Magic the Gathering Armageddon was released in June 1997.
Acclaim's Mountain View, California-based coin-op division went out of business shortly after creating this game. It never went into full production, which is a shame, since the title had both an innovative, complex gameplay and a hot license going for it. Only a handful of units shipped (one was spotted in the Tomorrowland arcade at Walt Disney World in 1998; another showed up at Namco's WonderPark in San Jose, CA the same year), but few people even know this game exists. Multiple previews of the game appeared in GamePro magazine, as well as other enthustiast publications.
This was Acclaim's third coin-op, joining its previous titles of "NBA Jam Extreme
" and "Batman Forever
". The game was not released for any home systems, and has no relation to Acclaim's 'Magic The Gathering' titles for the Sony PlayStation.
