couple of Easter Eggs that hadn't been found. And then that designer gave out one of them. This prompted the guy in the video to discover the second one.

I had an NES and I don't remember this, but I didn't buy walkthroughs or subscribe to nintendo power.

I'm picturing a developer somewhere running around hustling arcades for the last 3 decades.

"Hey, I bet I can knock him out with one punch. Lets make it a $100 bet?"

He's reading this right now realizing his run has finally come to an end.

It's amazing that secrets like this still exist in old games. I feel like these days it would have been datamined within a week of release. If not before due to pirates getting ahold of it early.

This wasn't just discovered. I had this game and knew about this in the 80s. I've used this trick to beat him before. It showed up in gaming mags in the tips and tricks sections. I couldn't tell you specifically which one, but I know for a fact I read about this and used this trick myself. This has been known pretty much since within a year of the game's launch, it was just lost and forgotten because the game is so old.
