Daft Punk’s latest video is a throwback to the original 1982 sci-fi classic Tron. The duo scored Tron Legacy, which hits theaters Dec. 17, and this morning released its lead video–featuring several nods to the past. As MTV notes, it opens at Flynn’s Arcade, owned by Tron’s lead character who’s a game designer for Encom. In the video, the two play a game called “Derezzed.” There’s no game with that title in the movie. But “Derez” is a term used referring to dying in battle during a game.
Next, they begin their one-on-one fight in the game. The graphics are a fittingly a bit more video gamey than what we’ve seen in the movie’s trailer. Check it out after the jump to find out who the winner is.
