Duel is a 32X tech demo created by Acclaim in 1994. According to Mean Machines Sega, the british magazine where the first images of the game were published, Duel was planned for 32x, but it’s unlikely that any real development was even started. 32X’s 3D capabilities were in fact very poor, and many titles conceived for the ill-fated add-on were later released for Saturn. However, as long as we know, Duel was not one of them.
Here is the original article which appeared on Mega machines Sega 20:
In the video added below you can see how Duel was a CGI tech demo aimed to show Acclaim realistic character animation system using Acclaim’s Optical Motion Capture System.
It’s unclear if a game was ever planned out of it however the technolgy was later used in other games for the new generation of consoles (for example Acclaim’s Advance Technology Group is credited for Alien Trilogy’s full motion videos).
It seems the tech demo was the fruit of a deal between Acclaim and Sega (based on a italian mag scan).
