Overview

Midori / MysticDistance Reveal refers to the revelation that Midori, a video game news leaker thought to be a Japanese woman, is an alternate persona of leaker MysticDistance, a white man in his 20s. The reveal was done by an anonymous group in the video game leaking community and confirmed by MysticDistance. It led to jokes about MysticDistance's attempts to convincingly play a Japanese woman on social media.

Background

Midori, Twitter / X handle @MbKKssTBhz5,[1] launched on Twitter in October 2022. The account built up a reputation of being a fairly legitimate video game leaker[5] by posting information about Sega properties. Some of their "leaks" about items such as Persona 5 Tactica DLC,[2] Persona 3 Remake’s DLC[3] and Sonic Rumble [4] have been passed around gaming communities and seen as credible information.

MysticDistance was a disgraced leaker in the Persona community due to posting inaccurate information and for previous suspicious behavior in Discord and their association with a leaker named Zippo. In a thread in the subreddit /r/Gamingcirclejerk[6] on June 12th, 2024, Redditor NIN10DOXD wrote:

Mysticdistance and Zippo were "leakers" who got blacklisted because they mostly lied and because they were in a Discord server with another leaker named Sabi who got in trouble for hacking, grooming, communicating threats, and ab*se. He threatened to take down the other guys with him right before he deleted his Twitter because he was being sued by Nintendo.

Also on June 12th, 2024, an anonymously written document posted to 0bin[7] exposed that Midori was MysticDistance posting as a Japanese woman. For evidence, they posted one of Midori's translations[8] that had comments from MysticDistance using his real name. That day, the Midori account confirmed that they were MysticDistance[8] and that they would retire from leaking (shown below).


みどり @MbKKssTBhz5 I will not deny the rumored information that the account that has been known to many as Midori (MbKKssTBhz5) is indeed MysticDistance. I think many have been aware of this for a long time now, but if they were, they chose to say nothing. I appreciate that. 8:12 PM ⚫ Jun 12, 2024 4.4M Views :
